Sugar Free Dessert Mix

4 stars from 1 rating of Sans Sucre Baking Mixes

Sugar Free Dessert

Whether you are trying to cook for a diabetic, eat healthier meals, or are just trying to cut down on sugar, you may find it hard to make good desserts which satisfy a sweet tooth. One brand, Sans Sucre, has developed several mixes which can help. Made with Stevia, these mixes offer low fat versions of favorite treats like:

  • Sans Sucre Chocolate Fudge Brownie
  • Sans Sucre Milk Chocolate Brownie
  • Sans Sucre Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake
  • Sans Sucre Classic Blonde Brownie

While dieting and trying to reduce my sugar, I decided to try these out. While these are definitely not as good as my full-fat, full sugar baking treats, I do think these can satisfy that craving I get for something sweet, especially when the rest of the family is indulging. However, these do need a bit of dressing up from the regular mix to make them look and taste like something that doesn't seem second rate. I'm including my review of the different mixes as well as ideas for how to make them seem like a real dessert. I'm also including my own recipe for No Sugar (No Fat) Banana Bread for you to try also.

Serving No Sugar Desserts

Alone on a plate, the no sugar brownies and cake look a bit bare. However if you dress them up a little and put them on a nice plate, you can have a very elegant dessert which makes you feel like you are getting something you shouldn't have. To make my brownies taste and look better, I've used different combinations of:

  • Smuckers No Sugar Caramel Sauce
  • Hersheys No Sugar Fudge Sauce
  • No Sugar Whipped Cream
  • Nuts
  • No sugar ice cream
  • Chopped apples on the Sans Sucre Coffee cake
  • Sliced strawberries or fresh rasberries on the Sans Sucre Brownies

Quick and Easy Sans Sucre Brownie Mix

Quick and Easy: The Sans Sucre Brownie mixes are very quick and easy to make. You only need to add water and 2 TB of oil, and then bake them for about 25 minutes. So you can have them ready to eat in about half an hour. I'm keeping Sans Sucre on hand as a dessert I can prepare for company at the last minute if I find out they are on a sugar free diet.

Good Tasting No Sugar Dessert

The mixes taste sweet but not overpoweringly so. The taste is very rich, so that a small piece is very filling. The chocolate mixes almost taste like a chocolate mousse, and I know the company also makes a Sans Sucre Mousse Mix.

The mix is made with Stevia and people who don't like artificial sweeteners may not like the taste, but if you are used to them, like I am, you probably will find it plenty sweet for you. I did not notice any aftertaste. The only thing I did not like was the fact that it is very dense and tends to stick to your mouth, kind of like peanut butter. That is actually not a bad thing though, because it made me take smaller bites and the brownie lasted longer.

Serving Sugar Free Desserts

I dressed up the brownie with a little sugar free caramel.  You can also add sugar free ice cream or whipped cream.

No Sugar, low fat and low calorie dessert

The 2 TB of fat you add to the mix means they are not fat free, but they are low in fat. I will probably try making the mix with applesauce in place of the oil. I'm pretty sure it would turn out well that way.Although the box says it is not a low calorie dessert, the 1/7 of a pan serving is a pretty big piece for just 130 calories. In fact, I'd probably cut the brownies into about 10-12 pieces for serving, so each one would probably be only 100 calories.

Rich Tasting No Sugar Low Fat Dessert

Both the Fudge Chocolate and Blonde Brownies baked up about the same and had a similar texture. I had the feeling that you could probably put a Tablespoon of Unsweetened chocolate into the Sans Sucre Blonde Brownie mix and turn it into no sugar Fudge Brownies. They don't cut very well and the brownie tends to stick to the knife.

The Sans Sucre Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake was a bit lighter and rose higher. The rich taste makes this feel more like you are eating a desert than many of the packaged sugar free cookies and other desserts I've tried. Because you bake it yourself, it really does have a better home made taste.

No Sugar (No Fat) Banana Bread Recipe

Another dessert I've enjoyed is my own recipe for banana bread which I've adopted to be sugar free. I was very surprised the first time I made it because no one in my family guessed that I'd changed the recipe.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 45 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: 2 8 inch loaves or 32 slices

Ingredients

  • 4 bananas, mashed (or 1 to 1 1/2 cups any fruit)
  • 2 eggs or egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup oil, (or 1/4 cup apple sauce for fat free)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup no calorie sweetener for baking, (Stevia or equal work well)
  • 1/2 cup milk, (I sometimes add another banana instead)
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tea. vanilla
  • 1 tea. salt
  • 1 tea. baking soda
  • 1 tea. baking powder

Instructions

  1. Mash bananas and mix in bowl until well blended. Add eggs and oil (or applesauce), milk and vanilla. Mix until blended.
  2. Add sugar substitute, flour, soda and salt. Mix until just blended and most throughout. Don't over mix.
  3. Pour batter into two 8" loaf pans. Bakke at 350 oven for about 45 min. to 1 hour. Banana bread is done when top springs back when gently touched.

More No Sugar Dessert Recipes

If you don't like bananas, you can use the same recipe to make other kinds of breads or muffins. Just replace the amount of bananas with the other kind of fruit. I'd try:

  • No Sugar Blueberry bread (1 cup blueberries)
  • No Sugar Strawberry bread (1 cup sliced strawberries)
  • No Sugar Pumpkin Bread (1 cup mashed canned pumpkin)
  • No Sugar Apple Bread (Use 1 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup chopped apples)
  • No Sugar Zucchini Bread (2 cups of grated Zucchini and 1 cup applesauce)

Of course all of these taste great just as a snack or even for breakfast, but you can turn them into a dessert by serving them sliced with some of the toppings I suggested above. A little fresh fruit and a small amount of no sugar whipped cream or no sugar ice cream will taste great.

No Sugar No Fat Banana Bread

I tried it again and replaced the oil with apple sauce for No Sugar, No Fat Banana Bread. The results were not quite as good since the bread fell flat after it came out of the oven. However, I still had to take pictures fast because my family ate up all the loaves in one day! I loved the taste myself, even though it had a dense texture. It definitely did fill up my need for sweets.
