Cookies are my go to sweet treat. They are easy to make in a large batch and freeze so, I do not eat EVERY SINGLE ONE. I also like cookies because I can tone down the sweetness and they still turn out great! I do not use white sugar in my house so, sometimes I sweeten them with maple syrup, coconut sugar or honey. The cookies I made today are sweetened with coconut sugar.
Coconut sugar benefits: “trace amounts of vitamin C, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, calcium, zinc, iron and copper. Coconut sugar also provides small amounts of phytonutrients, such as polyphenols, flavonoids and anthocyanidin, and antioxidants.”- livingstrong.com
Coconut sugar also as a little more of a caramelized flavor and color. It also has a 1:1 ratio in replacing it in all recipes.
