These are super sweet and taste like candy. They are good but I think the amount of maple syrup can be cut down. Also, a maple syrup with a little heat like habanero added to it might be good too. UPDATE. Made this again and switched it up a little. Probably violated the "light" part of cooking light in doing so but I think it was a little better. Omitted oil but added a little pancetta with the fat rendered in sauté pan. Used 1tsp maple syrup which made it less sweet. With the balance of pancetta could maybe do the whole 1 1/2 tsp of maple syrup.
