Has anyone seen this new sweetener at the store yet?
I was picking up a few things the other night, and happened to see this on sale. It’s a sugar free, calorie free sweetener, good for diabetics, and you can actually use it for baking as well. Whenever a recipe calls for sugar, you can replace the same exact amount of Nevella.
So, since you all know I am a muffin fanatic, I decided to try this recipe, and see how it turned out. And, you may also know that I love BIG muffins, so I used my 6 giant muffin tin my Momma gave me to make 6 giant muffins.
The result? FANTASTIC!! I could not taste the difference between sugar and using this sweetener. There was no icky aftertaste, or anything.
Here is the recipe I came up with:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup Nevella sweetener
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cup skim milk
3 TB. Canola Oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1 banana, smashed
6 TB. chocolate chips*
Now, I never mix the wet ingredients and then add the dry. Just dump all that into a bowl and mix for about a minute.
Now here is the important part. Let the batter sit for 10 minutes. This lets the baking powder do its thing and make the muffins nice and fluffly.
I divided the batter into the 6 muffin tins. Then I actually weighed out 1 serving of chocolate chips to each muffin. Then using a toothpick, I just swirled the batter around to incorporate the chocolate chips into each muffin. This way, I knew exactly how many calories each muffin had.
Look at how high they rose!! Each HUGE muffin is 282 calories 10 grams of fat and 1.9 grams of fiber. . Way better than a bakery muffin in my book!
Since this was my first attempt, and since the results were so good, next time I may add egg whites instead of whole eggs, add tofu instead of the oil and see what happens with that.
Has anyone else tried this product yet, what did you think??
I was not given a free sample of this product, my review is my opinion only.
