I mentioned I would be experimenting with Stevia, and I have found that Stevia Baking Blend is a really easy product to work with in baking. I used it in these banana muffins and was thrilled with the results. I used coconut oil, egg replacer, and my favorite... Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour. But many of my gluten free flour combinations would be fine as well.
