Looking for sugar alternatives for baking

Recommended Posts

  • 1 month later...

I'm in the same boat as the original poster, looking for a good sugar alternative...because as it turns out, stevia just doesn't seem to work well for me. I can always notice the bitter aftertaste except in recipes like pancakes... I like using stevia in my pancakes.


Agave nectar is awesome, but like someone else said, liquid isn't always a good option.


Right now I'm just using organic turbinado since I can't seem to find anything else that I like... I don't know the facts on Splenda or other zero cal sweeteners but I stay away from them just to be safe.


Dates are great---is date sugar different than date paste?

Sucanat? It is still an unrefined sugar (with the molasses content not taken out) and you can decrease the amount in the recipe till you get it to a measurement that will pacify your sweet tooth, but keep your insulin from spiking (though agave is the way to go for keeping your insulin from spiking. Just decrease the amount of liquid in the recipe).
