Note: you may opt to use stevia instead of either Splenda or white sugar in your recipe. Problem being that I found Stevia to have an unusual flavouring. But the good side is that Stevia is proven not to boost blood sugar levels like both Splenda and white sugar does, in which case there’s less of an insulin boost, which inevitably actually enhances the over-all loss of weight.
