I create sweet delectables the way I enjoy them, less sweet, filled with fruits and vegetables, with gluten-free, sugar-free - all sorts of options!
At home today I'm working on a gluten-free, vegan, paleo-friendly seasonal dessert.
In designing this healthy harvest treat I found myself researching sweeteners that can be used in paleo cooking. For your information these are: honey, maple syrup, stevia (all of which I had hoped were acceptable), fruit juice, crushed dates, crushed raisins (not shocking - didn't think of these as much of as sweeteners, but that's what this whole thing about is learning a new way to think about "sweets"), and then for the surprising one, molasses. No agave, which they say is super high in fructose, a big no-no. Honey, maple syrup, and stevia - my favorite sweeteners, great news!
