One of my favorite desserts to enjoy after a long day is a chewy homemade chocolate chip cookie. Yet, as I get older I find myself wanting to lessen the amount of refined white sugar that I consume in my homemade baking products. I have been told that you can use a natural sugar substitute, but I was concerned about how it might change the taste of my cookies. I finally decided to give it a try anyway using Stevia. It’s a sugar alternative that is surprisingly affordable. I was pleasantly surprised at how lightweight the package was in comparison to the weight of white refined sugar.
When I returned home, I was anxious to start baking with Stevia. The results were great — I was amazed that when I used the Stevia in the recipe it did not change the taste, texture or awesomeness of my cookie! Here is the recipe I used:
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Cup Semi- Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Light Brown Sugar
1 Cup Stevia Sugar in the Raw
1 Stick of Butter (melted or softened at room temperature)
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
In a large bowl add:
Mix well with a large spoon and set aside
In a medium bowl add:
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix
Add chocolate chips
Cookie dough should form into a ball.
Cover dough and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes
Preheat oven 350*
Remove dough from refrigerator and use a ice cream scoop to place dough onto non-stick cookie sheet
Bake for 10-13 minutes
Enjoy your homemade chocolate chip cookies made with Stevia!
