    Cook's tip
    Stevia is a natural sweetener derived from the leaves of the stevia plant. It has a very low calorie count and is much sweeter than sugar. In this recipe, we’ve replaced 100g sugar with 35g Truvia sweetener. Other forms of stevia, such as crystals or cubes, vary in sweetness per gram and cannot be interchanged with the granules used here.
