When it comes to baking in the fall it’s all about apples and pumpkin, so why not combine the two! I teamed up with Stevia In The Raw®, a zero-calorie sweetener made from the extract from the sweet leaves of the stevia plant and perfect for all baking and cooking needs, to bring you these delicious and fluffy Apple cinnamon pumpkin muffins with caramel drizzle on top..
Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag measures cup for cup with sugar, so it can easily be used in any of your favorite recipes to reduce sugar and calories. No conversion from sugar is necessary, as Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag is formulated so that 1 cup has the same sweetness as 1 cup of sugar. When using Stevia In The Raw® for baking recipes, it is recommended that the user replace about half the sugar in order to achieve the proper browning, rising and caramelizing that only sugar can provide. Up to 700 calories can be saved for every cup of sugar that is swapped out for Stevia In The Raw®.
These muffins are so easy to prepare and just 109 calories and 3 smart points each.. Go bake some up today, I promise you will love them!
