Chocolate Chip S’mores Cookies that’s lower in calories and uses less sugar but still tastes as amazing……
There’s nothing that could get my family more excited than smelling something baking in the kitchen. We all love cakes, cookies, cheesecakes, cupcakes — anything that is sweet and spells d-e-s-s-e-r-t.
Just like any other Filipino household, as per the 2013 Food Consumption Survey by FNRI-DOST, sugar is also one of the most consumed food products here at home… that’s especially because we love coffee (peanutbutter♥ and I drink 2-3 times per day) and because I bake a lot. I also use sugar in cooking specially on marinades.
I know that we were consuming a lot of sugars so earlier this year, I vowed to make an effort to cook healthier meals for our family. It was really hard and an EFFORT because we all have a sweet tooth. Thankfully, I discovered Sugar Blend.
What is Sugar Blend? Sugar Blend is a versatile and affordable sweetener product made with a blend of sugar and sucralose. It works well with all types of desserts and our everyday dishes that needs a little sweetness. Basically, anything that calls for sugar in the recipe. This can also be used to replace sugar in our coffee, tea, and juices.
Last night, I made some Chocolate Chip S’mores Cookies to surprise my daughter who is in a vacation at her Lolo and Lola. We’re going to fetch her today and I just knew that she would love these cookies. How did I know that? Well, our love for anything s’mores is through the roof and making it a cookie is just something that she would think is amazing and cool.
What I found amazing and cool, though, is that it didn’t change nor alter the taste of the cookies. Sugar Blend indeed sweetens like sugar. Normally, a recipe like this would call for 1½ cups of sugar. I only put 3/4 cup of Sugar Blend and it sweetens just as well.
I can just imagine that if I start using it, not only would our family consume half the amount of sugar we normally do, we would also consume half the calories. Yaayy!! that sounds like we’re really on our way to being healthier.
Sinking my teeth into these delectable Chocolate Chip S’mores Cookies makes it hard to believe that it’s made with only half the amount of sugar. It makes me feel good that I’m serving healthier versions of sweets and desserts. You may even #SweetAllYouCan if you want…
What do I love about Sugar Blend?
- Sugar Blend is a healthier alternative for pure sugar. It deliciously sweetens our favorite food and beverages the same way as sugar but with only half the calories.
- It is suitable both for cooking and baking.
- It’s healthier because you’ll end up using only half as much Sugar Blend. 1 teaspoon of Sugar Blend (16kcal) is equals to 2 teaspoons of sugar (32kcal)
- It’s very affordable at only ₱89.00 at supermakets nationwide.
- One pack can sweeten up to 100 cups of coffee. That’s great news for a coffee drinker who needs to cut back on sugar!
- It is made by a trusted brand that guarantees expertise in calorie saving solutions.
Give this Chocolate Chip S’mores Cookies a try and I’m so sure that you and your family will love it.

Thanks terri. Hope you like it.
Waaah nakakagutom! How’s the texture of sugar blend? Is it like Equal na mejo pulverized or is it like refined white sugar? Thanks! 😀
It’s more like sugar…
These look like awesome cookies. I need to try this sugar blend for baking for my in-laws, who are diabetic. They have to watch their sugar, but baking with plain artificial sweeteners can be difficult.
I’m sure this would be perfect!
These look SO delicious. Being on a GD diet right now I have to watch what I eat, and this is probably something I could indulge in every once in a while! They look so good.
Those chocolate chip smores cookies would make for the perfect sweet treat that I know my whole family would enjoy. I want to try to make these this weekend.
I’m sure you’ll love it.

My mouth is watering, these look awesome. This sounds like a great sweetener and alternative to sugar.
Yes it is. Thanks Bella!
They look so freaking good. My worry with sugar substitutes is that they won’t taste as good. I’m glad you mentioned that here.
And I’m SOLD! I’m totally making these this weekend! Thank you SO much for the great sugar substitute advice, too!
I’m sure you’ll love them Jeni!
Those cookies look REALLY REALLY REALLY GOOD!! I like that you made them with the sugar blend and look forward to trying to make them myself. 5 stars for sure!
Thank you so much Kathleen!
I have a sweet tooth too so when my doctor told me that I should limit my sugar intake, parang ang hirap magdiet. hehehe! Nice to know about this alternative.
