  1. Why do you use both erythritol and stevia? I noticed the same on your avocado brownie recipe.

    • That is how I adjusted the taste; when I made these brownies the first time I used only Erythritol but the taste was not so good because of the dark chocolate, and I don’t want to add any more dry ingredients like another 1/4 cup of Erythritol for not making the brownies gummy. so, I add 20 drops of stevia and the taste was so good. You don’t have to use the stevia drops if you don’t want to. Also, you can try to add 1/4 cup of Erythritol and see the result.
