Make and eat good food with us.

Little did we know prior to watching our carbs that sugar was in everything.

No one said giving up sugar is easy. Our test kitchen compared the basic sweeteners that appear in our bakery recipes to find out what substitute is really one-for-one on taste.

Basic Sweeteners

Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener

Anthony’s Erythritol and Monk Fruit Sweetener

Health Garden Allulose Sweetener

Tasting Notes

Monk Fruit Sweeteners

  • Great for ketogenic, diabetic, candida, paleo, vegan, low-carb, low-sugar, non-GMO, and all-natural diets
  • Recommended white sugar substitute for baking and cooking
  • Products generally have monk fruit extract and erythritol
  • Available varieties: baking, classic, golden and powdered

Coffee tasting notes:

No bitterness or tang. Definitely sweet after the two teaspoons but a little less sweet than sugar at that amount (adding half of a teaspoon more the desired sweetness was achieved). Nice mouth feel, really. This Monk Fruit combo sweetener coats your tongue (almost in a buttery way) unlike others that linger at the back of the throat and can turn to a bitter aftertaste. Best part: richest flavor with Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
