@gracesmom - You're right, we must have overlooked the sugar. We have corrected the recipe. You'll need 3/4 cup of sugar for the muffins. -The editors of RecipeLion

The instructions indicate mixing the sugar with the honey, etc., yet there does not appear to be any sugar listed in the ingredients (other than in the syrup). What is the quantity and type of sugar? Thanks.
