Review/Giveaway: Granulated Splenda with Fiber Prize Pack


We typically use sweetners in our coffee and iced tea just so we can lessen the calories that regular sugar imparts.  When a PR rep for Splenda approached me undertake a review of their Splenda with Fiber, Granulated I jumped at the chance.  I never really thought about using Splenda in my baking or cooking, also as we lead busy lives I'm sure we don't get enough fiber in our diet.  Did you know the average adult should get 25 grams of fiber per day, but only gets about 12-13 grams.

To aid my review I was sent a bag of Splenda with Fiber, Granulated plus a Cookie Master™ Plus Cordless Cookie Press.  I typically bake cookies using cookie mixes which I score for free with coupons, so I was excited to challenge myself not only with making cookies from scratch but actually using a cookie press.  My husband's Godmother makes Spritz cookies every Christmas and we adore them. 
Being the daughter of two chefs I'm a natural cook but unfortunately my baking side was never nutured.  Baking is a lot harder because you have to follow the recipe exactly.  For me I cook without a recipe and its all done by taste and trial and error.  Here's my cookies made using Splenda with Fiber, Granulated.


My husband and children were my guinea pigs and all were impressed with the cookies both aesthetically and with its taste.  I mentioned to my husband that the cookies were made with Splenda with Fiber, Granulated and he said "Oh thats why they don't taste like my Godmothers cookies".  So I made another batch with regular cane sugar and asked my husband to try them out and he said "yes can still taste the Splenda" - thank goodness for blind taste test trials ; ).  With the Holiday season in full swing grab a bag while at the store and see whether your family can tell the difference.

Here are some fun recipes to try
