    Stevia is an herb, also called "sweetleaf," that is native to South America. It is used in powdered or liquid form as a sweetener. In the US there was some controversy about it years ago, and the FDA currently requires it to be advertised as a supplement rather than a sweetener. But you can still find it in the natural foods section of many mainstream grocery stores and practically every health food store. At The Natural Choice, we stock a pure form from Stevita, but you will most often find it blended with fiber, as Tanya mentioned. For this recipe, either one will work fine, but you don't need as much of the pure form. I'll make a note of that in the recipe (thanks, Tanya!).

    You don't necessarily have to use the stevia, though. If you're not too concerned about the sugar content, you could use a little honey, maple syrup, or blackstrap molasses. If you do use stevia, be careful of the amount, since it has a somewhat unpleasant aftertaste if you overdo it. Whatever you do, don't use an artificial sweetener, since those are all at least somewhat toxic.

    Sounds good, but one question. Is the stevia used in this recipe pure or is it a packaged brand that has been cut with fiber or something?The pure is so strong that I thought I should ask first. Tanya
