I'm careful of what I eat especially sweets because I don't want my blood sugar to go up. I was told by the doctor a few years ago that my blood sugar was high. I also read that sugar feeds cancer and since I am a cancer survivor, I am cautious of my sugar intake. If I use sugar, I prefer the natural sweeter. Boy, was I glad to know about the NECTRESSE™Sweetener that was sent to me to try! This product is made from the goodness of real fruit - monk fruit extract, available where you shop! It is 100 percent natural and zero calories per serving too! I really like the taste of this sweetener more than any other sweeteners out there. Instead of using sugar in my favorite apple pancake, I used the Nectresse Sweetener to give me an all natural sweet taste without all the calories of sugar. It was the perfect substitute for sugar and I loved that I didn't need to use that much! My hubby loved it and so did I. Here' the recipe I made using Nectresse.
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded tart apple
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon NECTRESSE™ Sweetener
1. In a large bowl, combine butter, egg, milk and apple. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar. Stir flour mixture into apple mixture, just until combined.
2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
These pancakes are so delicious, yummy, moist and nutritious.
