I found a replacement for sugar early into my keto & low carb journey, but brown sugar was one of those things that were more difficult to find. In baking and sauces like this Keto Brown Butter Salted Caramel, brown sugar adds a depth of flavor that just really cannot be substituted.
I found out about Sukrin Gold, like most keto-friendly substitutes, on Instagram. Since getting my first bag of Sukrin Gold, I’ve used it in a ton of keto & low carb dessert recipes!
How does Sukrin Gold compare to regular brown sugar?
Sukrin Gold tastes just like traditional brown sugar. The only difference is that it doesn’t have calories, is low carb and keto-friendly.
This product does not impact my blood sugar. I substitute this product 1:1 in recipes that call for brown sugar.
What’s in this Keto Browned Butter Salted Caramel?
This recipe is one of my favorites because it’s super simple to make and contains only 5 ingredients. I include pink sea salt, heavy cream, vanilla extract, and Sukrin Gold.
Are there other options for brown sugar substitutes?
The only other option that I’ve tried is this one.
How do I store this?
I store this in the refrigerator in a glass jar. Glass jars are microwave safe and keep foods fresh longer.
My Keto Browned Salted Caramel turned into a solid! Help!
Since this is made with a sugar alternative, it’s common for this to turn into a solid the next day! To make this pourable again, you simply need to heat it in its glass jar for 15-20 seconds in the microwave.
