I couldn’t wait to try out Swerve sweetener in a recipe! Swerve is a sugar-replacement that is all natural and perfect for anyone watching their sugar intake. I was introduced to Swerve sweetener at BlogHer Food in Miami this year. The Swerve rep had a lot of different goodies to sample, my favorite being the gluten-free pastries. They were really good, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a bag to play around with in my kitchen. I love that Swerve is non-gylcemic, natural, calorie-free and non-GMO. It sounds too good to be true, right?! I’m infatuated with this new sugar-replacement in my pantry. Baked goods will never be the same. Now, you can have my dessert and eat a mess of it, too! 😉
Of course, if you can’t get your hands on this sugar-replacement you can always use stevia, maple sugar or coconut sugar as a replacement.
