You may have heard of Sukrin gold sugar. It is a sugar free brown sugar replacement. After looking at its ingredients I see that malt flavoring is used. This is something I avoid as I steer clear of gluten since I have an intolerance. My sinuses swell and I break out in eczema😣
Malt is usually made from barley and is not gluten free. It can be made from corn, but that is rare. Most malt comes from barley grain that has been soaked, germinated and dried. Ingredients made from maltinclude malt flavoring,
malt syrup and malt extract, none of which are currently considered gluten free.
So imagine how excited I was to put together some commonly found ingredients to make a very tasty copycat substitute of this baking gem!
I have found my ingredients online at thrivemarket.com or luckyvitamin.com for sales. Amazon pretty much has them all too!
Keto Copycat Brown Sugar
1 cup Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener(golden preferred over classic)
3/4 tsp Frontier Brand Maple Flavoring/Extract(preferred,but others may work)
1 tsp SweetLeaf Sweet Drops Liquid Stevia – Vanilla (or other brand that lists glycerin as 1st ingredient)
Put all ingredients in a small bowl and mix with a fork cutting the extract and stevia drops into it until it is uniform in color.
Use like brown sugar in recipes. This works great in baked goods especially!!
What would you use it in?
