agave is sweeter than granulated sugar (including palm sugar). Going from the reverse of the guidelines I've gotten from an agave syrup manufacturer, I'd put in 50% more palm sugar than the amount of agave that's called for. Though you'll have to adjust the liquids in the recipes, too--take out about 1/4 cup for every cup of sugar.
