Today we're kicking off a new Healthy Aperture Blogger Campaign with Truvia® Natural Sweetener and we can't wait to share some delicious recipes with you over the next two weeks!
If you're not familiar with it, Truvia® Natural Sweetener is a natural, zero-calorie sweetener made with stevia leaf extract, the sweetest part of the stevia leaf. You can use it just like sugar and it's great in your morning coffee, yogurt or cereal.
The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend limiting added sugars to less than 10 percent of total daily calories. Truvia® is a great option to help meet these goals. It's also an excellent option for people with diabetes or those looking simply looking to reduce sugar in their diets. One packet provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar.
You can find it in packets or a spoonable jar at grocery stores nationwide, as well as select club stores like Costco, Sam's Club and BJ's.
Since the holidays are now over, we know many of you are working on getting back into a morning routine. This Cranberry Almond French Toast Mug is the perfect breakfast for a busy morning. It's ready in just a few minutes and is packed with delicious flavors!

Cranberry Almond French Toast Mug
- 1 slice hearty whole grain bread, cut into cubes
- 1/4 cup liquid egg whites
- 1/4 cup lowfat milk
- 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Truvia® Natural Sweetener
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 Tablespoon dried cranberries
- 1 Tablespoon blanched, sliced almonds
- non-stick cooking spray
Lightly spray the inside of a microwave-safe medium sized coffee mug with cooking spray.
Add the egg whites, milk, vanilla, Truvia, and cinnamon to the mug and use a fork or whisk to mix the ingredients well.
Add the cranberries, almonds, and bread cubes and gently mix to coat all of the bread in the egg mixture.
Place the coffee mug in the microwave and cook for 45 seconds. Use a spoon to lightly mix the contents of the mug, then microwave again for 1 – 1 ½ more minutes or until the bread has just set and the egg and milk mixture is no longer runny.
Carefully remove the mug from the microwave and let sit for 3-5 minutes to cool slightly before eating. Serve with fresh fruit on the side.
