If you couldn’t tell from my Monster Shake recipe, I love sweets, but they don’t always love me. Recently, I’ve come to the conclusion that regular sugars are not nice to my body and I set off to find a sugar alternative that would give me the flavor I so desired without the pain. Focus Nutrition, a healthy living company sells XyloBurst Coconut Palm Sugar for only $7.99. Coconut Palm Sugar is a great choice for those seeking an alternative sugar. It is high in potassium, magnesium, zinc, and iron and it is a natural source of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and vitamin C. After reading that I wanted to eat the entire bag because my body is low on all of those things but that is another blog article.
Coconut Palm Sugar also has a low glycemic rating of 35, which means its great for dieting or people with diabetes because it’s energy is slow released. Those with Mitochondrial Disease, like myself, also benefit from this sugar because it is slowly absorbed into the blood stream and won’t cause energy spikes that our bodies can’t handle. Yet another reason why Coconut Palm Sugar is my new favorite sugar alternative. It is also easy to use, no hard math to decide ratio’s, Coconut Palm Sugar has a 1:1 ratio meaning you can use it like you would brown sugar, or even white sugar in recipes such as the one I have for you today.
I originally saw this recipe on immaeatthat.com , and fell in love, the cookies she created looked amazing and she used coconut flour! You guy’s already know how obsessed I am with coconut flour because it doesn’t make me bloat. So thank you Kylie from immaeatthat.com for creating this recipe. My sister and I decided to modify the recipe because I can’t have regular sugar or chocolate chips. Therefore we mixed it up using Hoosier Hill Farm Carob Drops and XyloBurst Coconut Palm Sugar. Enjoy.
It is my hope that you all will try this recipe and enjoy it. If you would like to purchase Coconut Palm Sugar or even if you have a sweet tooth and like lollipops and sour candy, Focus Nutrition has what you need. Click here to be directed to their site.
