After taking a bit of a break, I decided to jump back into the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle. The break was good, no weight gained back. However, I can feel my thyroid taking a hypo swing and I’d like to avoid packing on the pounds again.
When I drifted over to the Trim Healthy Mama Facebook group page, I saw lots of talk of caramel sauce. Well, that sounded about perfect! I raced to the kitchen and started playing and came up with a yummy sauce! (Thanks to all the THM ladies for the inspirations on the page, I never would have thought to try it. )
This was so fast to throw together. All you need (affiliate links) is butter, xylitol, molasses, (make sure you get one without sugar in it!) vanilla extract and some cream (You can sub half and half) and you will have something you will swear should not be legal on a ‘diet’. It is for sure an S item!
- ¼ cup xylitol
- ¼ cup butter
- ¼ tsp. molasses
- ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
- ¼ cup heavy cream
- a dash of sea salt
- Melt butter, xylitol and molasses together on medium to low heat. Stir constantly to avoid burning the sauce. Add vanilla, cream and salt and stir until well incorporated. Pour into jar and allow to cool before serving.
This is a yummy treat drizzled on your morning coffee…sigh. And if you are looking for a chocolate sauce, this one is amazing (and dairy free!)
