Sugar free that tastes like sugar? Yes, please!
Ok so I will seriously try anything to make recipes a little healthier. I recently discovered Yacon Syrup! It’s my new secret weapon! You can use it instead of your normal sugar or sugar substitute… and the best part—it actually tastes good! In fact, we tried it in oatmeal this morning and it actually tasted better than brown sugar. It wasn’t as sickeningly sweet, but it had a sweet taste too it!
