Okay, I do enjoy some baking with coconut flour and tapioca flour (and even the occasional almond meal). I have a couple of recipes that I really enjoy and I'm looking for the best "sugar" to sweeten them with. I have been using honey quite a bit, and some maple syrup. I occasionally use brown sugar. I stay away from white sugar. Now I am intrigued by coconut sugar!! I haven't used it yet. It seems that this may be the "best" sugar substitute yet?!?! It's lower on the glycemic index, and has minerals and such. So, is it the "best" option? What is your take on all these substitute sugars. Yes, really they should all be used in moderation. In our house these alternative breads/muffins do come about fairly frequently though... we have a lot of little ones living here who can handle more carbs. So, does it really matter? Also, I have stayed away from Stevia. Something just doesn't sit right with me... I feel like I would somehow be trying to "trick" my body by using it. What's your take on Stevia?
