Recently, we had a potluck to attend and I was trying to figure out a different dish to take instead of the tradition super sweet desserts. As a family we have been trying to cut out high sugar treats and desserts but that isn’t easy, so I was really excited to try a different zero-calorie sweetener called Monk Fruit In The Raw.
Monk Fruit In The Raw is a wholesome, zero-calorie sweetener that is made with real fruit and has a simple, sweet taste that can be used in any recipe that calls for sugar. This is perfect for our family. We are trying to cut added sugars but we do not want to sacrifice any taste!! And let’s be real, I love to bake, especially this time of the year.
I started looking for some wholesome yummy treats for our Potluck and I decided to try my growing baking skills by making some New England Cornbread using the Monk Fruit In The Raw sweetener instead of sugar. I have to say, it was a HIT and I guarantee my family will be asking for me to whip this recipe up again very soon.

Gosh, this looks delicious – I will try to make this next time I make Chili for the family.
I've never heard of this sweetener, but it sure would get used up in my house. I love baking, but I've been looking for other sweeteners to use in place of granulated sugar. And by the way, that cornbread looks so good!
Cornbread was a staple in our house growing up – i dont eat is as often but i still love it! This recipe sounds delish!

I fix cornbread at least 2 times per week. I pinned this recipe so I would not loose it so I can try it out on my family.
