I have a problem. It’s a P28 White Chocolate Peanut Butter problem. It’s so delicious, I can’t stop eating it. I want it all over my body. Okay, well maybe I just want to eat it.
P28 has a link on their page for Menu Ideas. I decided to check it out, hungry for new ways to use my new
drug, healthy spread. That’s when I found the lovely words: P28 White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies. I even had all the ingredients on hand except the coconut sugar! I have not used coconut sugar before, but I’m a big fan of it now!
What the heck is coconut sugar?
According to AuthorityNutrition.com:
Coconut sugar is also called Coconut Palm Sugar.
It is a natural sugar made from sap, which is the sugary circulating fluid of the coconut plant. It is often confused with Palm Sugar, which is similar but made from a different type of palm tree.
Coconut sugar is made in a natural 2-step process:
- A cut is made on the flower of the coconut palm and the liquid sap is collected into containers.
- The sap is placed under heat until most of the water has evaporated.
I did not find much solid evidence about the nutritional qualities of coconut sugar, but some sources say that has a lower GI index and that it retains some of the vitamins and minerals from the coconut itself. The calories and carbohydrate amounts are very similar to pure cane sugar though.
