Sugar-Free Matcha Red Bean Nerikiri Mooncakes (Egg-Free, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Nut-Free) 無糖抹茶紅豆日式練切月餅(無蛋,無奶製品,無麩質,無果仁)

I have friends (including myself) who are diabetic and need to control their diet so I’ve been making sugar-free mooncakes for several years (read about my blog posts, Sugar-Free Crispy Matcha Mooncakes With Sweet Red Bean Paste and Sugar-Free Traditional Cantonese Mooncakes for more details). Realizing that some other friends or their kids have food … Continue reading Sugar-Free Matcha Red Bean Nerikiri Mooncakes (Egg-Free, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Nut-Free) 無糖抹茶紅豆日式練切月餅(無蛋,無奶製品,無麩質,無果仁)

Sugar-Free White Bean Paste 無糖白豆沙餡

I made this white bean paste out of sugar substitute for my mooncake this year. Compared to Japanese white bean paste which is super sweet, this white bean paste is only lightly sweetened. The reduced sugar amount will make the bean paste dry and crumbly so oil is needed to make up for the moisture … Continue reading Sugar-Free White Bean Paste 無糖白豆沙餡

Black Sesame Glutinous Rice Balls (Sugar Free) 黑芝麻湯圓(無糖)

Here comes my sugar free glutinous rice balls recipe that was made with Lakanto golden monk fruit sweetener. When I attempted my first trial I made them a bit too big and my family members complained about the size. Later I adjusted the dough to filling ratios to 3:2 and they came out perfect. 這是使用羅漢果天然黃糖製作的無糖湯圓,第一次試做時做得太大粒,家人說吃完之後太飽了。後來EC把皮餡的比例調整為3比2,這個比例十分好! … Continue reading Black Sesame Glutinous Rice Balls (Sugar Free) 黑芝麻湯圓(無糖)

Sugar-Free Pai Bao (Hong Kong Style Sweet Milk Buns) 無糖湯種排包

I’ve been baking with erythritol recently (read about my blog posts, Sugar-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins, Sugar-Free Brown Rice Chiffon Cake and Sugar-Free Matcha Nougat with Almonds) and this time I used it for bread making. Apart from using natural sweetener, I’ve replaced the whipping cream in my Pai Bao recipe with unsweetened almond milk, which … Continue reading Sugar-Free Pai Bao (Hong Kong Style Sweet Milk Buns) 無糖湯種排包

Sugar-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins 無糖朱古力粒鬆餅

Here’s another sugar-free baked goods I made the past weekend. I tweaked my Double Chocolate Muffins recipe by replacing the sugar with natural sweetener. In order to further cut down the carbohydrate amount, one third of the flour is substituted with almond flour.

Sugar-Free Brown Rice Chiffon Cake (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free) 無糖糙米戚風蛋糕(無麩質,無奶)

The cake recipe I’m sharing today is free of sugar, gluten as well as diary. It’s basically just Sugar-Free Chiffon Cake with a slight twist in which I replaced the flour with brown rice flour and milk with soy milk. That’s it. Straightforward right? If you don’t have brown rice flour handy then rice flour … Continue reading Sugar-Free Brown Rice Chiffon Cake (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free) 無糖糙米戚風蛋糕(無麩質,無奶)

Sugar-Free Chinese Custard Filling 無糖奶黃餡

I’m sharing with you my sugar-free version of Chinese custard filling that I used for my sugar-free custard mooncakes I made this year (recipe to be followed). Here in the recipe, granulated sugar is replaced with a natural sweetener that is a blend of monk fruit and erythritol. The result was pretty good. There was … Continue reading Sugar-Free Chinese Custard Filling 無糖奶黃餡

Sugar-Free Matcha Nougat with Almonds 無糖抹茶杏仁牛軋糖

Last week I’ve written a blog post about Sugar-Free Snowflake Nougat which contains nuts, dried fruits and sugar-free biscuits. Dried fruits are high in fructose so are not too diabetic-friendly if consumed in great amount. For that reason, I’m gonna share with my readers a sugar-free nougat recipe that contains only roasted almond. I’ve also … Continue reading Sugar-Free Matcha Nougat with Almonds 無糖抹茶杏仁牛軋糖

Sugar-Free Snowflake Nougat 無糖雪花酥

I’ve finally come up with this sugar-free version of nougat successfully and I’m so excited to share this recipe with my readers! It is a popular snack called 雪花酥 or 雪Q餅 that I would just translate as Snowflake Nougat for now. Snowflake Nougat, from my understanding, is basically just Taiwanese nougat with nuts, dried fruits … Continue reading Sugar-Free Snowflake Nougat 無糖雪花酥

Sugar-Free Mango Mochi 無糖芒果糯米糍

Mangoes are in season and they are on sale almost everywhere recently. I bought a case of Ataúlfo mango two weeks ago for about $10. The price was even cheaper so I bought another case for $8.88 the past weekend. With this much mangoes you could eat them fresh or make desserts out of them. … Continue reading Sugar-Free Mango Mochi 無糖芒果糯米糍
