- The sweetener in this recipe only counts as 12 grams of carbs. But the CH includes some carbs made of real sugars. If you have a sensitivity to sugar you may want to choose to use Swerve or another substitute sweetener. Replacement would be 2 tablespoons of Swerve, and 24 grams of carbs.
- Not following a Keto Diet? You can use granulated sugar instead of a sugar substitute.
