I was making a batch of chocolate chip cookies and trying to convert the recipe to be more healthy. I already substituted whole wheat flour for the white flour, but was trying to figure out what to do about the brown sugar. I substituted some organic cane sugar for the granulated sugar, but wasn’t sure what to do with the brown sugar. I did a search on the internet and came up with a recipe to make your own brown sugar! Here is the recipe:
HOMEMADE BROWN SUGAR
To make homemade brown sugar, mix the following together:
- 1 cup granulated sugar (I used the organic cane sugar)
- 1-2 Tablespoons molasses (adjust this to your taste)
It is that easy…and it works!
You can either mix this ahead of time and store it in a container, or just dump the sugar and molasses into the recipe. That is what I did with the cookies I was making and they turned out great!
