Have you ever heard of Xylitol? Me neither, until the friendly people over at Emerald Forest asked me if I would be willing to try it out in a recipe. I’m not a fan of artificial sweetners, but xylitol is all natural – they make theirs with North American Birch. To me, it tasted just like sugar, but it has 40% fewer calories and 75% fewer carbs. What a great sugar substitute for people who can’t have sugar or who are looking to cut back on calories!
I made a chocolate banana bread with mine, and it turned out delicious! Sorry I don’t have a picture : (. It got eaten too quickly!
**I received xylitol for free in order to try it in a recipe. I was under no obligation to post about it, and all opinions expressed are 100% my own.
