    Those are some dark and gorgeous looking brownies! I’ve just got to try them, they sound amazing! (and it’s been way too long since I’ve made brownies… definitely feeling a deficiency). :)

      Thanks so much! Stevia is a sweetner used in place of sugar. You can google the word ‘stevia’ and you will see many brands and many forms of stevia as it comes in powder and liquid form and is made my many companies. My favorite brand is NuNatural Stevia. Let me know if that answers your question or if you need any further information just let me know and I’m more than happy to help you! Thank you for your kind comment and have a great day!
