Many people use stevia in place of sugar because it does not raise your blood sugar levels as quickly. Some simply use 1/8 tsp of stevia in place of brown sugar, just as they would for white sugar. This adds the appropriate level of sweetness, but your baked goods may not brown properly. The next time a recipe calls for brown sugar, try mixing dark stevia extract with white granulated sugar. You'll be able to use less white sugar and your baked goods will maintain the proper texture.
