THE BEST REFINED SUGAR-FREE STICKY SWEETENERS
- Maple Syrup– When not keeping recipes 100% sugar-free, I love using pure maple syrup. It’s easy to come across and doesn’t have an overpowering taste.
- Brown Rice Syrup– For the best texture, brown rice syrup will always win hands down. It’s super sticky, yet doesn’t have an obvious flavor or overt sweetness.
- Agave Nectar– Similar to maple syrup, agave nectar is a great option.
- Honey– Strict vegans shouldn’t use this, but honey also works great. It is a little overpowering in flavor, but I personally love the honey and coconut combination.
- 1 cup blanched almond flour
- 3 cups finely shredded unsweetened coconut
- 3/4 cup sticky sweetener of choice I used a monk fruit sweetener
- 1/4 cup coconut milk can sub any liquid of choice
- In a high-speed blender, food processor, or mixing bowl, combine your ingredients and blend until a dough is formed. If the batter is too crumbly, add extra coconut milk until a slightly sticky texture remains.
