Brownies with Agave


I tried to convert my recipe for brownies from sugar to agave. I decreased the sugar by 25% but the brownies did not taste good. What should use as the conversion method? I went thru Cook'n with Agave, but there wasn't a recipe for brownies.

Please help.



Hi Kate,

Sorry your brownies didn't turn out. That's always disappointing. Here's the conversion for future reference:

Just substitute Agave in equal parts for honey in most recipes. As a substitute for sugar, use 3/4 cup agave nectar for 1 cup of sugar, and reduce the liquid content by 1/4 cup.

By typing in "agave brownies" into a google search engine, I found a few recipes for brownies you might enjoy. Here are some links you could "capture" into your Cook'n 10 version, if you have that software.
