I love to bake. My family loves my baking so I am always torn because substitutes, while some are okay, most don't translate well in baking. (I am a textural person) Have you ever tried to cream your powdery substitute with butter? Yuck.

Anyway, today I was shopping for a few things and I came across this new product called Domino Light-all natural sugar and stevia blend. YEAH!!!

You use 1/2 the amount you would of sugar in your recipes.

Nutritional Facts:
Serving size 1/2 teaspoon
Calories: 5
Carbohydrates: 2g
Ingredients:
Sugar, Stevia & Natural Flavors (don't know why they need that?)

While this is not carb FREE nor calorie FREE, it is all natural and for that I am thrilled. Now if I can just get the use of gluten free flours down, I will be even happier.

Have any of you seen or used this before? I have not tried it yet, but I am planning to make some cookies with this for my sweetener and use half and half almond four and wheat flour. Carbs are going down. LOL

I have not seen it in individual packets. I am glad to find it in bulk bags. That is an easier way to use it for cooking. I have in the past used my Truvia packets and ripped each one open into my measuring cup...what a pain. LOL

I have not tried this, however I do use a similar product called, "Sweet Leaf, sugar leaf". It is a 100% natural mix of SweetLeaf Stevia and Pure raw cane sugar. It does not have any "natural flavors" added. It lists 1/3 tsp. as a serving and has 5 calories and 1.2g carbs per serving. It is quite expensive at $7.79 for a 1 pound bag. I buy this at my local health food store. I use a bit in my coffee because it was the only product I found that I liked. However, I have also discovered the liquid Stevia drops which I prefer over the stevia powdered packets. I have not even thought of making cookies, now I can't wait to get home (again, I am at work!!) and try it out. I never noticed before, but there is also a recipe on the back for a cheesecake using this that looks delish! Let me know how your cookies turn out.

This is $5.99 for two pounds, which they say is equal to 4 pounds. I used some in my canning today and it tasted great. I made pickled cauliflower and carrots and I used half the amount in the recipe and it worked great. I am excited about it.
