Yummy Mummy’s Tip:

I have discovered that I am gluten intolerant and therefore coconut flour is used here. Alternative can be other kinds of nut flour such as almond flour. Not to mention that it’s healthier than normal flour as it’s higher in fibre, protein and healthy fats.

Coconut sugar contains more mineral and nutrients to white refined sugar and raw sugar. It also is lower in Glycemic Index (GI) – releases energy slower into the blood stream. However, it still contains around 39%  fructose not that much different to the other types of sugar.  Only liver cells break down fructose and it can’t be used for energy by our cells. Therefore, it can lead to problems with our liver, as the job of the liver is to get rid of it mainly by transforming it into fat.  It also has stronger taste which means we can use less to sweeten food. After all and in my view, I think less is better! 

Stevia is a plant original from S. America that is naturally very sweet in flavour and contains zero calories and becoming increasingly popular as a sugar replacement. It is very potent in taste so just a tiny amount would work wonder. Some powdered versions are mixed with other artificial sweeteners so I would choose the most natural form like a liquid extract.
