Valentine’s Day is right around the corner – and it’s even on a Friday, making it easy to set aside some time with your special someone and celebrate. We’ll be celebrating Friday evening with our three special someones – we’re having a Valentine’s “party” with the kids, complete with heart-shaped hamburgers and hot dogs (can you tell they picked the menu?). No party is complete without sweets, though, right? Well, amidst all the sugar floating around right now (chocolate and lollipops and conversation hearts, oh my!), SPLENDA offers us a way to bake treats without all the added calories from sugar.
Have you ever baked with SPLENDA? It can be used almost anywhere sugar is used, and measures cup-for-cup like sugar. It contains 678 less calories than sugar on a cup-for-cup basis. So you can go ahead and bake those brownies or cookies and know that you’re giving your loved ones something delicious with many less calories!
One of Brian’s favorite cookies is a peanut butter cookie with a peanut butter cup in the middle, so that might be a perfect treat for me to make for the family! Here’s a link to the cookie recipe – just replace the sugar with SPLENDA to greatly reduce the amount of calories in these cookies!
So go ahead and run to the store for ingredients – I’ve even got a link for a “$1 off any SPLENDA product” coupon you can use! Just go to HealthyEssentials.com to find your coupon. HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® is offering amazing printable coupons, tips & tools and so much more for all the products you and your family love. You can get significant savings on much more than SPLENDA by visiting the HEALTHY ESSENTIALS website in February and signing up for extra-sweet HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® coupons and offers.
