What brown sweetener do you recommend using for this Protein Packed Brownie Batter Oatmeal Bake?

Lakanto Monkfruit BROWN Sweetener! It contains zero net carbs and zero calories. Perfect for any recipe that calls for brown sugar.

1:1 BROWN SUGAR REPLACEMENT: Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener matches the sweetness of brown sugar, helping you fill your kitchen with a healthy cup-for-cup alternative to ordinary baking ingredients.

In the past, I have always used Lakanto Golden sweetener as my go to brown sugar sweetener however NOW Lakanto sells a brown sugar sweetener that tastes, bakes, and looks just like regular brown sugar! That is what we recommend using in this Protein Packed Brownie Batter Oatmeal Bake.

What’s the taste difference between Lakanto Brown Sweetener and Golden Sweetener?

Brown Sweetener: Tastes like light brown sugar. Natural flavor is added which gives it the scent and subtle flavor of brown sugar.

Golden Sweetener: Hints of maple. No natural flavor added and all flavor is from monk fruit and erythritol. 

What makes Lakanto Brown Monkfruit Sweetener moist?

In order to achieve some of the same qualities of brown sugar, Brown Sweetener has vegetable glycerin in it. Our vegetable glycerin is a vegan alternative compared to other animal based glycerins. The purpose for the glycerin is to help Brown Sweetener retain moisture and allow it to pack, just like brown sugar.

I love this recipe! It reminds me of a fudgy brownie. It is surprisingly filling. The only thing I would do differently is to not add chocolate chips. I don't think they added anything. Otherwise, this was a winner.

Hi! I just made the Protein-Packed Brownie Batter Oatmeal Bake and used 2 Cups of quick oats instead of old-fashioned oats, 5 Tbsp PB & Me Chocolate powdered peanut butter instead of protein powder, added 5 Tbsp of Kodiak mix and 3 Tbsp walnuts, used a few less Lily's chocolate chips (32) and 2/3 Cup brown sugar Swerve. It's an amazing brownie-like baked oatmeal breakfast/dessert! Divided into 8 as I have an 8-piece silicone scone pan that this is perfect for. Makes 8 large, filling pieces, 3PP for me (0pt ffgy,eggs) Baked for 40 minutes. Thank you!
