Back in 2016, I decided to no longer feature desserts made with refined sugar and instead, opted for natural sweeteners, including maple syrup, honey, agave and coconut sugar. These ingredients still satisfy your sweet tooth, but are tiny bit better for you.
Living in Vermont, it’s no surprise my favorite natural sweetener is maple syrup. It adds that special, smoky sweetness to Maple Sweetened Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins, chocolate-y Almond Flour Cupcakes, and Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies for a refined-sugar free cookie recipe.
If you’re looking for naturally sweet desserts to satisfy a special diet, you’ve come to the right place! Try Paleo Carrot Cake, gluten-free Almond Flour Banana Bread, vegan Almond Flour Cookies with Chocolate Chips, or any one of my foolproof Almond Flour Recipes that are perfect for beginners.
Naturally low sugar desserts are easy to make with the right ingredients. But if fruit-sweetened desserts are more your style, Apple Roses take on double-duty as a sweet treat and beautiful place setting to impress all your friends at your next get-together.
For those looking for a quick pick-me-up in a fun and healthy way, all of my easy smoothie recipes happen to be refined-sugar free, too.
