Baking with NuNaturals Stevia ~ Sugarless Blueberry Orange Yogurt Muffin & GIVEAWAY 有礼送!

This is a long overdue post. Last year before Christmas I received a big carton of stevia products from NuNatural Inc for sampling. Thanks Ron from NuNaturals for giving me the opportunity to try out so many NuNaturals stevia products at the same time.

Look at the products I received.

NuNaturals flavoured liquid products are made of the real extracts instead of artificial flavouring. These products provide an excellent opportunity to add distinct flavor to your favorite dish or beverage without the guilt of calories. They are perfect for those individuals fighting the challenges of Diabetes & obesity plus looking to reduce or eliminate refined sugar from their diet.

Please visit NuNaturals product page - https://nunaturals.com/page/411, to find out more about the above products and the complete list of NuNaturals products.


I first learned about stevia in 2011 from my aunt. My aunt was very kind to give me some to try out. I added to my daily coffee but I disliked it as it gave bitter aftertaste. My coffee did not taste like the usual coffee I used to enjoy. So when I received the samples from NuNaturals the first product I tried was NuStevia White Stevia Powder. I was eager to find out if it was any different from the one I had.  

NuStevia White Stevia Powder comes in convenient packaging of individual sachet. One sachet is just nice for one cup of coffee (240-250ml). After tasting, I think it is much better than my previous experience. I would not say it tastes exactly the same as sugar but the aftertaste is very minimal, maybe 1 to the scale of 10. I would think that for someone who first tries Stevia will still feel the difference. However, after second or third serving you probably can’t taste any difference. This makes me believe that NuNaturals stevia products are superior to other stevia products available.


I have created a quick and easy and of course healthy muffin recipe using 3 types of NuNaturals products which I am going to share with you. Tons of recipes enhanced with NuNaturals products can be found at NuNaturals webiste HERE. Do hop over to get more ideas of cooking/baking with NuNaturals stevia products.

At the end of this post there will be a GIVEAWAY sponsored by NuNaturals, you will stand a chance to win NuNaturals products worth USD56.60, so please read till the end.


   Sugarless Blueberry Orange Yogurt Muffin
  
   Ingredients:
   (A)
   2 eggs
   1 tsp NuNaturals Orange NuStevia Liquid
   1 tsp NuNaturals Vanilla NuStevia Liquid
   1 tsp NuNaturals Prebiotics Blend
   (B)
   100g vegetable oil
   (C)
   90g fresh milk
   160g natural yogurt (I used home-made yogurt)
   (D)
   200g plain flour/ multi-purpose flour
   2 tsp baking powder
   ¼ tsp baking soda
   (E)
   100g blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  
   Method:
  1. Whisk (A) till well combined. Add (B) and mix well.
  2. Add (C), mix well.
  3. Sift in (D) in 2 additions, mix till just incorporated before each addition. Do not over mix.
  4. Fold in (E) gently.
  5. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups till 70% full. Bake in a preheated oven at 185°C for about 25 to 30 minutes (depending on the size of your cup) or till golden brown.
   Note:
  1. The 3 tsp of NuNatural products used in the recipe is the substitute of about ½ cup (100g) of sugar.
  2. To make low fat muffin, you may reduce the oil or even omit the oil totally. I have experimented with this recipe without oil and the muffin still turned out soft though it was not as moist.
