Making Healthy Choices with Splenda {Black Bottom Cupcakes}


Disclosure: This post is part of the SPLENDA® 365 SWEET SWAPS ™ blogger program by McNeil Nutritionals, LLC. and The Motherhood, who sent me products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are my own, and I hope you enjoy them.

We are working as a family to get healthier in 2014, so I was thrilled to be apart of a campaign for SPLENDA® Brand where we are replacing our sugar with Splenda to show our readers just how easy it is!   One of our favorite recipes is black bottom cupcakes so we thought it would be a great recipe to swap the sugar for Splenda Blend and try them that way.  This recipe did not disappoint!

The Splenda products include conversion charts on the back of each package. This makes it SO easy to make the changes to your recipes that include sugar.  You just swap the sugar with splenda and you don’t have to think about the measurements.

When you’re prepping a recipe that calls for sugar, reduce the amount you use by swapping added sugar for SPLENDA® Sweetener Products such as SPLENDA® Sugar Blend.
