Lakanto Fall into Baking Party & Chocolate Chip Cookies

 I love introducing healthy products to my friends and one of the best ways to do just that is with a delicious recipe. I received some products from Lakanto to share with friends. Lakanto makes monk fruit sweetener and other delicious products that contain monk fruit. Lakanto sent me several bags of their delicious zero-calorie sweetener, along with some other goodies to share with my friends.

  If you are not familiar with monk fruit and Lakanto, it is my favorite zero-calorie sweetener to bake with. I can substitute this keto-approved sugar substitute in my baking recipes like cookies and my family can't taste a difference. Trust me I have tried other natural sweeteners like stevia in my baking and my family complains about the taste. While I love stevia for my coffee, I don't like it for baking.

 You may wonder why I use monk fruit instead of sugar, it is so I can make my treats healthier for my family. Lakanto Classic Monkfruit Sweetener is a zero-calorie, zero-glycemic sweetener that is made from a proprietary mixture of high-quality monk fruit extract and non-GMO erythritol. This sweetener is a convenient, one-to-one sugar substitute that tastes like sugar and has no bad aftertaste. I Lakanto Monkfruit Sweeteners in my baked goods so my family can enjoy cookies without all that sugar.

I let them taste the cookies 

 A recipe for chocolate chip cookies was included with my goodie box. The recipe used the Lakanto Classic and Lakanto Golden monk fruit sweeteners instead of cane sugar. So I made the cookies and brought them to my Friday bible study group. I placed the plate of the chocolate chip cookies with the other food that people had brought to share. Usually, there are about 10 people at our meeting, so there is always a good variety of food to eat. Everyone filled their plates with the food and I was happy to see that everyone grabbed a couple chocolate chip cookies.

 While I had brought the bags of Lakanto sweetener to share with everyone, I hid them so no one saw them. I wanted everyone to taste the cookies first to see how they liked them. Everyone enjoyed their cookies and several people went back for more cookies. We then had our usual Bible study and fellowship. Then I passed out the bags of the Lakanto Classic sweetener. One person was familiar with monk fruit while the others had never heard about this sweetener.

They were surprised that the cookies were made without sugar

 I then revealed to my friends that the chocolate chip cookies were made without sugar and instead made with the Lakanto sweetener. They were surprised and said the cookies were delicious. I gave everyone a copy of the chocolate chip cookie recipe that is found on the Lakanto website. One of my friends said he was going to make the cookies later this week.

Delicious Suntella chocolate spread

 Lakanto also sent me a container of their Suntella Sugar-free Chocolate Spread. Suntella spread is a mixture of decadent chocolate, sunflower seeds, and other all-natural ingredients. I tried it on my toast and apple slices and it was very delicious. Suntella is Keto, diabetic, candida, paleo, vegan, low-carb, low-sugar, and all-natural. The best part about this chocolate spread is that it is not loaded with sugar like similar chocolate spreads and it is dairy-free. Since it is made with sunflower seeds instead of hazelnuts, my daughter can enjoy it. My daughter has a nut allergy and I have a dairy allergy so I have to be careful with my baked goods when she visits as I tend to use almond milk. So when I know that she is visiting, I have to use coconut milk in my recipes.

So if you are looking for a way to reduce your sugar in your favorite recipes, you need to try Lakanto sweetener. Here are a couple dessert recipes that I have used Lakanto in and my family loves them.
