You won't find sugar cane in these recipes but Stevia is not always the only sweetener.

After realizing my addiction to cakes, cookies, brownies, and basically anything baked with sugar I knew I had to find a better way to eat my sweets without the sugar that was killing my pancreas and about to cause me diabetes.

When I was originally looking for a Stevia cookbook I first searched for "Stevia Cookbook" on Amazon and got a list of the few that exist. I then went to my local library and put them all on hold so I could read them and decide which one I wanted to buy. Stevia by Rita DePuydt was the winner and has been my go to dessert book for about a year now.

Of all the Stevia cookbooks I chose this one because all the recipes are designed to be healthy and the ingredients have some healing properties. Other Stevia books simply replaced all or half of the evil refined sugar with stevia while leaving all the fat and refined flours in the recipe.

Not in DePuydt's book! None of her recipes have sugar and they are all easily adaptable for people who prefer to be vegan, gluten-free, or dairy free. She replaces fat with apple butter/applesauce and she uses arrowroot powder instead of cornstarch. You'll see ingredients not found in conventional dessert books like tofu, agar-agar, date sugar, carob powder, brown rice flour, and soy flour. She also lists added sweeteners such as maple syrup, honey and molasses as optional. This book also differs from others of its kind because in the beginning it gives you the history and health benefits of Stevia. It tells you how to grow it, buy it, store it, and use it. The back of the book tells you how to use Stevia in place of sugar in your other cookbooks, substitutions for common ingredients, and measurements. You'll get food preparation tips, a shopping list, and a list of sources as to where to buy Stevia.

I read all the reviews on this book before purchasing. I was real excited when it arrived, but after going thru the book, I am disappointed. My husband is diabetic, and I am looking for low carb recipes. This book uses a lot of natural sweeteners my husband can not eat. Also, pie crust (carbs) etc. I can convert a lot of recipes using Stevia & that is probably what I'll do. So far, have not tried any of the recipes, since they will not meet my husbands needs.

Stevie is the new sweetener that is all natural and there are no calories. This is perfect if you are on a diet or are diabetic. I am going to slowly try the recipes and see if they are good enough to serve when I am entertaining.

We have friends and extended family members watching their sugar intake, and we have serious interest in having our household foods be as healthy as possible, and have become quite satisfied with Stevia over recent many months, so this book was a welcome addition for the playful chefs of our households, and as with most cooks, will most likely be modified over time, but everyone here, so far, seems pleased with this book addition to our kitchens. Bless you all.

This does include a tiny bit of stevia in the recipes - along with agave and other ":sweeteners" that would seriously hurt most diabetics with blood sugar problems. Also, most reading suggests that Agave is just about as bad as corn syrup....

I used this book more for meal ideas and not specifically because of Stevia. If you're looking to use Stevia a lot then this would be one way to assist you with that. I don't go to this cookbook very often and frankly use pinterest and others now instead.

Not quite what I was expecting. Recipies have lots of Honey in them. Honey is still sugar. While its a better option, stevia is still better by itself. Also lots of soy products. Soy causes cancer. While these are good recipes, I will find my self modifying them to use them.

The recipes I've tried so far are very good. There is a lot of instructive information at the beginning of the book and in the appendices, but I don't know that I'll put much of that to use. You'll be able to do most of the recipes with powdered stevia extract, but quite a number of the recipes also call for other kinds of stevia extract. Additionally, some recipes call for honey or maple syrup, so it's not a cookbook that is 100% sugar free, but close. I'm disappointed that the recipes don't have pictures. I should've looked for that in the product descriptions while I was shopping.
