Refined sugar free snacks- 14 wholesome recipes

Cooking and baking with 100% natural sweeteners is easier than you think.

Make your own refined sugar free snacks: From warming drinks to wholesome muffins, cookies and healthful energy bites, going (white) sugar-free in your kitchen is deliciously doable. Molasses is lower in sugar and carbs than white sugar, plus it adds flavour, some nutrients and a wholesome kind of sweetness to your recipes.

Fancy molasses is made from the pure juice of sugarcane that’s inverted into a syrup (not unlike the maple syrup making process). 

Fancy molasses isn’t a by-product of the refined sugar making process. It is simply pure sugarcane juice that is inverted into a syrup.


Fancy molasses can be used in place of, or in conjunction with, other natural sweeteners.

Do you have favourite recipes that call for honey, maple syrup or agave? Try substituting molasses for half of that sweetener and see where the flavour takes you. You’ll find that molasses is especially well-suited to chocolate and spices.

Not just for sweet recipes.

Molasses is versatile – use it instead of sugar in savoury dishes like sauces, dressings and marinades.

Eating well starts with wholesome ingredients. In this free eBook you’ll see how being selective about the sweeteners you choose will help you create food that is better for you and those you choose to share it with.

These 22 recipes for refined sugar free snacks include muffins, energy balls, sweet drinks, granola bars and cookies. Many of the recipes are gluten-free and/or vegan.

    Mt husband is an East Coaster and grew up on Crosby’s molasses. I did not and didn’t like the smell so I refused to eat them. His Grandmother made these delisious cookies and I loved them and would eat them until I was nearly sick and low and behold they were Molasses soft cookies. Now I use molasses in most things that call for sugar were possible.
