A December ‘Advent’-ure: Day 15

Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, chances are you will be surrounded by sweet treats this time of year. To indulge sensibly make your own.

Your challenge today…use these healthy baking tips.

  • Replace some of the sugar and fat in a recipe with puréed fruit.
  • Use smaller quantities of minimally processed sugars (eg. maple syrup, muscovado sugar)
  • Use at least half whole grain pastry flour along with ground flaxseed to give your sweets some fibre. This can help minimize the spike effect on blood sugar.
