I just bought "Wholesome Organic Blue Agave" sweetener and it is the best substitute sweetener I have ever tried! It's certified USDA, gluten free and a low glycemic organic sweetener. It's great on steel cut oatmeal or really anything else. I bought it at Costco, two bottles for $7 bucks.
A wonderful breakfast treat this holiday season is oatmeal for breakfast - with a twist. Use only half or 2/3 the normal serving of oatmeal, with smashed banana and pumpkin (great way to get breakfast veggies) and a few grams of chopped walnuts and or raisins, prunes, etc. Then mix in pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, calorie free sweetener or better yet, sugar free pancake syrup . MMmm, MMmm, GOOD!

Researchers found that the total food eaten over 14 days dramatically increased in the artificial sweetener group — meaning that the artificial sweetener stimulated their appetite and made them eat more."THERE’S NO DOUBT about it. Artificial sweeteners cause obesity" "Eliminate sugar and artificial sweeteners and your cravings will go away"
