Celebrate National Children’s Dental Health Month With XyloSweet

This past Valentine’s Day I  baked Chocolate Chip Cookies with my little one. This time I used XyloSweet®, a xylitol-based sweetener, is the sweetest of all bulk sugar substitutes. I felt comfortable subsiting sugar for XyloSweet®  because it may reduce the risk of tooth decay! I was sent a sample of XyloSweet® in honor of National Children’s Dental Health Month. Below is a recipe that I followed using XyloSweet! I totally recommend you try it too.

Mix:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup xylitol
  • 2 TBSP unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup plus 2 TBSP spelt flour or whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 ounces maltitol sweetened dark chocolate bars, chopped

Combine: In large bowl, cream butter with xylitol until fluffy. Gradually add applesauce during creaming process. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually stir flour mixture into batter, and fold in chocolate. Drop 1/2 TBSP of dough for each cookie onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown. Cookies are soft when taken from the oven, but become firm when stored overnight.

Yield: 3 1/2 dozen cookies.
