Healthier Alternatives to Sugar

Lately I've really been trying to cut down on my sugar intake and have been looking at natural, healthier alternatives.
It would be easy to adjust most of my recipes to some of these new sweeteners.
I personally use:
Raw Honey:
Real Maple Syrup
Stevia Powder

Xylitol: I've heard nothing but great things about this. Use 1:1 for sugar. Here is a website with a bit more information on using for baking. Cooking and Baking with Xyitol.

I hope this gives you a few alternatives to eating a little more healthy without having to pull your sweet tooth.

BLESSINGS!

  1. I've been off of sugar and artificial sweeteners (rarely used anyway) for about 2 months now.

    I use stevia for tea and lemonade.
    'Just started substituting honey for sugar in baking. Last week I made banana muffins w/only 1/4 cup of honey.
    Delicious!
    I'll check out the xylitol.
