NuNaturals Stevia


Oh my Goodness, I got the best goodie box of wonderful products from NuNaturals. I have been in stevia heaven the last couple of weeks.


The NuStevia Baking blend is just great. It makes it so much easier to use stevia in baking. You just use it cup for cup in place of sugar. YIPPEE!!! I made peanut butter choc chip cookies. Can you say YUM????? These were a hit with everyone in the family. I used the recipe sent to me by NuNaturals (http://www.abouteating.com/)
Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup of peanut butter (your choice, creamy or chunky) I used almond butter)
1 cup NuNaturals NuStevia Baking Blend or their MoreFiber Blend (I used the baking blend)
1 large egg ( I used a flax "egg" 1 tbsp ground flax seed and 3 Tbsp water)
1 tsp baking soda

I also added in a handful or so of chocolate chips!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray baking sheet with non-stick spray. Beat everything together well. Roll into small balls and put 1: apart on baking sheets. Flatten with fork in cross-hatch pattern. Sprinkle a few crushed peanuts, flax seed etc on top (Optional, but good) Bake larger cookies 11-13 mins, smaller cookies 9-10 mins. (Remember there is carryover cooking after removing from oven, therefore you may want to remove them when you think the are slightly underdone!)










The cookies didn't last very long around here.

I've been carrying the NuStevia Clear Stevia drops in my purse. It's so handy to have when I get some tea.

The NuStevia White Stevia Powder Packets ar also good to have one hand. It instantly dissolves in either hot or cold liquids. I love the NuNaturals Pure Liquid Vanilla Stevia, Alcohol Free drops. Oh so much.




Vanilla Lemonade:
Juice 1 lemon
16 oz water
1 packet of NuStevia White Stevia Powder Packets
Several drops of NuNaturals Pure Liquid Vanilla Stevia ( I didn't count)
Ice
Mix all of the above in a shaker cup and then pour over ice and Enjoy! I know that it is cold, but this is a great way to get more water in your diet and it is sooo refreshing on a hot day!

The other product that I have been playing around with is the NuNaturals Pure Liquid Cocoa Bean Extract. This product has all the antioxidant power of a whole bar of chocolate at about the same cost, but without the fat and calories. It aslo is higher in levels of phenolics and flavonoids than Green tea, black tea and red wine. So, tasty. I have been enjoying a few drops in my oatmeal. YUMMY!

NuStevia is not bitter or powdery tasting like other kinds of stevia I have tried. They also have a NoCarb Blend. These are high quality, good tasting products.

I want to thank NuNaturals for providing me with these products to review. I received no compensation and the opinions are my own.
