*I went with 1/3 cup maple syrup because I added the chocolate chips. I would suggest adding 1/3 cup first and giving them a taste test. If they are not sweet enough for you, then use 1/2 cup. I used the ENJOY Life brand of mini chocolate chips because they are dairy-free and gluten-free. I personally find that cow's milk dairy in chocolate bothers me (makes my wrists achey due to inflammation).
They will seem a bit crumbly when you put them on your baking sheet, don't worry they solidify nicely when they are cooked.
