Less sugar, less fat and healthy food? The question is, how to bake healthier? Thanks Natvia for offering this great way to bake organically with less calories!
Natvia is a sweetener which is made out of organic stevia. This 100% natural sugar is a great healthy substitute to our white sugar because it is 97% less calories, that is only 0.4 calories per serving!
How great is that?
As a 1 for 1 replacement in this recipe, I used Natvia instead of brown sugar to produce this low carbs, non-artificial and high-antioxidant green tea breakfast granola.
The combination of matcha and cranberry has also assembled the theme colour of Natvia as the first credit to Natvia.
