Sweet Giveaway!

I'm re-posting this just in case anyone missed it and would like to enter to win! Winners will be announced tomorrow so leave your comments today! And good luck!

This post was long time coming. But I wanted to try out a few of the wonderful products NuNaturals sent me before I wrote about them. Stick with me because there's a giveaway at the end!

Here's what they sent me:

oat

Wow, right?! It arrived in August and, since school started up on the 11th, I had to do my experimenting on the weekends because who the heck has energy to do anything other than teach during the week--oh, yeah, YOUNG people. Hmph.

Ok, I tried the liquid Stevia syrup--the simple and the cocoa and the cocoa mint- and the oat fiber. I shared a few of the items with a friend at school and she's been using them too.

To be honest, I am not a fan of Stevia in drinks. I'd rather use organic sugar to sweeten my beverages. However, my friend has been enjoying the Stevia in her drinks. And I do know other folks who also enjoy it.

BUT, when it comes to baking, I am a fan.

I used the oat fiber and then the simple syrup to sweeten my oatmeal chip cookies and they turned out lighter!




I used the oat fiber and simple syrup for banana bread. It was the best I've made in a while!





I used the oat fiber and then the simple syrup and the cocoa syrup to sweeten some chocolate zucchini brownies. I used the cocoa syrup to make a coconut oil icing for the brownies too. They were delish!





I shared all recipes at school and everything got TWO THUMBS UP!

Now, here's where it gets good for y'all! NuNaturals is letting me give away---

ONE bottle of Cherry Vanilla Stevia Liquid--



a 50 pkt box of NuStevia Powder packets--



a bottle of the Cocoa Syrup--



 a bottle of the Simple Syrup



AND a FREE BONUS PRODUCT!



WHAT?!

Yep!

  2. Wow! We started using stevia (Truvia) to sweeten our coffee and cereal and fruit (etc.) a couple of years ago. I am happy to learn about this company, and would love to be one of the four winners! I'll go check out the website, and will like their facebook page! Awesome to learn about good products that are good for us!

  3. I'm a bit intrigued. One of my sisters uses truvia in her drinks. I'm also very leery about using sweeteners (besides sugar) to bake, but it looks like it worked out for you!

    1. I don't usually use sweeteners either. I use organic sugar when baking and in my tea, though I mostly drink water. But this is good in cooked foods. I checked to make sure they were not associated with Monsanto or any of those guys and they're not. If you're looking to substitute sugar for a sweetener, I think this is the safest way to go. Just my opinion though.

    1. I am also wondering if you could tell me how much of the simple syrup you used in your baking. I'm assuming you replaced the sugar with the syrup?

    2. I did. It's 1/4 cup of syrup for 1 cup of sugar. Good luck with the giveaway! :)
