Just an FYI, maple syrup has LESS sugar (10.62 cals/tsp) than regular sugar (15 cals/tsp)so substituting sugar+maple flavoring actually increases the sugar content. I have baked these with Splenda and maple flavoring and though not as good as the regular recipe it was a very good diabetic treat. - 9/23/09
I never baked with fresh ginger before -- how does that affect the flavor versus ground? I love ginger, but it can be too strong for me. I can't wait to try this recipe! I will also substitute applesauce for the oil - I won't mind if it changes the consistency.. I'll report back my results. - 11/17/08
