trying to find a recipe for a truly sugar free dessert and half of these recipes call for 'two cups of blueberries' or 'eight ounces of chopped dates' or '2 cups of molasses' and I'm just https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9627011/photos/facepalm.gif

Is all you care about the sugar content - are you okay with sucralose, etc? Search for low carb desserts.

I've got a recipe for sugar-free cheesecake that's pretty good. And there's always sugar-free Jello pudding - just make it with cream instead of milk so there's no lactose either.

flourless brownies w/black beans and hazelnut meal, walnuts/cherries/dark chocolate chunks

pretty good but more like fudge than brownies

something that only uses splenda, rather than 'splenda sugar blend' (which is half and half sugar and splenda)

two weeks pass...

I want to do some baking, but I'm also trying to watch what I eat. But I loooooooooove baked goods.

Anyone got any favorite whole-grainy, healthful cakes or cookies that they can share? I don't really know what I'm looking for so at this point I'll take all comers.

one of my favourite cookie recipes isn't low-cal BUT it is super healthy:

2 tbsp chia seeds
1/3 c maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract

mix together, set aside

1 can black beans, rinsed and drain
1/3 c good unsweetened cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne
2 tbsp melted unrefined coconut oil

blend in food processor till dough forms, then add syrup mixture and blend again.

fold in:

1/3 c dried tart cherries
1/3 c walnuts
handful of bittersweet chocolate

spoon onto parchment lined baking sheet, or into muffin liners. bake at 375 for about 20 mins.

i made these for the millionth time last night, and they are so fudgy and good. they don't really hold together, though.

haven't tried this recipe yet, but it sounds good: http://ohsheglows.com/2012/08/06/oil-free-chocolate-zucchini-walnut-muffins/

not so worried about low cal per se, just more healthy ingredients - trying to get away from white flour and whatnot

they sound great, j! I've never baked with black beans before, I'm going to have to try this!

i swear, so good - you absolutely can't taste the beans, even the raw batter is delicious.

this website has relatively healthy baking recipes: http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/

i forgot:

sprinkle a little coarse sea salt on those cookies before you put them in the oven

ooohh good call :)

aw yay! they are totally my fave bc:
- healthy (if you plug the ingredients into a nutritional calc they have ridic amounts of vitamins and minerals)
- super easy to make
- super quick to make
- insanely delish

I switched the method around, and put the beans & the dry ingredients in the food processor, and then mixed the oil, the vanilla, the maple and the chia seeds together, and then slowly poured them into the dry mix, and then fold the nuts, cherries and chocolate in as normal.

they seem to hold together pretty well after baking, fudgy and deeelicious

one year passes...

Made one of these today:

Feared the worst as it didn't seem to rise at all but it is supposed to be like that, I think. It's very good.

That looks delicious.

Grain-free pizza crust baked and snarfed here. The recipe uses roasted mashed root veg (yellow sweet potato this time), eggs, tapioca starch. Crispy yet chewy, tastes yeasty even.
