If you love sweet foods, and bake your own, then organic coconut sugar is a far healthier alternative to any of the processed sugars.

It is a natural sugar made from the sap of the coconut tree, and is pure and unprocessed.

It does not taste at all like coconut.

I find that, in baking, it is not as sweet as the normal processed sugars however, it still has calories, so I do not increase the quantity.

Coconut sugar caramelises well and is great for things like brownies.

It is brown and looks something like brown sugar, and is safe as a diabetic sugar.

I would not use it in a pavlova, however I use it in most other cooking to satisfy my own sweet tooth.

It is more expensive than processed sugars but well worth the extra cost to have a healthier alternative!

I have found a place that sells it loose (not in a packet) and it is far cheaper to buy it this way -for Perth people -Kakulus Sisters - for others, try a shop or health food store that sells loose, bulk quantities and not a supermarket.
