    • Hi Sharon, thanks for asking! You can use granulated sweetener but might want to mix it with a bit of water before you add it. That way it blends in better with the other ingredients. I’ve added granualted sweetener in another recipe before and ended up with the feeling of having a handful of sand in my mouth because it didn’t liquidate like sugar does. Hope that helps!
