Simple Baking Tips for Using Stevia and Xylitol

This post contains affiliate links. 

Guest Post from Sarah of Whole Intentions

During September, I had the pleasure of creating 40 dessert recipes using purely stevia and xylitol as the sweeteners. My friend Paula, who blogs at Whole Intentions, and I got this whacky idea that we’d write a cookbook. We’ll both tell you that the Lord’s hand was over the entire process because we could never have imagined that at month’s end we’d have over 70 recipes to share!

Both Paula and I have suffered with candida. Our personal struggles combined with our love for baking lead us to write The Sweeter Side of Candida.  In my introduction, I wrote that the process of writing these recipes was, “almost like medicine to my soul as I created them with the anticipation that they might help some of you continue in your journey to health.” But this cookbook is definitely not just for those who suffer from candida. It’s for anyone trying to avoid refined sugar, to lose weight, or to just be healthy!

Our month-long course of baking boot camp (or paradise, for me) taught us quite a few things about our dear friends stevia and xylitol. As people tested our recipes, they couldn’t believe there was no “sweetener” aftertaste that so often comes with using sugar alternatives. Paula and I both believe that using the following “tricks” create the beautiful marriage of flavors that will delight you.

Lemon BlondiesStevia and Xylitol Baking Tips

Here are our favorite MAKE-NOTE-OF-THESE tips:

1.) There are a LOT of brands of stevia, as we’re sure you’re well aware. Some brands are sweeter than others, some have an aftertaste, some are cheap, some are spendy, and then there’s all those off-shoot brands like Truvia.

This makes it hard to follow any cookbook that uses stevia unless you’re all using the same brand. Even Paula and I don’t use the same brand! :)

Every time we mention stevia in our cookbook, we say to use it ‘to taste’. You’ll probably want to ring our necks for being so vague, but really, there’s no other way around it.

The best words of advice we can give is to start out sprinkling it. Taste test, and sprinkle a little more. Stevia is a LOT sweeter than sugar (like 200-300 times sweeter), so you definitely don’t want to use equal proportions, however there is such a thing as too much stevia which can make your baked goods have a bitter aftertaste. So be sure to play, taste – play, taste. . .

2.) Stevia and salt are best friends. Some things simply taste better when they’re together. So is true with stevia and salt. You’ll find that nearly every recipe in The Sweeter Side of Candida  calls for ‘a pinch of celtic sea salt’ and ‘stevia to taste’.

Stevia and salt have made friendship bracelets, buried a time capsule, and promised to be best friends until the day they die. Do. Not. Separate. ;)

Mock Cinnabons

3. Sometimes xylitol needs to be powdered first. Xylitol doesn’t dissolve as easily as refined white sugar does, so in some recipes it’s best to grind it first in a coffee grinder or high-powered blender so it’s more like powdered sugar. In some of our recipes we measured already powdered xylitol, and in others we measure the granules and then powdered them.

4. Stevia and xylitol compliment each other. Like a good marriage we’ve found that when a recipe seems like something is missing, it comes together beautifully when both sweeteners are used. Some recipes can stand alone with just one or the other, but others needed them both for that finishing touch (cue violin music).

There’s no right or wrong way to use these two sweeteners, but we found that Paula likes to add stevia first and then top it off with xylitol whereas I like to start off with xylitol. Each method works well.

If you want to play around with your own recipes, here is a good Sugar Conversion Chart.

5. Use a bit more sweetener in recipes you’re baking or freezing. When you’re using stevia or xylitol in a recipe that you’ll be baking or freezing, get it to the point of perfection, and then add just a tad more. When it’s almost too sweet – it’s perfect. Baking and freezing seem to subdue the sweeteners.

6. Get a spoon, dip your finger, or swipe the beaters. You have our complete and total permission (like you need it!) to taste your batters, dough, and frostings to tweak the sweetness factor to your liking. Just be sure there’s enough to bake with. ;) We both taste all of our batters (a lot!) to make sure that they’re just right, so don’t be shy, taste away!

Pit Powder Giveaway

Review & Giveaway: Pit Powder {Muddy H2O}

Pit Powder Giveaway

I’ve been using Muddy H2O’s Pit Powder for 2 weeks now and I love it.  Not only is it effective, and that’s hard to find in a natural deodorant, but I find that the powder form helps absorb some of the sweat and has left me dry all day.  No more low high five’s and at the side waves.  Now I can raise my arms without fear of the embarrassing sweat marks.

Pit Powder is a deodorant, not an antiperspirant.  Your body is still allowed to sweat, ridding the body of toxins as it does so.  Sweating is actually a healthy and normal bodily function.  The clay and arrow root powder in Pit Powder absorb the moisture and are soothing to the sensitive skin that is under our arms. The baking soda, essential oils and herbs in Pit Powder help combat the bacteria leaving you odor free.

100% natural, there are no harmful chemicals in Pit Powder. I’ve found that one application gets me through the day when I’m at home most of the day.  When running errands or playing out with the kids I find that a second application in the afternoon keeps me fresh till bedtime.

My shaker after two weeks is still nearly full to the top.  A little goes a long way and I’m expecting my shaker of Pit Powder to last me 2-3 months. The folks at Muddy H2O are going to give one of you your very own shaker of 100% natural, handmade in the USA, Pit Powder!  Just enter below.

Pregnancy Smoothie (1)

This raw smoothie is a great substitute for that afternoon coffee.  And it’s full of superfoods for the pregnant or nursing mother.  I developed this smoothie specifically for one and combined some foods that I try to incorporate into my daily diet when pregnant or nursing.  Most of these foods are raw, providing more nutrition for you and baby.

Now in my 25th week of pregnancy this raw  smoothie fulfills that desire to grab a quick treat as I sit down to homeschool my older children.  And leaves me full until dinner.

This post contains affiliate links, Thank You for supporting Simple Foody!Making Vegetables Giveaway

 

Like Shoshanna’s other book, Making Babies, Making Vegetables was passed around from child to adult in our home.  The pictures easily entice the non-reader, or young reader to learn more about radishes, peppers, or kale.  We’re big fans of heirloom seeds, and this book didn’t let us down.  The pages are filled with instructions on how to germinate those seeds, and care for the seedlings.  Organic growing practices and much more….my husband’s favorite and newest addiction, compost tea!  Someone tell him to get the 5 gallon bucket of compost tea out of my kitchen.

 

MVG

 

Are you new to gardening?  Are you a long time gardener?  This book is for you.  You’ll love the easy to read instructions on how to do it all if your new to planting, caring, and harvesting vegetables.  If you’ve been gardening for years, you’ll love the encouragement and reference you’ll get from Making Vegetables Vol. 1, and who knows, you may learn a thing or two.

8 Ways to Naturally Increase Your Vitamin D Intake

As we end winter and being spring, many may find ourselves with a low vitamin D count.  Vitamin D actually isn’t a vitamin at all, but rather a hormone.  And one our bodies need to function at their best.  Vitamin D helps the nervous system, bone health, deficiencies have been linked to high blood pressure and even cancer.

I recently found myself vitamin D deficient.  I was determined to increase my daily dose of vitamin D naturally as I’m always a little leery of synthetic vitamins.
