Just in Time for the Holidays!
The quintessential holiday dessert has got to be cookies. The sheer variety is impressive and there isn’t a child in this world that would say no to one. 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!).
Just look at that crackle on top! These are coming to you just in time for the holidays and since they’re completely sugar-free, you know you can indulge in a few more than you really need.
Our Chewy Ginger Cookies are made with So Nourished brown sugar erythritol. It’s basically erythritol mixed with a bit of 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. If you love chocolate chip cookies and their characteristic flavor, you’ve got to get yourself a bag of So Nourished Gold.
As with all of the So Nourished sweeteners, So Nourished 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!
