Ideal No Calorie White and Brown Sweetener Review

My mom has tried to get me to switch from regular sugar to Ideal sweetener for awhile now. She said that you couldn’t tell the difference and that I wouldn’t even notice that I wasn’t using regular sugar. When Ideal asked me to review their White and Brown Sweetener,  I jumped at the chance. The kids and I went on the Ideal Website and started looking for recipes we could make. Of course the kids picked chocolate chip cookies. (See Recipe Below). I thought for sure their would be a difference in the amount of Ideal you use compared to sugar but their isn’t. Ideal Sweetener measures cup for cup like sugar.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/4 c all-purpose our
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 c light, unsalted butter, softened
1 c Ideal®
No Calorie Sweetener
1 c Ideal®
Brown
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 c semisweet chocolate chips
Ingredients-US Standard
Directions
1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
2. Combine our, salt, and baking soda in a small bowl.
3. Cream together butter, Ideal®
and Ideal®
Brown.
4. Add vanilla and mix until creamy; add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
5. Gradually beat in our mixture; stir in chocolate chips.
6. Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
7. Tap lightly with ngers so that dough does not remain in ball form (so cookies will bake through
and be atter after baking).
8. Bake 8 to 9 minutes until golden around edges.
9. Let rest 2 minutes and remove to cooling racks

The cookies were very moist and you could not tell that they were not made with white and brown sugar. The Kids said that they were the best cookies they ever made. The cookies didn’t flatten out like regular cookies do but instead stayed the shape when we put them on the cookie sheet. Ideal Sweetener is definitely going to be used in our up coming holiday baking this year. It will help cut out some of the calories that we will be consuming between now and New Year’s!
