Sweet Cheat

Banana Muffins


One of the questions I often get is if Sweet Cheat Spoonable Monk Fruit can be used for baking. The short answer is “Yes…but”.  Sugar is a tricksy thing to replace. Chemically it does a lot for baking (think inhibiting gluten formation, retaining moisture, adding bulk…the list goes on). 


The good news is that with the right recipe you can still use Sweet Cheat Spoonable Monk Fruit to get a tender delicious muffin with no added sugar. This is just such a recipe. It’s easy enough to whip up on a Saturday morning, or before the kids come home from school. The best part is, that it has 0g of added sugar, but you'd never know by the taste. I think it’s perfect!
