Coconut flower sugar is a better alternative from table sugar.  Coconut sugar is a sugar produce from the sap of cut flower buds from the coconut palm. The sap from the coconut flower buds i collected then it is boiled over moderate heat to evaporated most of its water content. The final product is coconut sugar, which is caramel coloured and taste similar to brown sugar.

Grated coconut flower sugar.
Original it is in a hard disc form. 

These precious coconut flower sugar discs are from
my husband's classmate. It is shipped in from
Thailand! Thanks friend!!

Brownie appeared cooked but it is actually half cook inside.
Scrape the half cook brownie with a spatula.
Pour in the cream cheese mixture, swirl, mix, swirl, mix
Cheese brownie is done!!

This brownie is my boys' favourite too!

  1. Hi Doreen,

    I see that you have been cooking and baking to link many posts with Sharon... LOL! Great idea to use coconut flower sugars to bake these brownies :)


  2. These brownies must be full of flavour and aromatic. I love using coconut sugar too, but the one I bought are darker in colour. Wonder if they are the same?

  3. Hi Doreen, the brownies looks so yummy! This is the first time I heard about coconut flower sugars. Will find out more :D Thanks.
