"Doesn't contain any sugar!" This reminds me of the county fair barkers with their scams. It has FAKE sugar, then a whole half cup of honey, gee whiz! Finally, with utter contempt toward diabetics, you fail to list (as usual, I might add) the grams of sugar. Kudos, however, for using almond flour. I have been experimenting with almond and coconut (and garbanzo, when appropriate) flours.

The honey is plenty enough sweetener for me without the substitute sweetener. Looks delicious and cannot wait to have some.
