Hi Norma Rae
Canola is mostly GMO so I have avoided it for years. They estimate 90% is GM. My naturopath suggested we just avoid it completely.

Here's a page on it:

I bet coconut oil would be delicious in this muffin recipe. Will have to try that

re: Stevia
The sweetness can be naturally extracted from the stevia leaf - they're usually run through a water process and the sweet extract is then dried and powdered.

I prefer buying the stevia leaf powder - although a green tint does come through in a gluten/sugar free white cake LOL. You do have to be careful where purchase powdered stevia leaf as some less reputable sources cut it with wheat grass.
