But you can only have so many sugar cookies and that is why I am sharing this easy coconut macaroons recipe today!

Stevia In The Raw Bakers Bag>

Instead of using sweetened condensed milk to make these easy coconut macaroons, I used half granulated sugar and half  Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag.

Stevia In The Raw® is a zero-calorie sweetener that contains extracts from the sweet leaves of the stevia plant. It is perfect for any baking and cooking needs. For every cup of sugar in a recipe that is swapped out for Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag, you can save up to 700 calories!

Since Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag measures cup for cup like sugar, it can easily be used in any of your favorite holiday baking recipes to reduce sugar and calories. It is formulated so that 1 cup has the same sweetness as 1 cup of sugar. Keep in mind that when using Stevia In The Raw® for baking recipes, only replace about half the sugar in order to achieve the proper browning, rising and caramelizing that only sugar can provide.
