I'm a little confused by the nutritional info: it says "Cho: 22 g," then later says, "Cholesterol: 0 mg" …. is "Cho" in fact "Carbohydrates"?
Becky, Thanks for noticing that. Yes, it's carbohydrates and has now been corrected:).
where is the brown sugar in the recipe list? is it agave nectar?
Teresa, A touch of agave nectar is used, yes. No brown sugar.
