Cookies, Fruit and Coffee! Oh My Sweetness! #ad

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of In The Raw and SheSpeaks. All opinions are entirely my own.

Oh my sweet goodness! We are living in the good times because of all of the available products, seasonings, and spices we have to enhance the flavors of our foods. We also know that we have to watch our intake of particular foods, one of which is sugar. 

How do you cut back on sugar when baking? How about in your morning cup of tea or coffee? How about on fruit? Sometimes you want a lil' extra sweet treat without the calories of white sugar. For me, I love using Organic Stevia In The Raw® which allows for the little extra sweetness without the calories or guilt. Did you know that Organic Stevia In The Raw® give only 3 calories but provides the sweetening equivalence of two teaspoons of sugar (32 calories!!) Oh my sweet goodness! 

Do you ever sweeten your food with Organic Stevia In The Raw®? If so what do you sweeten? Do you just sweeten your food or do you also use it for others in your home? Every time I've substituted white sugar for Organic Stevia In The Raw® no one has noticed! I love that I can cut back the use of white sugar in the home for this clean, lower calorie, non-GMO, organic, gluten-free product!



One easy peasy way I like to get in a lil' sweet treat is to take fresh fruit like strawberries and blueberries and mix with Greek Yogurt. I then give a 1 packet sprinkle of Organic Stevia In The Raw® to cut the tangy taste of the yogurt and give the mix a small sweet kick! I could eat this every day for breakfast. 





I also love adding in 1 packet to a cup of tea, especially in the evenings when I'm wanting a little sweet treat after dinner. It works every time to cut the craving of a big, high carb/high calorie dessert.


I'm a huge fan of coffee, too! Check out my video of adding Organic Stevia In The Raw® in my work coffee cup! Just 1 packet does the trick!


When it comes to baking goodies, Organic Stevia In The Raw® can be substituted with white sugar. You can go check out their website for the conversion chart to convert existing recipes from sugar to Organic Stevia In The Raw®. I did that below when I made a batch of my old time fav Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies! NO ONE even knew I made the substitution and I've been making these cookies for 20 years!




Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies 

2 c. butter Crisco
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup Organic Stevia In The Raw®
2 tsp. vanilla

1/4 tsp. salt
16 oz chocolate chips, your choice

Cream shortening and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour, soda and salt. Mix in chips. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Bake longer for a crunchier cookie.  Make 100 cookies.

Kitchen Notes- Use this dough for a skillet cookie. Bake it at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.


I challenge you to make the change from white sugar to Organic Stevia In The Raw®! You will be amazed by the no change in taste while enjoying the less calorie option of using less white sugar!
