Stevia is my go-to sweetener. 99% of the sweets I create on Family Fresh Cooking are sugar free. Each time I post a muffin, cookie, cake, parfait, pudding or breakfast with stevia I get many questions about it. Stevia is becoming more and more popular for calorie conscious & low carb diets. I want to help clear up confusions out there and help you get used to baking with it. For more information on why I made this choice and to learn about sugar versus stevia please see my post Sugar Free Lifestyle.
In order to stay fit, sharp and prevent irritability I switched to stevia a few years ago. It has changed my world. Do my baked goodies taste great? You bet! People that taste them cannot tell they have no refined sugar. With more and more people facing weight challenges, diabetes and other diet related concerns this low glycemic option can help us keep our favorite treats without having to loosen our belts.
