Health Tip: Baking With Less Sugar

Health Tip: Baking With Less Sugar

Don't be afraid to cut back

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.
