Notes

I used a combination of vanilla rice + plain hemp protein powders.

How much stevia you need is dependent on what type you’re using. Start with a couple of pinches, taste before the egg is added to the mix, then add a bit more. Alternatively, you could use 1/3 cup coconut sugar or other sugars.
