Hi you really need
That amount of syrup so you can use rice syrup instead. You would try adding dates to help bind and make it more sticky.

That’s a lot of agave/honey! Both of which are pretty expensive (I only use local honey) making his recipe nearly £10 to make. Can I reduce the honey and use something else to bind it?
