Any way to substitute stevia

Any way to substitute stevia for sugar?

Try organic palm sugar if

Try organic palm sugar if you're not a fan of processed white sugar(or sugar in the raw or honey)I've always found that stevia has a chemical aftertaste... Maybe its just me idk if you try the honey make sure to use the palest you can find as the darker the honey the bolder the flavor(something like buckwheat would really interfere with the flavor profile) try tupelo if you can get your hands on it

Fantastic......Yumsters !
