I loooove baking, but I hate using refined sugar or products such as Splenda. These recipes are sweetened with honey, maple syrup, or unrefined sugar such as sucanat or raw (demerara) sugar. Many of them are made with whole grains as well.
This is from the Horn of the Moon Cookbook. I hate to throw anything out, so when fruit gets over ripe, I make breads. This is really good for breakfast. Adding cinnamon and raisins to the batter would be good too. Make sure you mix everything together well.
This is a healthy carrot cake that is also delicious. I made this cake for my daughter's 1st birthday. It frosts up nice with cream cheese frosting. I tinted our frosting pink with slices of beets stirred into the frosting.
As part of the 'Zaar World tour, I was looking for dessert recipes suitable for Rosh Hashanah. The original caome from allrecipes.combut I've made a number of changes to make this moist and tender cookie not only healthier but more tasty. These are so good, you'll love them holiday or no holiday. Kids will especially love them and you'll enjoy sneaking a little veggie into their afternoon snack.
Yes, I know there's a glut of apple cake recipes here already. I want mine. Mine has what I think most apple cakes lack - a TON of apples. I use 5 large apples, even if it's a bit more than 4 cups. There's a trick to getting the cake just chock-full of apples. Here it is.
Bananas are one of America's favorite fruits. They help to strengthen the stomach lining and are good for soothing indigestion. Most banana bread recipes are saturated with butter and sugar. This one uses a small amount of canola oil instead - which is much better for your heart - and honey, which of course means lots of flavor. Don't use regular whole-wheat flour. It is too heavy for this recipe. Look for whole-wheat pastry flour instead.
My cousin got this from a German site and sent it to me. This is really quick and easy, very tasty too. A hot dessert or side dish great on its own or with vanilla ice cream or as a side for a spicy curry dish. If you are dieting you can substitute apple or pear nectar for the whipping cream.
I was searching for something sugar-free to take to a bake sale, and came across a recipe similar to this online. This is my modified version of that recipe. These sold quickly at the bake sale! They have a granola-like appearance and are soft and chewy. A little cinnamon added in might be good, too.
Waffles without oil or sugar and my husband likes them. Original recipe from drweil.com which says it is from The Healthy Kitchen - Recipes for a Better Body, Life and Spirit by Andrew Weil, MD and Rosie Daley (Knopf).
These muffins are delicious and loaded with fiber and heart-friendly oat bran. They may truly be the breakfast of champions. You may use Granny Smith or Gravenstein apples, but feel free to try your favorite green apple. You can freeze what you don't consume right away for a later date.
One of the principal crops of some African countries is peanuts. They are nutritious and hardy, making them a first-rate survival food. In this recipe peanuts and highly prized honey are combined to make a sweet African treat.
