Enjoy guilt-free treats with Jamie Oliver's "favorite baking book of the year."

The healthy recipes for these beautiful baked goods cut down on sugar or cut it out altogether, thanks to the imaginative use of natural ingredients. As a bonus, many of the recipes are also gluten-free and dairy-free.

Discover how to bake more than 70 delicious low-sugar and sugar-free recipes, including healthier versions of favorites such as carrot cake, muffins, gingerbread, and hot cross buns. Every recipe tempts with a stunning photo of the finished cake or baked good.

The recipes contain little or no processed sugar, instead relying on easy-to-source sugar substitutes and natural sugar alternatives, such as honey and seasonal produce. Foraged edible flowers adorn decadent chocolate muffins, and freshly picked berries peek out from between the layers of beautiful cakes, creating a feast for the eyes, too.

Written by Carolin Strothe—cook, food stylist, and author of the award-winning blog Frau Herzblut—and her husband, Sebastian Keitel, the book explains the benefits of a low-sugar diet and debunks the myth that healthy baking must come with a compromise. Carolin includes a seasonal calendar to help you choose the best ingredients; basic recipes for pantry essentials such as applesauce and cashew icing; and tips to help you elevate the look of your creations using natural colorings. With Naturally Sweet Baking, you can cook and enjoy treats without a sugar overload.
