Come to think of it… the holiday season is when people’s will is wavering most so there may only be a few adults that would refuse a cookie! Especially ones this delicious: Chewy Ginger Cookies (sugar-free too!).

Our Chewy Ginger Cookies are made with a brown sugar erythritol substitute called Sukrin Gold. It’s basically erythritol mixed with a bit of blackstrap molasses – the same method used to make regular brown sugar, actually. Blackstrap molasses is used to give a more caramel-y, butter-y, warm, “baked” taste to sugar – lending to its unique flavor. The same goes for Sukrin Gold! If you love chocolate chip cookies and their characteristic flavor, you’ve got to get yourself a bag of Sukrin Gold.

As all of Sukrin’s sweeteners, Sukrin Gold is low carb and low calorie, so it’s great for healthier holiday baking.

Tip: if you don’t want to buy a bag or can’t find one, try making brown sugar erythritol yourself. All you need is your standard granular erythritol (a staple in most low carb/keto households) and some blackstrap molasses. Molasses can be found in most stores in the baking aisle. Be sure not to use corn syrup – that’s a no-no! The basic recipe is 1 cup erythritol and 1 tablespoon of molasses. Combine and mix until uniform in color. And bam – you’ve got “brown sugar” for all your baking needs!

We provide nutritional information for our recipes as a courtesy to our readers. The data is calculated using the MyFitnessPal app. We remove fiber and sugar alcohols, including erythritol, from the final carbohydrate count since they do not affect blood glucose levels in most individuals. We try to be as accurate as possible but we encourage you to calculate nutritional information on your own.
