It's mostly what I use now. Took a little bit of trial and error to get the amounts right, but for me, it seems that about 1/2 teaspoon of the No Carbs blend = about 1/2 cup sugar.

If you want some of the bulking that E can provide in granulated form, what I've done is use the amount called for in sugar (i.e., if it calls for 1 cup sugar, I use 1 cup granulated E) and then add 1/4 tsp. of the NuNaturals powder. Since the E is about 70 to 80% as sweet as sugar, that seems to give the right ratio for my purposes.
Hi Charski I do use the NuNaturals No Carbs blend for my yogurt. Funny that it never even occurred to me to use it for baking. I only have it in the packets. I will have to to get a bottle of it so it would be easier to measure for baking purposes. So about 1 teaspoon = 1 cup of sugar. That seems very doable and easy. I will have to try that.

I will also have to keep in mind the blending of 1 cup of E and 1/4 tsp of NuNaturals. Thanks Charski and Iterry!

I wonder if it's cheaper to use the NuNaturals No carb blend or the E&S for baking. I will have to do some cost comparison.

Thanks everyone!
