    These look good, but I think this is pretty far from being paleo with the guar gum, stevia and xylitol… Why not just use honey? Is the guar gum really necessary? I was excited to try this recipe, until I saw the ingredients.

    I personally don’t use any guar gum, stevia, or xylitol in my recipes, so if I’m excited about a recipe, I’ll just tweak it a bit. :) Good luck, tweaking. :)
