    Absolutely amazing! It’s delicious and so simple. I’m not a huge fan of natvia but the spices helped to mask the aftertaste that I find using natvia. I did drop my oven lower as it’s fan forced and a hot oven (to 150C) and it took 55min.

  4. Hi! I’m brand new to the Keto diet. Most other recipes like this have called for Swerve sweetener… Is it ok to swap the Natvia for Swerve?

    Thanks!

    • Hi Valerie,

      We don’t have swerve in Australia, but you can certainly swap out any sweetener we suggest for one that you prefer. I hope that helps.
