You can create healthier stevia recipes for almost all your family’s meals. Just exchange the sugar with Stevia. This works in practically any recipe. The exception is some bead recipes. Yeast will not ferment actual sugar alternatives. Your yeast will not rise. Like Stevia, aspartame, or xylitol, are not actual sugars. They are merely sweeteners.
Stevia is a South American plant that is sweeter than sugar and consuming it doesn’t hurt you. In recent years, stevia has become more popular as a natural sugar substitute. It is up to 300 times sweeter than sugar, but it has no calories and barely any effect on blood glucose levels. (Note: It tastes like most artificial sweeteners, which is to say that it is slightly bitter.)
If you want to bake with stevia instead of sugar, you will also need to use the same amount of something else as a thickener, like apple fiber, to make up for the volume. If you need a thickener, but don’t want to use one made from animals or if your recipe has citrus fruits or fruits like pineapple that don’t go well with some thickeners, apple fiber powder would be the best choice. Apple fiber powder is a vegetable thickener that doesn’t have any fat and gives our bodies vitamins and minerals, as well as fiber, which helps the body break down food.
1 tsp sugar = 2 to 3 liquid drops of stevia OR a 1/4 tsp powdered stevia (& then add 1 tsp of a thickener)
1 cup of sugar = 1 tsp of liquid stevia OR 2 tbsp of stevia powder (& then add 1 cup of a thickener)
FAQ’s About Stevia Recipes
Can You Replace Sugar To Make Stevia Cookie Recipes?
The great news for those of us who love to bake is that you can use stevia in cookies by substituting it for sugar … with one caveat. Without sugar, your cookie dough has much less volume so you have to adjust the other ingredients in your recipe to make up for the lost bulk. (*see apple fiber powder above)
How Much Stevia Should I Use in a Stevia Cookie Recipe?
You’re going to use 1 teaspoon of stevia for every cup of sugar that the recipe calls for. To make up for the lost bulk, you can use apple fiber powder to thicken your recipes. If the recipe calles for 1 cup of sugar, replace it with 1 cup of your thickener.
Does Stevia Bake the Same as Sugar?
The Stevia leaves are dried to form a powder, which can be used in baking – one teaspoon of stevia powder is about the same sweetness as one cup of sugar. It is important to note, however, that stevia does not caramelize.
Can I Switch Sugar Recipes With Stevia Recipes When Baking?
Stevia can be substituted for sugar in every instance. When baking you can use half the amount of sugar you normally would when using stevia instead. The liquid and powder are best to use when replacing sugar in baked goods. Although, in a few instances sugar is necessary, like when baking breads.
Does Stevia Change the Texture of Cookies?
Ideally, when you are creating a Stevia cookie recipe, you should only swap up to half of the sugar called for in a recipe to maintain the taste and texture of the cookie. Since sugar adds volume to a dough, your cookies are likely to lose volume. To make up for the lost bulk, you can use apple fiber powder to thicken your Stevia cookie recipes.
