We are so excited to be part of the Truvia® Kitchen Cabinet as "honestly sweet" ambassadors!
For the next 6 months, we've partnered with Truvia® to bring you tried and true recipes using the new Truvia® Baking Blend. We know first-hand how hard it is to make good decisions regarding food choices this time of year (everything is just so delicious!), and Truvia Baking Blend is a great way to decrease your calorie intake while still enjoying your favorite treats!

You can use  Truvia® Baking Blend in any recipe that has sugar!  Replace sugar using 1/2 the amount of Truvia® Baking Blend (for example, use 1/2 cup Truvia® Baking Blend in place of 1 cup sugar).  If you made this recipe using sugar, each muffin would have 207 calories.  Using Truvia® Baking Blend, each muffin has 164 calories!  Much better!

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins Recipe with Truvia® Baking Blend:
(Makes 12 muffins)

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup Truvia sweetener
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons poppy seeds

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Place 12 cupcake liners in a 12-cup muffin tin.  Set aside.  In a large bowl, cream together butter, lemon zest, milk and Truvia until light and fluffy.  Beat in eggs, one at a time.  Stir in poppy seeds.  Mix in flour, baking powder and salt until just combined, making sure to not over-mix the batter.  Divide the batter evenly into the muffin tins and sprinkle with additional Truvia.  Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

    These look delicious (but when do you add the milk?)! I’m going to make these as a loaf (I don’t have a muffin tin here in Argentina, on the mission field)… I’m sure the baking time will have to be increased a little. I might even use orange peel and substitute orange juice for the milk!

      Just add it with the flour, baking soda,and salt. Sorry about that. We’ll fix that on the recipe. Best of luck making it in the loaf pan. How exciting to be serving in Argentina! :) -The Six Sisters
