Sugar. There always seems to be controversy surrounding sugar and the vegan lifestyle. For a variety of reasons, some choose to eat it, while others avoid it at many costs.

Whatever you choose to eat, I don't recommend substituting wet sugars (like maple syprup) for dry granulated type sugars in any recipe.
