1 1/4cupsorganic coconut sugar
1tablespoon+ 2 teaspoons regular Grandma's unsulphured molasses (do not use blackstrap, it is way too strong)
optional flavors: 1 teaspoon vanilla powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Use the 1 teaspoon per 1 cup of brown sugar. Use them for coffees, teas, oatmeal, baking, etc.
Just simply add the sugar and molasses to a bowl and using a fork, mix it until it all comes together and becomes damp and resembles brown sugar. It may seem too dry at first, but keep mixing and mashing/pressing it with the back of your fork and it will happen. Make sure to scrape all the molasses off the bowl and fork. Store in a tightly sealed container to keep it moist, or it can harden and dry out (just like regular brown sugar). But save it for tomorrow's new recipe!
This yields a very similar to taste to light brown sugar, which I prefer, if you want it darker, add a tiny bit more molasses.
