New England Cornbread #Recipe

Disclosure:  I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Monk Fruit In The Raw. I received product samples to facilitate my post as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

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.

I have been very surprised with the Monk Fruit In The Raw products and have found myself using the very convenient individual packets for my morning tea and coffee.  The sweetener tastes like sugar!  There isn't a chemical taste at all, which makes me very comfortable with baking and cooking with this sweetener for my kids.  Monk Fruit In The Raw comes in the packets and also a Bakers Bag that you can use instead of sugar in any of your favorite recipes.  Simply measure cup for cup and you are set!  For some culinary tips and inspiration make sure you head on over to the Monk Fruit In The Raw website and you will be in the kitchen in no time.  

Did you know that September is Childhood obesity month?  While I have dealt with my weight for my entire life I truly want my children to have a different start.  Finding products like Monk Fruit In The Raw helps me keep my children on track but still enjoying those treats.  Finding ways to cut the extra sugar but still enjoy the good stuff and for me the baking itself makes this a great sweetener to have in our kitchen.

  1. Gosh, this looks delicious - I will try to make this next time I make Chili for the family.

  2. 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!

  3. Cornbread was a staple in our house growing up - i dont eat is as often but i still love it! This recipe sounds delish!

  4. Mmmm . . . now I need to make some chili and pair it with this corn bread!

  5. This looks yummy. I will have to try it. Thanks.

  6. 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.
