There’s nothing our sweet tooth looks forward to other than dessert. There’s hardly an end-of-the-meal treat that doesn’t explode with sweetness. Cakes, pudding, cookies, mousse – all of them are distinctively sweet.
However, that doesn’t mean people who can’t handle sugar shouldn’t enjoy desserts. There is an exciting plethora of sugar free desserts you can explore while avoiding sugar. Moreover, you can make them at home!
This post outlines several amazing sugar free desserts. They all capture the essence of a dessert – rich, delicious, and luxurious – without relying on sugar. Simple and easy, you can replicate them in your kitchen.
1. Sugar-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie
It’s inarguable that chocolate chip cookies are a classic sweet treat. The added sugar and chocolate chips are enough to tip the delicate sugar scale.
Thus, to make this recipe sugar-free, you’ll replace them with sugar free chocolate chips and any granulated sweetener, such as erythritol. Besides that, you’ll also need butter, ground flax meal, water, almond flour, baking soda, and salt.
For more texture and flavor, add walnuts. Make and bake as you would any cookie. Baking time varies depending on how crispy or soft you want your cookies. Now you have a sugar AND grain-free treat!
2. Sugar-Free Oatmeal Cookies
Some people prefer cookies with more texture and fewer chocolate flavors. Oatmeal cookies fit the bill perfectly, but we’ll up the game with this sugar-free, gluten-free, and vegan-friendly version.
These oatmeal cookies need ground flaxseed, over-ripe bananas, coconut oil, vanilla extract, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, rolled oats, and oat flour. You must have mixed nuts, seeds, dates, and raisins for the textures and flavors.
The recipe’s inclusivity makes this sugar-free treat perfect for get-togethers. Thus, whichever diet or medical conditions your loved ones have, they can enjoy the same cookie as everyone with no worries or guilt!
3. Sugar-Free Cheesecake
Cheesecake is among the most luxurious and delicious desserts out there. Although typically loaded with sugar, many sugar-free recipes, like this one, capture the essential richness and silky-smooth creaminess of this treat.
Moreover, this recipe is a no-bake! Thus, even without an oven, you can easily make this for yourself and your family. You need ingredients for the three components: base, filling, and topping.
Although this recipe still uses classic ingredients like cream cheese and lemon juice, it made many substitutions to avoid sugar and gluten. There are almond and coconut flours and sugar free sweeteners.
4. Keto Fluffy Chocolate Mousse
Eating chocolate mousse is like having a cloud in your mouth. It’s indulgent, fluffy, and light, simply bursting with unique chocolate flavors. Did I get you drooling?
Well, your temptation and envy are not for naught. I’ve found a great keto-friendly and sugar-free chocolate mousse recipe for you to try. It needs only three ingredients: heavy whipping cream, 100% unsweetened cocoa powder, and a low-carb powdered sugar substitute.
If you want more of the decadent chocolate flavors, you can add some dark chocolate chips or shavings. You can also use this as a chocolate whipped cream topping for other desserts.
5. Sugar-Free Brownies
Nothing gets better than an incredibly indulgent and fudgy brownie. It has the perfect flavors and textures. Want a taste of this heavenly dessert?
This sugar-free dessert recipe needs only six ingredients, and you have fresh, delicious brownies in less than an hour. These ingredients are butter, powdered sweetener, egg, unsweetened cocoa powder, dark chocolate, and almond flour.
You can eat your fudgy brownies as they are or top them with sugar-free icing. This recipe makes sixteen brownie servings and takes only 30 minutes to complete. That time includes prep and baking already.
6. Sugar-Free Banana Cake
I often had banana cake as a snack or dessert. It has an incredible natural sweetness and flavor from the bananas, and I want to translate that goodness into a sugar-free and dairy-free recipe.
Besides all the nutrients in this cake, what makes this recipe better is it includes a healthy cream cheese frosting. The banana cakes I eat typically do not have that, so I find this extra special.
To make this banana cake, you’ll need whole wheat flour, powdered sugar-free sweetener, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, oil, almond milk, mashed bananas, and cream cheese frosting.
7. Sugar-Free Chocolate Cake
Chocolate is the quintessential flavor. Brownies, cakes, mousse, ice cream – nearly every sweet treat has a chocolate version. But the most famous has to be the decadent chocolate cake.
