Hi! I am very excited to try this recipe. Does the honey make it sweet? I noticed there wasn't too much in the recipe so I wasn't sure. If so, do you

The amount of honey isn't enough to make the sticks taste sweet, no- but it would help accent the savory flavors and help balance out any bitterness from the grains, seeds, or wheat flour. The sugars in honey also help promote browning during baking. It's not unusual to have a small amount of some form of sugar used in a savory baked product, for these reasons. It helps to accent and balance flavors.
