Natural Sugar Substitutes

I am trying to find out how to substitute agave for artificial sweeteners in recipes.

I am type 2 diabetic and highly sensitive to all artificial sweeteners (they give me migraines even stevia) any help will be greatly appreciated!


Hi Debbie,

As individual artificial sweeteners vary and many recipes don't call for artificial sweeteners, I've only posted information for honey and sugar. If you need information on a specific artificial sweetener, just let me know.

Just substitute Agave in equal parts for honey in most recipes. As a substitute for sugar, use 3/4 cup agave nectar for 1 cup of sugar, and reduce the recipe liquid content by 1/4 cup.

Hope this helps,
