Two ingredients that take you out of Sugarland and into Whittle Your Waistland
You guys, it can seem SO HARD to make substitutions in the recipes you love sometimes!!!
You don’t want to give up ALL the things you love and make it seem like you jumped on the Crazy Slide without ever looking back, so you try to swap and sub and mix and match to take a stab at keeping some sort of comfort around you.
Sometimes, it is an epic fail. But sometimes, you win.
If you like what you made and it resembles your past favorite food enough to fool your husband or kids, we are calling that a win.
It is the same secret trick with brown sugar. You can swap that out with two super simple ingredients, and NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW.
It’s that simple.
Here is my version of sugar free brown sugar. (Is that even a thing? Well it is now.)
How to make one cup of brown sugar:
1 cup erythritol
1 Tbl molasses
Mix both into a small bowl until evenly mixed, or add directly to your recipe. No one will ever know the difference!
Like it dark? Stick with the 1 Tablespoon.
Like it lighter? Try adding just 2 teaspoons instead of the full Tablespoon.
And that’s it! Enjoy!
And I dare you to tell me the substitution was pretty much magically hidden, it’s that good and that easy.
Want to know what I put my “brown sugar” in? Try my famous chicken wing rub. And by “famous,” I mean my family loves it… but still…. That’s a good nine people right there, and counting…! Enjoy!
