Naturally sweet and nutrient-rich, happy maple syrup can be a perfect substitute for other sweeteners in most recipes. When experimenting, pay attention to the amount of liquid in your recipe and how the taste of maple syrup changes or enhances the flavor of your creation.
Honey = equal amounts of maple syrup
Agave syrup = equal amounts of maple syrup
Sugar = 1/2 cup of maple syrup per 1 cup of sugar.
happy maple syrup does not cause the same spike in blood insulin levels as some other sugars. It has the same beneficial classes of polyphenolic compounds found in berries, tomatoes, tea, red wine, whole wheat, and flax seed.
And that's why we say: whatever sugar can do, maple can do better!
