Coconut sap sugar.
Coconut palm sugar (also known as coconut sugar) is a natural sweetener made from the sap of the coconut palm flower. Like maple sugar, the coconut palm’s sap is harvested and heated until it dries into sugar crystals. This minimally processed sugar has a less intense sweetness than heavily processed white sugar, with light, toasty notes of caramel. This makes it an excellent substitute for traditional brown sugar, and it can also replace other sugars in most recipes.
Coconut palm trees grow throughout Southeast Asia, principally in the Philippines and Indonesia. A coconut palm tree can produce sap for 20 years, and can grow well in arid climates with minimal water. Coconut palms can produce more sugar per acre than sugar cane. Often, when a coconut palm tree has stopped producing coconuts (generally around the age of 50+ years old), it is "retired" to sap collection to produce coconut palm sugar.
The classic combination of peanut butter and chocolate never fails to delight. This treat is a somewhat healthier rendition, using all vegan and grain-free ingredients, as well as our Coconut Sugar, which is minimally processed and has a much lower glycemic index than refined white sugar.
