    Have you tried this with leaving out the honey or maple syrup? Seems like you could eliminate and just used stevia??

      You could, but don’t freak out over the calories. Raw honey and maple syrup are very nutritious if enjoyed in moderation. 🙂

    This looks so yummy! Trying to figure out how to share the recipe on Facebook for my daughter. She has a backyard full of yummy raspberries. It’s tempting to go visit her just so I can pig out on them!
