I was provided with this Steviva Blend sweetener, and I am really enjoying it. It is a blend of stevia and erythritol and is easy to use. Steviva Blend is twice as sweet as traditional sugar, so if you are using it as a sugar replacement, you would need half as much.
This recipe is super easy. I found that the quickest method is to put the room temperature ingredients into the blender and blend for a minute. I did make them with a hand mixer the first time, which required a bit more mixing time, but it still worked as well. It’s important that all three ingredients are room temperature so that they combine evenly.
I just bought this silicone muffin pan off of Amazon, and I love it. The last muffin tin I owned ended up i the trash after making egg muffins that stuck. It wasn’t worth it to me to scrub for ever. Plus, I’m kind of leery of aluminum, so I’m trying an alternative.
So the second time I made these keto cinnamon streusel egg loaf muffins, I added the streusel prior to baking. Like I thought it would, the cinnamon streusel sank into the egg, which was fine and still tasty, but didn’t give off the look I was going for. That is why the recipe says to add the streusel half way through baking.
When you pull the egg loaf muffins out of the oven, they will appear all big and puffed out of the muffin cup. Don’t worry, they will sink back down as they cool!

*Steviva sweetener is twice as sweet as traditional sugar. So when using it in a recipe, reduce the amount by half.
