Sweet Brown Recipe
Prep time
Total time
This delicious sugar free brown sugar recipe sub is affordable, so-super-simple, and best of all, it tastes and smells amazing! Yes, it's got a teensy tinesy amount of sugar in the blackstrap molasses. If you eat the entire cup of granules *bless your heart* you'll get 3 carbs and 12½ calories from the sugar. Most of us will get far less than that per serving size.
Recipe type: Ingredients
  • 1 cup sugar free sweetener of your choice, like erythritol or xylitol
  • ¾ teaspoon molasses, blackstrap is preferred*
  • 2-4 drops extract of your choice: butterscotch, maple, or rum
  1. Measure your sugar sub into a small jar
  2. Add molasses and flavorings, and blend with a fork until evenly distributed.
  3. Use in your favorite recipes as a 1:1 substitute for the base sweetener you used.
*blackstrap molasses contains more nutrients and minerals than other types.

Xylitol does contain calories, and is toxic to dogs. It's also slightly sweeter than erythritol and can be used 1:1 with table sugar in recipes.
You may try adding in a ¼-1/2 t. of stevia extract for a 'Truvia' brown sugar blend. This will adjust the sweetness up a bit if using erythritol.
