Monk Fruit-Sweetened Dessert
These zucchini muffins are sweetened with my favorite keto-friendly product, Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener. I use monk fruit sweetener in virtually all of my dessert, baked good, and fat bomb recipes as it is net-carb-free, calorie-free, and tastes just like sugar!
If you are unfamiliar with monk fruit sweetener, it is a great sugar substitute that is naturally-occurring, unlike many other calorie-free sweeteners like sucralose and aspartame.
The sweetness of monk fruit sweetener comes from mogrosides, a chemical compound, rather than fructose or sucrose, which is where the sweeteness in cane sugar stems from.
Monk fruit sweetener doesn’t spike blood sugar and is safe to consume for those with diabetes or candida. If you follow a low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet, monk fruit sweetener is a pantry-necessity!
If you are looking for a sweetener that is keto-friendly, vegan, and paleo-compliant, I highly recommend trying Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener! You can use code “REALBALANCED” for 20% off your total order!
