Recommends: Smart Baking Company
Sugar. It’s such a sneaky little thing that amounts to quite a big thing in the diets of most Americans. As a whole, Americans consume way more sugar than we should. Men should have no more than 9 teaspoons a day and women should have no more than 6 teaspoons, yet the average American consumes about 22 teaspoons a day!
If you have a sweet tooth or you like baked goods but you don’t want to be part of the 22-teaspoons-a-day group, then you should turn to companies that make an effort to limit the sugar in their products or use non-glycemic or low-glycemic sweeteners. One such company is Smart Baking Company.
Smart Baking Company makes delicious cakes, called Smartcakes, and tasty burger buns, called Smartbuns. What makes them smart? They contain monk fruit extract and erythritol, rather than sugar, so they are sweet yet diabetic friendly. They don’t contain any artificial coloring, dyes, or flavors. They are free from MSG, GMOs, nuts (with the exception of coconut in one variety), and gluten. They are also keto-friendly, with 16 grams of carbs in the Smartbuns and 9 grams in the Smartcakes (yet they both have zero net carbs, because fiber and erythritol are the sources of carbs, which are not recognized by the body as carbs).
Now that you know why they’re smart, let’s talk taste.
The Smartcakes are delicious and come in a variety of flavors – Chocolate, Cinnamon, Raspberry Cream, Lemon, and Orange Cream. My grandkids are obsessed with the Smartcakes and they are mother-approved, so I don’t have to feel bad keeping them on hand as treats!
The Smartbuns come in Plain and Sesame and are perfect for burgers, pulled pork sandwiches, veggie burgers, and more. They taste like what I remember gluten-filled buns tasting like! I suggest trying their variety pack to get a taste of both the Smartcakes and Smartbuns.
