I use Coconut palm sugar when a granulated sweetener is needed.  It can be found in 1 lb pouches both online and at natural food stores.    Hopefully it will be more available as consumers become more aware of its benefits.

Blocks of palm sugar are available in Asian markets, but it is more difficult to work into standard recipes.
