Your baked goods can be sweet delights without the need to add tons of sugar.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests how to trim the sugar in your recipes:
- When baking cakes, cookies or bread, cut down on sugar used by one-third.
- Instead of icing a cake with frosting, use slices of fruit or a fruit puree.
- In lieu of sugar, use spices that boost sweetness without the calories. Examples include vanilla, peppermint, cardamom, allspice, cinnamon or nutmeg.
