      Hi Patti, we don't sell any sugar substitutes but I would recommend seeking out ones that are specifically formulated for baking purposes.

    Swerve sugar replacement is a wonderful sugar substitute for baking. It also comes in confection and brown sugar replacement. It is not at all bitter and takes just like sugar.

    I tried the Cassava Brownies on the Cassava flour bag and I was pleasantly surprised. They had great texture and tasted really good. I do not like rice flour substitutes because of the texture, the Cassava did not have that.
