Kasia, I haven't found maple sugar but you can get Brown rice syrup at Whole Foods. I also buy it at my natural foods co-op. Unfortunately I haven't found a regular grocery store to carry it. But find some. It is SOOO good!!!
THANKS MICHELLE !!! Found what I was looking for in Whole Foods market.I just started last week the whole vegan think so everything is new for me and I feel little bit lost.Thanks for helping :) BTW I found maple sugar,it's little bit expensive so for now I will just stick to rice syrup (also in WF store)
I have found an excellent substitue for sugar, thanks to Christina Pirello. She has quite a few cookbooks, 2 that I have used are "Christina Cooks" and "This Crazy Vegan Life". She recommends ERYTHRITOL. It is a natural sugar. It is fermented sugar alcohol. And one of the best things ever is, you won't believe it, but it is CALORIE FREE! It is 70 to 80% as sweet as sugar, works like sugar and is granulated. The brand I found is NOW and it cost me $8.99 for a pound. It also won't rot yours or your childrens teeth and can also be used by diabetics. I used it in the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups and had excellent results. I have also used it in Mini Pumpkin Cakes from Christina's This Crazy Vegan Life. Someday I am going to try the maple sugar. I also love the Rice Dream Mint Pies!!!! They are the best. Happy Baking!!!
