Using Stevia in your diet is advantageous because it reduce the amount of sugar that you consume. Baking with Stevia can be tricky because it does not have the same properties that sugar does. It cannot soften the batter, add texture, or help with the browning process like sugar. The most important thing to remember is not to use too much. Use the amount given to you in the recipe then taste before adding any more.
