How To Use Swerve In Baking
Remember – Swerve measures out cup for cup just like sugar, so you don’t have to worry about doing any crazy math to figure out how to use it in your recipes.
This makes using Swerve Sweetener in baking super easy becasue you don’t have to remember how to convert it.
Dissolve or work Swerve Sweetener into the recipe just like you would regular sugar.
To prevent crystallization, keep the baked goods at room temperature and eat them up the day they were baked if at all possible.
If you find your baked goods taste dry due to the erythritol in the sweetener, incorporate applesauce, pumpkin puree, or mashed bananas into your recipes to add some extra moisture.
One of my favorite banana bread recipes is made with applesauce.
What Is Swerve Sweetener Made Out Of
According to the Swerve website, the sweetener is made out of erythritol, oligosaccharides, and natural flavors.
Best of all, these all natural ingredients are sourced from the United States and France.
In a nutshell, erythritol is made by fermenting glucose from non-GMO corn with Moniliella pollinis, which is a yeast-like fungus.
The process is similar to the way alcohol such as beer or wine is made.
Oligosaccharides are sweet-tasting carbohydrates found naturally in fruits and starchy vegetables.
The oligosaccharides in Swerve Sweetener are made by adding enzymes to starchy root vegetables, however they do not say which vegetables or enzymes they use.
The natural flavor comes from citrus according to the Swerve Sweetener website, but there are no additional details mentioned.
Banana Bread For Diabetics
Swerve Sweetener doesn’t have any calories or net carbs, it is also certified non-GMO, which is one reason why people switch to Swerve.
Best of all, it doesn’t raise your blood sugar levels which is important any time you make something such as this banana bread recipe for someone who is diabetic.
Best of all, this diabetic friendly recipe is one that even those who don’t need to control their blood sugar will love.
