    Hi on the Biscotti recipe it calls for •3 1/3 cup all purpose flour. Yet only 2 grams of net carbs?

    • Swerve

      Hi D Ray, thanks for the comment! We looked into the nutrition facts and it turns out we had the nutrition facts mixed up with another recipe. Thanks for catching that - each serving has 22g net carbs. We do have some more biscotti recipes that are grain free if you are looking for a lower carb option :)

    Hi, I wanted to let you know that I do have a low carb biscotti recipe that involves using Almond flour rather than using standard 'flour'. This one is a Fennel Almond Biscotti that tastes amazing. I'll send you the recipe if you are interested. I figure the conversion for sugar should be 1-1 correct? What is the cooking difference between the Brown and regular granular when it comes to baking?
