I use 2-3 teaspoons a day to sweeten my coconut or almond milk, to drizzle on my oatmeal or to spread on bread. Another option is to make some granola with a mixture of stevia and blacktrap molasses adding some warm flavors to welcome Fall :), so here's the recipe:
Low Sugar Blackstrap Granola
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Keywords: bake breakfast dessert snack gluten-free soy-free vegetarian vegan oats blackstrap molasses stevia flax seeds
Ingredients (8 servings)
- 2 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1 cup reduced fat unsweetened coconut, finely shredded (I used Let's Do...Organic)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon powder
- 4 tablespoons ground flax seeds mixed with 12 tablespoons of water
- 2 tablespoons Blackstrap Molasses (I used Plantation brand)
- 1/2 teaspoon liquid stevia extract (or 12 packets)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
Let the ground flax seeds and water rest for 5 minutes or microwave for 30 seconds, until it becomes gooey.
In a large bowl mix the oats, coconut, salt and cinnamon.
In a small bowl combine the flax seed mixture, molasses, stevia and vanilla extract.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.
Spread the granola in a flat layer.
Bake for 20-25 minutes stirring every 10 minutes.
Let it cool before storing in an airtight container.**You can add nuts, seeds or raisins but they will increase the calorie and/or sugar levels**
