A homemade brown sugar substitute for people trying to watch their sugar intake.
- Mix Splenda with molasses, stirring with a fork until well mixed and then further mixing with fingertips until it is of a brown sugar consistency.
- Measure and use as you would brown sugar.
- (24 grams Carb in 1 cup Splenda; 16 grams Carb in 1 Tbls molasses= 40 grams Carb per 1 cup brown sugar substitute).
This ingenius concoction works and tastes just great. I used it for my yummy Strawberries Dipped in Sour Cream and Brown Sugar and there was only a slight noticeable difference in taste. I always use the dense, blackstrap molasses which added a slight anise taste, but if a milder molasses is used, the result should be even better. I plan on making some ginger cookies with this subsitute and feel pretty certain that it will work just fine. Thanks for finding or creating this Leta!!
I threw out my Splenda when I found out that the Chlorine in it is very dangerous. I will try this with a bit of Stevia mixed with molasses instead.
