Recipe Notes

Note: This recipe uses monkfruit sweetener, which is considered to be a low-carb and Keto-friendly sweetener. It has no calories, no fat, and just 4 carbs per 1 tsp.

I was unable to add the carbs to this recipe so just consider that 2/3 cup is 32 tsp. That add just 16 carbs per serving for this recipe that isn't calculated in the total. 

You can substitute your favorite sweetener for the monkfruit, such as organic cane sugar, coconut sugar, etc. I find that monkfruit is a 1:1 with regular sugar and has the same flavor.
