Sponsored Post: Truvia® in my Holiday Dessert Recipe!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Truvia® Natural Sweetener for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

As you might know, I'm trying to cut back on sugar for myself, my toddler, and my diabetic husband.  That's why I was so excited to do this post for Truvia® Baking Blend.  It's a sugar substitute.  


Designed for easy, at-home baking, Truvia® Baking Blend is a blend of Truvia natural sweetener and sugar.

Truvia® Baking Blend provides sugar-like taste and texture in recipes, but with 75% fewer calories and twice the amount of sweetness than sugar.

Baked goods made with Truvia® Baking Blend will have sugar-like texture and moistness and will bake and brown like recipes that are made with sugar.

One 1.5 pound bag of Truvia® Baking Blend has equivalent sweetness to 3 pounds of sugar, which is approximately 7 cups – enough to make 13 pies, 9 batches of cookies or 6 batches of brownies.

Truvia® Baking Blend is available at retail stores nationwide in a 1.5 ppound bag with a closeable, easy-to-use pour spout.  (My daughter LOVES to play with this spout, pretending she's squirting soup into our hands.  Hahaha!)

I found this brownie recipe on Pinterest and adapted it for this post.  🙂


Christmas Brownies


* 1/2 Cup Truvia® Baking Blend
* 1/2 Cup Flour
* 1/3 Cup Cocoa
* 1/4 tsp Salt
* 1/4 tsp Baking Powder

[Combine the Above Dry Ingredients]

* 2 Eggs
* 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
* 1 t Vanilla
[Add wet ingredients, mix]
[Optional: Add holiday sprinkles on top before baking.]

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Make sure to do the toothpick test to make sure they're done!

[Other Optional Idea: Frost the brownies and add sprinkles after baking.  I used a peanut butter frosting recipe for this batch.]

Let your toddler help you bake the brownies!  Cupcakes had a GREAT time helping Mommy!

Don't they look delicious!  My husband and friend (whose birthday it was so I brought a brownie) thought so!!  🙂  My husband and I love brownies so this Truvia® Baking Blend was so amazing.  Perhaps the best part about them was that they didn't give Hobbs high blood sugar.  🙂
