Great for a light dessert I would just use a sugar sub like Truvia or Splenda and sub the oil with coconut oil or unsalted butter. For a drizzle, I think a little Agave. Pros: good balance of fats and carbs Cons: sugar, vegetable oil

This recipe sounds wonderful. I will try it with Black Locust honey and a variety of cheeses, maybe a goat to start with.
