How to Make These Cupcakes Sweet

To make these cupcakes sweet, you use erythritol. Erythritol is an all-natural sweetener that won’t spike your blood sugars.

It is also one of the best sweeteners on the market right now. So, if you plan to do more low carb baking, you can find some erythritol here.

Now, this recipe calls for half a cup of erythritol. However, if you’re new to low carb diets, you might want to use 1 cup because the cupcakes might not be sweet enough otherwise.
