In my sugar-free recipes, I have often used erythritol. Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that has been approved for use as a food additive in the United States and throughout much of the world.Erythritol is 60–70% as sweet as sucrose (table sugar) yet it is almost noncaloric, it does not affect blood sugar or cause tooth decay, and is partially absorbed by the body.
Most recently I have started to use monk fruit. Monk fruit also is known as lo han guo, is a small round fruit grown in Southeast Asia. It has been safely used for centuries in Eastern medicine as a cold and digestive aid, and now it is also being used to sweeten foods and beverages. Monk fruit sweetener is created by removing the seeds and skin of the fruit, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice. The fruit extract, or juice, is around 150-200 times sweeter than sugar and contains zero calories per serving – meaning a very small amount provides a lot of sweetness. I love using monk fruit for baking.
My friends and family loved these cookies! With this recipe, you can easily switch up the chocolate chips and nuts if you like. Chocolate chip cookies are my go-to comfort snacks. Few things are more comforting than a warm, freshly-baked cookie with a big cup of coffee. I love the freshly baked cookie smell throughout my home. I usually make a batch of dough, then bake half and freeze the other half. My daughter and I love to bake these. She has no idea that I am not using sugar. Don’t tell your kids.
