I recently made a batch of homemade Truvia style sweetener. It is very easy to make and cheaper than buying Truvia.
I was using xylitol for our sweetener in baking, but it’s hard on our tummies. So, I bought 5 Pounds of Erythritol and mixed up some “truvia” sweetener by adding a little pure stevia extract powder to it.

I simply mixed 1/2 teaspoon of pure stevia extract powder with 1 cup of erythritol. I use half as much as sugar in recipes and it has worked great!
If you eat it raw (like on toast with cinnamon), it will have a cool sensation on your tongue, just FYI. Erythritol has very little (to none) effect on your blood sugar and tastes great!
It is derived from corn, so I chose NON-GMO. Stevia is a natural sweetener from the stevia plant. It is extremely strong, so a tiny bit goes a long way!

If you want “brown sugar”, simply mix 1/4 teaspoon of good quality molasses with 1/3 cup of your homemade “truvia” sweetener using a fork until fully combined (you can add a tiny bit of maple extract to help with flavor, as well). We enjoyed this on our coconut flour “THM-S” pancakes the other day, yum!
