Brown sugar is a sucrose sugar product with a distinctive brown color due to the presence of molasses. It is either an unrefined or partially refined soft sugar consisting of sugar crystals with some residual molasses content, or it is produced by the addition of molasses to refined white sugar.

Brown sugar contains from 3.5% molasses (light brown sugar)
to 6.5% molasses (dark brown sugar). 

Brown sugar has a slightly lower caloric value by weight than white sugar due to the presence of water. One hundred grams of brown sugar contains 373 calories, as opposed to 396 calories in white sugar.

However, brown sugar packs more densely than white sugar due to the smaller crystal size and may have more calories when measured by volume. One tablespoon of brown sugar has 48 calories against 45 calories for white sugar.

Dried Fruits, Chocolate Chips and Flaxseed Cookies

Photo of Dried Fruits, Chocolate Chips and Flaxseed Cookies

I have been eating these cookies for breakfast in the last a few days. They were certainly wholesome yet tasty enough to start an energized day, with a cup of milk, coffee, or tea. Loved the combination of whole wheat flour, oats, flax seed meal, a few my favorite dried fruits, orange juice, olive oil and walnuts. These cookies were packed with goodness yet yumminess. You can add any your favorite dried fruits, or even some chocolate chips.
