No sugar: scones and carrot cake

The other afternoon, I was really wanting something sweet. So I did a little search online to find some no-sugar recipes: I found two amazing ones. This first one is called a scone, though I’d call it an oat-cake. I made some changes to the recipe as I didn’t have some of the ingredients and it was great. It is basically: flour, oats, egg, soy milk, apple sauce, baking powder and raisins. Oh – and a little cinnamon sprinkled on top. After I’d baked (and eaten some of it) I felt brave enough to make the no-sugar carrot cake.

This is the carrot cake. I never usually make carrot cake as I find lots of recipes have too many ingredients, but as this was no-sugar, I had to give it a go. I was pleasantly surprised; it was easy, healthy and tasty. It is sweetened with maple syrup and raisins, but I think carrot itself is quite sweet so that helps too. This recipe is definitely one I will repeat many times.