Thus, we cannot do without a sugar free chocolate cake recipe. It makes the same decadent and delicious dessert without all the heavy calories, sugar, and fat that usually keeps many from enjoying it.
To make this chocolate cake, you’ll need all-purpose flour (GF), granulated sweetener, cocoa powder, baking soda, apple cider vinegar, vanilla, unsweetened applesauce, and water. If you want frosting, the post links to a healthy recipe.
8. Sugar-Free Carrot Cake
A healthy cream cheese frosting elevates many sweet treats. One dessert improved by it is the banana cake above, and the second is this sugar free carrot cake made with almond flour.
Even with the substitutions, this cake is as soft, moist, and flavorful as the classic carrot cake. It’s much healthier, fully maximizing added carrots, as the recipe is keto-friendly, low-sugar, and gluten-free.
To make this recipe, you’ll need a sugar alternative, butter, vanilla, blackstrap molasses, pineapple extract, eggs, almond flour, baking powder, and cinnamon. You’ll also need salt, carrots, pecans, and cream cheese frosting.
9. Sugar-Free Apple Pie
Is it apple season already? With their naturally sweet flavor and distinct tartness, apples make amazing desserts. But that doesn’t mean you will miss out on the fun.
Making apple pie is a beloved tradition you don’t have to miss. This recipe is sugar-free, low-calorie, and straightforward. Thus, if you’re not an expert and want to avoid sugar, you can still enjoy this treat.
To make the pie, you’ll need apples, sweetener, flour, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, lemon juice, vanilla, butter, egg, milk, and sugar-free pie crusts. For a gorgeous look, make a lattice crust with embossed patterns.
10. Sugar-Free Tiramisu
Do you have a party to impress? There are a few sugar free desserts as stunning and delicious as this tiramisu from In Love With Cake. It has all the intense and creamy flavors but minus the sugar.
This dessert has many sugar-free components: ladyfingers, Huehuetenango coffee soaking syrup, mascarpone and vanilla cream, and whipped mascarpone crémeux. Each element requires specific ingredients, which you can see through the post.
Besides those, you’ll also want some decorations to make your tiramisu extra pretty. You can use cocoa powder, tempered milk chocolate crescents, edible flowers, and gold leaf.
11. Sugar-Free Strawberry Granita
This refreshingly good strawberry granita is the perfect dessert to end a summer meal. A granita is similar to a snow cone, thus, excellent for a warm day. Cool and packed with flavors, it’s naturally sweet and easy to make.
To make this strawberry granita, you’ll need water, Stevia, strawberries, and fresh lemon juice. Stevia, a natural sugar substitute, comes from the Stevia rebaudiana plant. This recipe uses the type and brand with neutral flavors.
Unlike ice cream, you don’t need special equipment like a churner or ice cream maker. You only need your trusty blender and freezer.
12. Sugar-Free Almond Butter Cups
Have those mini peanut butter cups ever tempted you? Now you can finally have some of that goodness because these almond butter cups are just as decadent, creamy, and delicious.
These cups need only five ingredients and no refined sugar. They’re full of flavor and sweetness from the coconut oil, cocoa powder, sweetener, nut butter, and coarse sea salt. You can use maple syrup or agave as a sweetener.
Assemble these butter cups as you would Reese’s mini cup – with the nutty goodness hidden inside like a surprise. Although this recipe uses almond butter, you can also use peanut butter.
13. Sugar-Free Pudding
Do your family and friends prefer a simple and clean dessert? This sugar-free vanilla pudding has a sleek white look and pure flavors that sweep you off. It’s sugar free, so you can enjoy it guilt-free.
Moreover, it’s easy to make as you need only seven ingredients. These are sweeteners, cornstarch, salt, milk, egg yolks, butter, and vanilla extract. For the granulated sweetener, you can use any of your preferred sugar alternatives, like allulose or erythritol.
If you want a flavored pudding, the recipe also includes suggested variations. You can have lemon, chocolate, banana, cheesecake, or butterscotch.
14. Sugar-Free Tart
We’re ending our compilation of delicious recipes on a sweet note with this rich blueberry tart. Although there’s no sugar added, the naturally sweet flavor of the berries makes this treat taste like heaven.
This dessert has three components: the crust, filling, and blueberry sauce topping. To make the crust, you’ll need almond flour, desiccated coconut, Sukrin Gold, xanthan gum, ground ginger, salt, and butter.
