    These look so good!! A quick question though….in the recipe you say to use 3/4 c. Truvia blend or 1/2 c. sugar, but then afterward you said, “convert any recipe by using half as much baking blend as you would sugar”. Should the recipe have said 1/4 c. Truvia? Or maybe I’m missing something? Either way, I’ll be making these for sure! =)

    I just made these following the recipe, but using regular sugar. They came out flatter than pancakes, no puff at all, and not very appealing looking. Where might I have gone wrong?

      Not sure what could have gone wrong. Butter can only be softened, not melted. Other than that, we have no idea. We have not had a problem with them. Sorry it didn’t work out.
