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.
