What do you do when you can not use any artificial sweetners. This is really frustrating me. I try to use less sugar in recipes but I do not have good results when I reduce the amt. Any ideas?

Truvia or stevia cannot be used in baking unfortunately, yet. The company is trying to perfect a cooking/baking compound as we speak. You can try it in drinks or teas tho and it is just fine. It is a natural product. Also use honey as was suggested but use about 1/2 the amount of honey than you would use in sugar.Agave nectar can be used but I am not sure what the amounts are, in addition to a whey product, again not sure of the amount, and maybe someone can help with the name of it.

What about the sweeteners such as Truvia or Stevia, that are made from a plant and not aspartame? Have you given them a try?

Change the type of sweetners. I have heard of using concentrated apple juice in place of sugar in recepies. Use honey, use natural sugars but sparenly. Good luck.
