Refined Sugar Free Brownies

refined sugar free brownie recipe, michaellas kitchen, gluten free brownies,

These refined sugar free brownies are a real treat – super gooey in the middle and hard on top, just as a brownie should be!

Instead of caster sugar, I used unrefined coconut sugar to sweeten them. Still a treat but a great alternative to a more ‘mainstream brownie’ recipe.  Continue Reading

This gluten free pancakes recipe is also refined sugar-free, dairy free and flour-less.

Growing up across North America, there were a couple of breakfast staples I loved as a kid. High on the list are fluffy buttermilk pancakes.

Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies which are refined sugar free, dairy free and wheat free.

Sugar Free Lemon and Poppy Seed Cake Recipe

Sugar Free Lemon and Poppy Seed Cake Recipe from michaellas kitchen by michaella mazzoni

I have been experimenting for a while to make a refined sugar free alternative to the ever so popular lemon and poppy seed cake. As I was using honey as an alternative to refined sugar, the cakes were coming out quite dense, with each cake I became more and more frustrated and hungry. Then it hit me, the idea I mean, not the heavy cakes, that would have knocked me out cold, ground nuts! I tried one last attempt using ground almonds instead of flour and it finally worked! The cake is super light and fluffy with a soft lemon flavour that leaves you with a light, summery aftertaste.
