Whatever the issue – diabetes or obesity – cutting down on sugar does not necessarily mean boring!!! Muffins, cakes, cookies and snacks can very much be part of your sugar free menu. In fact, sugar free cooking can be as easy and fulfilling.

Try some guilt-free cooking with artificial sweeteners, natural honey or Sugar Free to prepare rich and decadent recipes.

Natural sugar substitutes such as maple syrup or golden syrup can be used for baking. Low in calories, sugar free recipes can be easily incorporated in preparing snacks and goodies for children; they wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.

Baking tips

1. Additional use of vanilla accentuates the sweetness in a dish

2. Override fruits can add the natural sweetness, flavor and moisture in baking

3. Use sugar as sprinkle on pies (filling can be prepared with fresh dried fruits only)

4. Spices add the natural sweetness to dishes; try cinnamon, cloves or nutmeg to intensify the flavors

5. Boil fruit juices to one-third of their original volume to achieve the sweetness and concentrated flavor.
