Have you heard yet about Coconut Sugar? It’s a great alternative to traditional sugars! This is only one of the many companies that are manufacturing coconut sugar these days. What is the big deal? It is a less refined product than many sugars. It also scores lower on the glycemic index, so it’s a better alternative for those concerned with blood sugar regulation.

What is it like? It tastes more like a rich, brown sugar; I don’t find it tastes like coconut at all. I will say the only drawback I’ve discovered is that it tends to clump or dry out more quickly, but other than this, it is a beautiful option to sweeten your dishes. It is also versatile in baked goods and, overall, an easy substitution for traditional sugars.
