|Delicious Pineapple Coconut Muffins that are light and fluffy, gluten free, sugar free, grain free|
Here's a new Low Carb Pina Colada Muffin to say Thanks to all of my FB fans! These yummy, almost guilt free, gluten free, sugar free and grain free Pineapple Coconut Muffins are scrumptious!
I used Erythritol and Stevia for the sweeteners today. I don't use Erythritol often, it's expensive, but it worked well in these muffins. Have you used Erythritol it in your baking? I would love to hear your thoughts.
I decided to stop using Splenda. It's just not worth the health risks. It's a shame, because it bakes up so well and it's affordable. Here's some info on the risks Read about Splenda here.
I do highly recommend liquid Stevia. It's a little tricky figuring out how much to use when substituting in a recipe. This is a simple formula that I use. 5 drops liquid stevia = 1 tablespoon honey.
