Guide to using coconut sugar in baking for healthier, sustainable and unique flavor and texture.
Coconut sugar is a natural sweetener made from coconut palm tree sap.
It has a caramel-like flavor and is rich in minerals like iron, zinc, calcium, and potassium.
It has a lower glycemic index than regular sugar and is vegan-friendly and sustainable.
It can be substituted for white or brown sugar in recipes on a 1:1 basis.
When baking with coconut sugar, allow it to dissolve in liquids and cream it with butter to avoid a speckled look.
