I woke up this morning and I was all excited to treat myself to blueberry lemon muffins. Once I opened the fridge to start baking, I spotted a bag of fresh, plump cherries and reached for them right away. Change of plans. I decided to make cherry almond muffins instead and enjoy all perks of the season. Summer brings an abundance of glorious fresh and happy fruits! I have to pace myself when cooking, because otherwise I will overwhelm myself with all kinds of ideas that I want to create!
Baking Muffins With Stevia
I used to be allergic to sugars of any kind. Fruit, honey, maple syrup, all of it. Thankfully, that changed this year. I can once again indulge in some maple syrup in my muffins from time to time. For all my sugar free reader out there, I feel ya. Replacing the maple syrup with stevia liquid works well in this recipe. Omitting the cherries in this recipe works too, if needed.
People are always asking me what type of stevia I use to cook with. I always use organic liquid stevia. Powdered stevia products are filled with preservatives and additives. The brand I use is called, NOW Organic Stevia. I have provided a link to the product for purchasing HERE. I love stevia and use it often in baked goods, teas, another uses. It has an acquired taste some say, but it is a lifesaver when I don’t want my blood sugar to spike. Happy cooking friends!
