Source The lovely sisters who blog at Naturally Sweet Recipes were pretty much the first bloggers I found who share my no-refined-sugar mentality. They bake their recipes with ALL natural sweeteners that are low on the glycemic index, like coconut sugar (which I learned about from them!), maple syrup, agave nectar, stevia and more. I asked the sisters if one of them would mind stepping in to guest post while I'm away and share some information on one of our favourite sweeteners. The youngest sister, Chelsea, obliged and has provided a great post with all you need to know about coconut sugar and some fabulous recipes to try out. I'm sure you won't mind taste testing these beauties! Anna xx
I've told you before that I love cookies. I officially turn into a Cookie Monster when they're around. Alas, the soft, gooey, chewy Mrs. Fields cookies I loved so much growing up now make me feel so ill from all of their truckloads of sugar that cookies are a rare treat to be enjoyed only when I bother to make a batch. I've been baking with stevia and agave, and both produce good cookies. Really yummy, delicious cookies, like these I made only a month or so ago. Oh they were delicious.
