I've mentioned a time or two before that my husband isn't big on sweets… But the one dessert that he asks for every time is brownies! Brownies every week can really pack on the calories if you're not careful…
BUT I've found a delicious substitute for the sugar I put in my homemade brownies! A substitute that has ZERO calories and tastes just like the real thing… NECTRESSE™Sweetener!
Nectresse sweetener is the only 100% natural sweetener made from fruit that is available in my local grocery store! It's made from the monk fruit extract, a small green melon that grows in mountain regions throughout Asia.
To make your own Chocolate Fudge Brownies using Nectresse sweetener in place of granulated sugar, you can use the following recipe…
1 1/4 cups melted margarine
2 cups of sugar1/2 cup of Nectresse Sweetener
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup cocoa
Mix all ingredients and press into a glass baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
You'll notice I replaced 2 cups of sugar with only a half cup of the Nectresse…. That's because the sweetness of Nectresse in a 1/4 teaspoon equals the sweetness of a whole teaspoon of regular sugar!
I used less of the Nectresse sweetener than I would have if I used sugar and the hubs couldn't even tell the difference in his favorite dessert! I loved that the brownies tasted just as delicious as always, but with less calories than normal! Win-win!!!
