You, Or Someone You Love, Has Sugar Problems

Now the pressure is on you for healthy, sugar free cooking/baking.

That’s how it was for both me and my mum. We both shared the responsibility of making sure I wasn’t sick from sugar...

...yet the responsibility seemed heavier than just “making sugar free food”.

Shopping becomes brain-heavy, and eating out in groups always makes you feel awkward (asking the waitress what's "in" every meal). You even have to special-order certain foods online!

Heck, I remember not even being able to eat a bagel because there was too much sugar in it. Preposterous!

It’s not just about sugar free cooking/baking anymore. Not in our sugar-laden culture; it’s a lifestyle change. And it's often a worrisome lifestyle change when someones health is at risk!

Well worry no more! My name is Andrew Muller, and I’m going to show you how to bake, cook, and shop: worry-free, and sugar-free.



What Does This Site Have To Offer You?

Well of course, there's the obvious...

...RECIPES! Oodles and oodles of recipes! But on top of that, I also have:

I'll also have a cookbook planned for the future, but for now I'm just working on growing this site as it slowly "takes off".


Who Is This Website For?

If you, or one of your loved ones is:

  • diabetic
  • sugar intolerant
  • trying to increase the length and quality of your life by keeping a healthy body

Then this site could be a really great resource for you.

If you have very specific, dangerous health issues (such as Diabetes), I recommend you look into each of the above sweeteners before you make any of my recipes.

Just because these recipes might be a good option for you, doesn't mean you should throw all logic out the window; pay attention to what you are eating, as always. Check your blood sugar levels (as always).

This website is not meant to contain authoritative medical advice, but rather, helpful speculation on what might (or might not) be a good fit for your diet.

Some Untrue Myths About Sugar Free Recipes

They taste worse than normal recipes.

They aren't sweet.

Artificial sweeteners like Splenda or Aspartame are healthier than sugar.

The ingredients are expensive.


Some Untrue Myths About Sugar Free Recipes

  • They taste worse than normal recipes.
  • They aren't sweet.
  • Artificial sweeteners like Splenda or Aspartame are healthier than sugar.
  • The ingredients are expensive.

The 4 Main Sweeteners That I Use Are:

Agave Nectar: I only recommend the Volcanic Nectar brand of Agave Nectar, as they are the only brand I know of that doesn’t dilute their Agave with unnatural byproducts, and they use Agave plants grown only in the fertile volcanic sands of Guadalajara.

Although there is some controversy around the amount of Fructose in Agave Nectar, the Volcanic Nectar stays true through testing every time.


Stevia: Easily the most natural and best-for-you sweetener around. I only use the Herbal Advantage brand of Stevia, as it is the least bitter sweetener around.

Stevia is 300x sweeter than sugar too! Unfortunately, because it is not the same density as sugar (it also can be a little bit bitter) it is only useful in certain baking projects.

I often combine Stevia with another natural sugar substitute in my recipes.


Erythritol: A sugar alcohol that is derived from corn and other fruits/vegetables. It is the natural alternative that is the “most like sugar”.

The main disadvantage though is that it often has a cooling effect (kind of like Dentyne Ice gum) that can make it difficult to work with.

The biggest advantage to Erythritol is that it caramelizes! Which is such a big deal! No other natural sweetener that is commercially available today can Caramelize.


Coconut sugar is a great alternative to brown sugar. It ranks at about 35 on the glycemic index, which is safe for diabetics.

It really is one of the easier sweeteners to use in your recipes. It reacts to baking veeeeerry similar to brown sugar, and it's more nutritious too! 

As with every sweetener, make sure to do your own research if you have any important medical issues. Some people still doubt how "healthy" coconut sugar is. It is true that the amount of testing done on coconut sugar is not as comprehensive as I might hope, so I don't use it on as many recipes as I might use the above 3 sweeteners.

The Models Of Sugar Free

Now there are a few different types of sugar free out there. Some people’s bodies, from IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), Diabetes, or other reasons, need to avoid:

  1. Unnatural Processed sugars (but can still have natural sugars and artificial sugar substitutes such as Splenda)
  2. Unnatural Processed sugars + Natural sugars (but can still have artificial sugar substitutes)
  3. Unnatural Processed sugars + Natural sugars + Artificial sugar substitutes (avoid all 3)
  4. Unnatural Processed sugars + Artificial sugar substitutes (but can still have natural sugars).

I know that looks a little complex, but I’m sure you get the gist of it: there are different styles of sugar free!

At Easy Sugar Free Recipes, I will be making recipes that have NO Unnatural Processed Sugars, NO Artificial Sugar Substitutes, but will still contain Natural Sugars that come from the earth.

I am completely against artificial sweeteners such as Splenda or Aspartame. I have personally found that these sweeteners have given me some very terrible experiences; I will never recommend them on this site.

My Journey

I'm really not as angry as I look in this picture

All websites are created for a purpose, and although I want to help as many people as possible live healthy, sugar free lifestyles, this website also helps benefit me mentally, spiritually, and economically.

If you're like me and have knowledge or experience that others would want, I can't speak highly enough about SBI!. It's allowed me to bake my passion for sugar-free recipes into an income-generating part-time hobby. Here's how I did it.

I hope my story can also be some sort of inspiration for you!
