      I don't understand what you mean when you say "the sugar bakes off". If that were true, wouldn't the sugar bake off of anything cooked in the oven; cookies, cakes, etc?

        Cuz it tastes super sweet before it goes into the oven, but the sugar bakes off and it comes out way more mellow. It bakes out. The sugar goes Poof! I don't know how to explain it. I picked it up from food network or something. I always add more sugar to puddings and stuff than I think they need, cuz then it will come out just right, rather than underwhelming.

          Because it does not bake off. That's like saying when you bake garlic it bakes off because it tastes more mellow. When you boil syrup it concentrates, and eventually carmelizes, but that's just removing water - all of the stuff that is bad for you in sugar sources is still there.

          Many of your recipes look delicious because they're full of sugar. A cup and a half of syrup and a tablespoon of molasses? A little is fine for flavor and a touch of sweetness but there's no way that's healthy. Everything in moderation, of course; no one's going to sit there and eat the whole thing. But. I wouldn't qualify it as a guilt-free alternative.

              So, you're just talking about the flavor, not the nutritional (or non-nutritional) content.

                Right. You're still dealing with all the carbs, but it won't be as maple-y if you cut down the maple syrup. The molasses is really optional, but it adds a nice punch.

                Why would you eat an entire pumpkin pie by yourself? That's crazy.

                  To be fair Dr. BB, some of us struggle with sweets right in front of us and could eat a whole pumpkin pie given the chance.

                        Fair enough. I could easily do it with some of my favorite demon-foods, too.

                          In all fairness to the Doc, these recipes I believe she posts are for the 80/20 part of Primal. People have to take responsibility for their own actions, and exhibit some self control. If it's a temptation, keep it out of your life. Sorry to sound callous, but I've been there too. How badly do you want to heal yourself. BTW Doc, you have some GREAT recipes and I commend you for sharing with us all...Free Your Mind, and your Grok will Follow!

                            Right on, SoccerGrok! I do have some 100% Primal stuff on my blog (a lot of the lunch/dinner items, for example), but the really good stuff is for the 80/20 part of your life (hence the junk foodie part)

                              Says you. I'm eating an entire pumpkin pie tonight "Moderation" is such a silly word. This pumpkin pie is only 20% of my carb-up
