Fibrelle Sweetener + a giveaway!





What if I told you that you could bake all your favorite recipes and cut down the calories while adding fiber too.  Have you heard of Fibrelle?  Fibrelle is a fiber rich sweetener that reduces calories, promotes digestive health, and helps manage blood glucose too.  It's the perfect substitute for sugar! 





When I was first contacted from Fibrelle, I kept thinking about a recipe I could come up with to do for the review.  However, after awhile I thought, why not just bake everyday recipes and see how it works.  So I started whipping some up and I was very surprised at the results!

The first thing I made was chocolate chip cookies.  They turned out perfectly!  They were crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside and baked up beautifully too!


Then I tried banana bread and got the same result.  The bread baked up nice and high, brown on the outside while the texture on the inside was moist and a little crumbly.


I also made a pound cake and had great results.  It baked up nice and high, golden brown around the edges and dense inside.


I never told my family that I substituted Fibrelle for the regular sugar.  They ate everything I made and not one of them said that something tasted different.  This leaves no aftertaste and you can't tell the difference at all!  

Fibrelle offers a lot of great benefits as well.  One tablespoon has only 15 calories and 7 grams of fiber!  It will activate yeast, caramelize, and brown just like sugar.  It also has the same density as sugar so the substitution is cup for cup.  All your baked goods will bake up beautiful...you can see from my pictures! 

Fibrelle has a ton of information on their website so please stop over and take a look.   They were kind enough to offer not one, but two of you a sample as well.  You'll also receive a wonderful information sheet that explains why Fibrelle is the "Healthiest & Tastiest Sweetener Ever!"  

All you have to do is leave a comment letting me know what you would make with Fibrelle.   Contest Closed!

  7. Lisa,
    I am a new follower of your blog--Love it!!! Thanks for telling us about this new sweetner, I am always searching for the perfect one to bake with. I would make Buttermilk Pie first with it. I've been craving it lately but really have to watch my sugar intake. I would love to try Fibrelle! I have been using xylitol, but it has 10 calories per teaspoon (30 per TBSpoon)which is more than the Fibrelle. Your baking results looked great!

  10. My kids love chocolate chip cookies. I've often substituted 1/2 whole wheat flour to sneak in some extra fiber, but I'd like to try this as well! Sounds amazing!
