What is the difference between ordinary cookies and home-made cookies? Let’s get it right.
The most important difference is the lack of sugar in dietary recipes. Often, in classic recipes, sugar acts as a sweetener. But it is worth recalling that 100 grams of this sweet product contains about 400 calories! And in one glass of sugar as much as 200 grams! Judge for yourself how many extra empty calories you get by eating regular cookies. In healthy recipes, we replace sugar with a natural sweetener. This is honey, maple syrup, agave syrup, stevia. Thus, you can significantly reduce the calorie content of an already prepared dish.Continue reading
