I know like many of you, sometimes I feel like it's so hard to know what healthy alternative we should use as a sweetener. Sugar is so bad for us, then you hear that artificial sweeteners are bad for us. What do you do? I like to use a lot of Honey when baking and I also use Stevia in the raw, also adding in unsweetened apple sauce or bananas help make things taste better when baking. Pure Maple syrup is also great sometimes. But, you need to check out this article to help you distinguish the Good from the Bad when keeping sweeteners in your kitchen. The bad on the list (besides white sugar) are Aspartame (which is in most Diet Sodas), Agave & Splenda. Some of the good are Stevia, and oraganic, raw or local Honey. Do you try to use Healthy Sugar alternatives in your kitchen?
