Default What can I bake that doesn't use sugar?

Some fruit is allowed, some artificial sweeteners but not honey. Any ideas? Been snacking on bluecheese lately...

Scones, breads

I make sugar free scones just sweetened with bananas and dates - never use artificial sweeteners with anything

Figs, dates, and raisins add very nice sweetness to anything.

I remember when it was popular to sub out applesauce for oil in muffins, perhaps you could try that along with some sort of sweetener for the rest?

I use canned pumpkin puree. Its not as sweet as some of that other stuff, but it still adds body.

How do you make the scone part of sugar free scones? Sounds very nice.

Default Re: What can I bake that doesn't use sugar?

Not exact quantities as I make recipes up as I go along but approx:

8 oz wholemeal spelt flour
2 oz ground linseeds (I use this) or oat bran is also nice
3 teaspoons baking powder
3 oz softened butter or alternative
2 very ripe bananas mashed
cup milk (dairy or nut - may not need it all)
4 oz chopped dates
2 oz chopped walnuts (optional)
2 oz rolled oats
Large pinch salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg (optional)

Mix flour and bran/linseeds with salt and baking powder and rub in butter
Mash bananas, mix into the flour with dates/dates and some milk (add cautiously - don't want it too sticky)
Roll out onto board using oats to stop it sticking and add texture, roll into thick slab and cut out rounds.
bake till ready (maybe 15-20 mins)

Probably anything if it's made a certain way. I would Google recipes for diabetics, they should be low sugar.

A lot of diabetic recipes - including shop bought stuff - is just full of artificial sweeteners instead though. They just want to keep people addicted to sweetness. Better to cut it down or out altogether.

Ugh - i had added it to a sugar free chocolate cake - i have been farting for a week! I do not recommend sugar free cake mixes unless you intend to be a holiday parade balloon if you get my "drift"!
