One of the very first recipes I wrote down was this Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, painstakingly copied from an Aunt’s handwritten copy. For a long time it was the ONLY recipe I would use but like everything in life, it eventually needed a makeover. Enter my new and IMPROVED Chocolate Chip Cookies with Coconut Sugar!
Lantic Coconut Sugar can be used in place of brown sugar in all your favourite recipes and the results in these Chocolate Chip Cookies were amazing. I quietly made them without telling my girls I was adding a new twist to one of their favourites. The result? Two dozen cookies decimated in less than 24 hours. To be fair, their father helped. A lot.
Coconut sugar is 100% natural and doesn’t contain any artificial flavours and preservatives. It is also not chemically altered in any way, which is something that makes me feel good about using it. Coconut sugar has a rich caramel note, which could be why my oldest daughter thought these Chocolate Chip Cookies tasted like turtles.
Don’t rely on Lantic & Rogers Coconut Sugar just for baking though. It’s also delicious in coffee and tea (Remember! Rich caramel flavour! YUM!), and it’s equally delicious in chocolate desserts and Asian dishes.
I found Lantic & Rogers Coconut Sugar at my local Superstore, alongside the new Lantic Sugar + Stevia Blend. I’m eager to try it too since it has 50% fewer calories than sugar, so I can literally bake my cake and eat it too. Like the Lantic & Rogers Coconut Sugar, the Lantic & Rogers Sugar + Stevia Blend uses only all natural ingredients —no fillers, artificial sweeteners, preservatives or chemicals!
