  1. I find this to be very misleading. When I put this recipe into our Genesis nutritional database I get MUCH higher calories, carbohydrates, and sugar. It is healthier because it is using natural ingredients, but saying that it only has 1/2 tsp of added sugar does not account for the actual 38g of sugar in one piece. This still causes a spike in blood sugar which is not healthy.
