The Holidays are qucikly approaching. That means that the pounds are about to quickly start piling on for most of us. Sometimes I dread the Holidays for this very reason! I have zero self-control. But the pounds don't have to pile on! Truvia® Baking Blend is a mixture of Truvia® natural sweetner and sugar. Truvia® offers a sugar-like texture and is perfect for baking. A 1.5 pound bag of Truvia® Baking Blends has the equivalent sweetness to 3 pounds of sugar. It offers 75% fewer calories than using sugar alone! I'll shave calories where I can! Escpecially during the Holidays.
Visit the Truvia® website for more tips and information on Truvia® Baking Blend. The website also offers recipes! These chocolate chip cookies only require 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp of Truvia® Baking Blend. There is 60% less sugar than what is in regular chocolate chip cookies. Rev up your chocolate chip cookie while also offering a lower calorie version! I bet that no one will even be able to taste the difference.
Have you ever used a sweetner in your recipes rather than sugar? Be sure to check out the website for many different recipes. There are quite a few for the Holidays. No worrying about the conversions from sugar to sweetner because the conversions are right there in the recipe.
On your next shopping trip, look for Truvia® sitting on the shelf. It is avaialbe at retail stores. Grab Truvia® rather than sugar to include in all of your upcoming Holiday treats. Save as many calories as you possibly can!
