    Brown sugar? 1/2 cup…. doesn’t seem healthy?

      Hmm, you’re right, although brown sugar is the cheapest option for sweetener here. Stevia, honey, and other sweeteners can be pricey, or else not good for you either, even if lower in calories. Fruit can help add more natural sweetness, but other than that, the healthiest options would have no sweetener at all.
