As a diabetic, he really doesn’t need to eat cookies with traditional sugar. So, I did a little experiment and replaced our traditional shortbread cookie with the cookies from this recipe provided by Truvia.

Shortbread Cookie Recipe with Truvia

I’ve been invited to participate in the Truvia Lunch Makeover Challenge. Each person has been challenged to remove one traditional sweet from their lunch and replace it with a sweet made from Truvia natural sweetener. This slashes the calories found in sugar. And, it eliminates the concern of a sugar “high” that kids often experience after eating sweets. Truvia contains stevia which is an all-natural herb that’s many times sweeter than sugar is.

If you’re looking to eat foods with a lower glycemic index or are trying to lose weight or eat more naturally, definitely try Truvia in your baking. You will notice a difference in the taste but it’s worth the change!

What is Truvia?

Truvia is a sugar substitute that contains stevia, erythritol, and natural flavors. Truvia is not 100% stevia. But, it has no calories and no impact on your glycemic index.  It does not cause tooth decay or impact blood sugar. Since my husband is a diabetic, snacking on this type of snack has less impact on his blood sugar than a snack made with sugar.

Basic shortbread cookie recipe

This is a basic shortbread cookie recipe that can be modified to your taste preferences. I often add a drop of almond extract or lemon extract to the recipe to change the taste. If you’re not watching your sugar consumption, you can drizzle icing on top of these or top them with nut butter.

There is definitely a different taste to these cookies compared to cookies that use white sugar. And, there’s also a slight aftertaste. But, I don’t mind it since I use Truvia to sweeten my coffee all the time. But, it is noticeable especially to someone who has never used it before.
