Replacement for Brown Sugar...

Anyone have a tried and true favorite? I just don't want to spend $20 on a product with such mixed reviews. (Just Like Sugar Brown)

What do you currently have? Some people have found that mixing a Tablespoon of unsulphured molasses into their current granular sweetener gives them the brown sugar they need. If you have xylitol or erythritol, just add the molasses to that and use it like brown sugar. That's essentially what it is to begin with , refined sugar blended with the removed dark syrup solids.

I like coconut sugar in place of brown sugar for baking. Not technically low carb, but low glycemic. (GI of 35, GL of 1.4)

Be careful when you buy it, some brands come mixed with cane sugar.

I use Splenda Brown sugar blend. It's not totally carb free, but as long as you don't use much of it in a recipe, it works. I am super sensitive to sugars, but I seem to be able to get away with this without reacting. It's also a whole lot cheaper!

I like Ideal Brown. I used to be able to find it at Kroger but they stopped carrying it. Netrition still carries it. I also like LC Food Corp's Sweet Brown, but only for baked goods. Don't like it so much for cooking.
