The recipes here use Truvia or other "stevia & erythritol" sugar substitute copies of Truvia. This is fast becoming my sugar-sub of choice for so many recipes.

Truvia Basics

My own experience using Truvia, or Truvia Baking Blend in my recipes (as I found with Splenda too...), is the 1/2 Truvia to 1 Sugar substitute is a bit heavy. So I virtually always use a little less Truvia than called for, and, as with all sugar-subs in my experience, this takes the flavor edge off...

I notice no muted sweetness, just milder sweetness.
