Made with KetoseSweet
This is a sponsored post and all opinions are my own. I entered this recipe for Swedish Sandwich Cookies in the KetoseSweet Recipe Challenge. I received one 16 oz. package of KetoseSweet and one 23 oz bottle liquid KetoseSweet. With the holidays fast approaching, I decided to submit a recipe for Christmas cookies using KetoseSweet. KetoseSweet is an all natural Allulose, Monk Fruit & Stevia Blend.
What Exactly is KetoseSweet
KetoseSweet contains allulose, a rare natural sugar found in maple syrup, figs and raisins. It’s safe, low-calorie, low-glycemic sweetener, with just 5% of the calories of regular sugar. It delivers familiar taste and texture without affecting blood sugar levels and it’s free from aftertaste and bitterness. Safe for those following a low-sugar or low-carb diet. It’s Keto and Paleo friendly and Diabetic safe.
Use Your Favorite Jam
You can substitute raspberry, strawberry, blueberry or your favorite jam flavor. We happened to have Lingonberry jam in our pantry, no doubt from a recent trip to IKEA. Want to try something a little different? Substitute lemon or lime curd. Even a smear of fig preserves or Nutella would be a nice change of pace from the usual jam choices. So Good!!
Sugar Filled Holidays
Often the holidays are filled with many sugary sweets. Why not cut a few calories this holiday season and use KetoseSweet in recipes containing regular sugar. Anyone on a special diet, watching their weight or people with diabetes, will be happy to have a delicious cookie or two to indulge in. Even Santa Claus needs to watch his sugar intake during the holidays. After all, he has to eat a lot of cookies on his world travels.
