Refined-Sugar Free Sweet Treats for a Healthier Start to New Year

by Rohit Bumrah Writter

The holiday season is filled with guilt-free indulgence of rum-soaked fruit cakes, crinkle cookies, gingerbread, etc. While these delicious treats are totally worth enjoying, it can seem a little too much of a sugar-rush in the end.

A refined-sugar detox is a great way to start the New Year. While eliminating anything sweet might seem challenging, you can certainly enjoy some sweet treats with refined-sugar alternatives.

Check out these sweet treat recipes without any added refined sugar:

Rice Pudding

Use the best quality basmati rice to make this pudding. Wash and soak the rice in warm water for 20 minutes. Pour in 200 ml of coconut milk and stir in the soaked rice, vanilla bean paste, 1 stick of cinnamon, and a generous grating of nutmeg. Add some chopped raisins and unsweetened applesauce to the dish. Put the lid on and allow the rice to cook on medium heat. Once the rice pudding is cooked, pour it into bowls and top with some chopped pistachios and dried rose petals. This recipe is diabetes-friendly and healthy.

Sweet Potato Brownies

Everyone loves a gooey and fudgy brownie, warm out of the oven. These brownies are vegan, gluten-free, and healthy. Soak some dates in warm water. Blend the dates and unsalted butter. Slowly mix in vanilla bean paste, baking powder, roasted sweet potato, a pinch of sea salt, ½ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, 1 cup of almond flour, ½ cup of almond milk, orange zest, 1 tablespoon of dark chocolate chips and 1 portion of a flax egg. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and spray some coconut oil. Pour in the mix and top it with chopped walnuts. Bake it at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool the brownies and cut them into squares. 

Cranberry Cookies

Store-bought cookies are also loaded with sugar and refined flour. This cookie recipe is gluten-free and delicious. Start with mixing 2 cups of oat flour, a pinch of salt, 100 gm butter, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, ½ cup of black raisins, ¼ cup dried cranberries, 1 tablespoon of almond milk, baking powder, 1 flax-egg, coconut sugar, and ½ cup melted unsweetened almond butter. Mix in to form the cookie dough. Cover it in cling film and refrigerate it for 3 hours. Form small cookie balls and bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes. Once done, transfer the cookies to a cooling rack. Enjoy these cookies with your favourite cup of tea.

These refined sugar free recipes can be made in a bigger batch and enjoyed throughout the week.
