    Default Baking with sugar substitutes

    I have 2 family members who cannot have sugar but love cookies. I am considering making them some using a substitute but wonder if it is worth the effort. Any suggestions?

    Use stevia and it will be fine. I bake with it all the time.

    We've used that, too, and I think it works okay. I think it's the most common sugar substitute used for baking.

    Stevia is as close to sugar as you can get imo. I think it tastes a little sweeter than though so you may want to cut back what the recipe calls for.

    Exactly the same with Splenda. You can google recipes for either.

    I like xylitol best. It looks, tastes and bakes like sugar. It's made from corn usually and I use a non-GMO brand.

    if i even smell that stuff, or its equally evil cousin sorbitol, it's straight to the bathroom for me, plus hours of horrible, painful gas and bloating. fun times.

    Yes, xylitol is a sugar alcohol with that nasty side effect for some people. Fortunately, I have a cast iron stomach. Not even that gross olestra fat substitute that came out in the 90s fucked up my gut. My friends would eat one measly potato chip and then be stuck on the toilet for half a day. As for me - nada! I'm not sure that's a good thing though.

    I use Stevia. There is not much of a difference from the actual sugar. So, no need to worry.
