Agave Almond Slice

Too much sugar is bad for you! But most of us enjoy sweet tastes, so except on special occasions we indulge this by using the natural sweetness of dried fruit, birch bark (xylitol), stevia, gour and agave. We don't use honey because of bee welfare issues and the fact that it's generally very refined, plus you can't really bake with it because at high temperatures it can become toxic. If using sugar, we recommend the least refined possible. Please note that white sugar, as well as being an antinutrient (ie: substance which not only contributes "empty calories" but also robs the  body of nutrients) is often refined using bone charcoal filtration- ugh! (And certainly not a vegetarian practice.) So if you do want to use white sugar, eg: icing sugar for a special cake, make sure it is from beet sugar (like Silver Spoon brand) to avoid this process.

You can make many different types of natural sweet with ground nuts, seeds and dried fruit
