Have to agree 100% w/ previous comments about the corn syrup. It's not possible to buy corn syrup, whether "light" or not, w/o high fructose corn syrup, which is being blamed more and more for the rising numbers of people w/ insulin resistance and diabetes. Definitely not a healthy ingredient, and nobody should be eating it. Honey or agave nectar would be better substitutes.

The only review this received was not positive. I think if honey, molasses or pure maple syrup was used to replace the corn syrup the recipe would be "healthy".

How can you call this recipe healthy??? The second ingredient is corn syrup!
