  • 1 cup Stevia, Granulated (Lakanto Monkfruit, Pyure or other low-carb sweetener)
  • 1/2 tsp Blackstrap Molasses


  • In a small mixing bowl, combine erythritol and black strap molasses with a back of a spoon (or fork) until thoroughly mixed and sugar is tinted light brown. The color should be similar to the color of brown sugar.
  • Start by using only half of the amount of the low-carb brown sugar substitute as you would in your recipes.
  • Store any leftover low-carb brown sugar in an air tight, food safe container (like a mason jar).
