I’m generally not a fan of blueberries, but I have found that this summer I have had quite the hankering for a delicious blueberry muffin. Rather than hitting up local coffee shops on a regular basis, I decided to take a stab at making some homemade blueberry muffins.
Muffins are usually pretty easy to whip up, and make a great snack when you are on the run or in the need of a quick bite to eat!
I referenced a recipe I found on Truvia’s website for Blueberry Muffins. This was this first time I had ever tried my hand at using sweetner while baking. The recipe turned out great!

“Extracted from the best tasting part of the stevia leaf plant, Truvia sweetener is a great calorie-free alternative to sugar. Deriving its sweetness from a natural source, it is also gluten-free and diabetic-friendly. Truvia has been approved by Health Canada for use as a tabletop sweetener and tastes great in coffee, tea, and summer beverages, or added to cereal or fruit. It is available at many retailers across Canada, in 40- and 80-packet boxes and in a spoonable jar format.”
I have to admit while I’m not a fan of sweetner in my coffee. That being said, I did find love using sweetner in place of sugar on my morning fruits. I few dashes of Truvia on top of strawberries and grapefruit is delicious!! Not to mention you don’t hold any guilt for sweetening your fruit with Truvia. Truvia is calorie-free. As someone who likes to cut out sugar from her diet as much as possible. Truvia is a subsitituion.
