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!

This muffin has 190 calories and 12 grams of sugar per serving, compared to the full-sugar version that has 225 calories and 21 grams of sugar per serving.
“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.
