Stevia Recipes

Here's some recipes I've developed to use Stevia-- a natural sugar substitute that has no side effects. I used the powdered green stevia available.  You don't notice the color, and the whole leaf has more nutrients. It tastes great.

With stevia, I notice that it hits the tastebuds later than regular sugar. So it is best to have some type of sweetener in the recipe.  Banana bread has the natural fruit sweetener, but with something like pumpkin bread, I add some honey or use sweetened yogurt.

ANCIENT GRAIN WHEAT

I also use ancient grain wheat. That is wheat that has not been compromised by genetic modification.  Studies show that ancient grain wheat does not spike the glucose levels in the body and does not come with side effects such as Crohns.  I have summarized the book Wheat Belly, which discusses the toxic nature of genetically modified wheat.

Here are some places you can buy the ancient non-toxic wheat:


BANANA BREAD

  • 3 c. Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 c. Butter
  • 2/3 c.  Milk or Soymilk
  • 3-4 Eggs
  • 3 Mashed Bananas
  • 1-2 T. green powdered stevia (depending on your taste)
  • 2 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped fruit

Pour into a greased flat pan, about 15 x 12, and cook for about half an hour, at about 325.


EXTRA SPICY PUMPKIN BREAD

Totally love this! I tripled the spices.  The yogurt makes it very moist.
  • 3 c. Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 c. Butter (1/4 butter + 1/4 oil)
  • 1 c. Milk
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 c. Sweetened Vanilla Yogurt
  • 2 c. Mashed Pumpkin
  • 1-2 T. Green Stevia (depending on your taste)
  • 2 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 4 T. Ginger
  • 2.5 tsp. Nutmeg
  • 1.5 tsp. Cloves
  • 2 tsp. Cinnamon
If you use unsweetened unflavored yogurt or sour cream, add the following instead:

  • 1/4 to 1/2 c.  honey
  • 2 tsp. vanilla



BAKING POWDER BISCUITS

My favorite snack, no sweetener.
  • 2 c.  Flour
  • 3 tsp (1 T) Aluminum-free Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 c.  Butter
  • 3/4 c.  Milk
