Diabetes-Friendly Sugarfree Apple Butter Recipe: Easy, Quick Apple Jam on Stovetop With No Added Sugar

I have never had apple butter in my life, nor had I dreamed of making it ever. Perhaps the Lord had some other plans, and I was directed to come up with an experiment to make apple butter on stovetop without any added sugar. The batch of apples was overly sweet. The idea sprung upon me to try my hands at sugarfree apple jam - yes, you may call it apple butter or apple jam. I am simply in love with the end product, which is far healthier and yummier than market junk.  This stuff is good enough to indulge in on a cold winter day - during breakfast as a spread on toast or just like that. One spoon is simply not enough to satiate your cravings for more. I bet it! It is so addictive!


So what makes the sugarfree apple butter special?
First things first - it's sugarfree - which gives it an edge over all of its competitors.It's sans preservatives and chemicals.It's yummy, yummy, and oh so so yummy!- trust me.It's kid-friendly and equally appetizing for adults and elders.It'…

Gluten-free Carrot Almond Cookie Fingers: Refined Sugar Free Baking Without Baking Powder, Soda

Welcome back to another gluten-free recipe. This almond cookie recipe is special because it uses the goodness of carotene-rich carrots, which is converted by the body to Vitamin A - essential for your eye health. Again, the refined sugar-free part makes it even healthier. The gluten-free cookie recipe uses olive oil, with the minimal use of butter or ghee. On top of it, this is another from my series on baking without baking powder, soda. What more could you ask for? Did  I say there is no refined flour here? This simple cookie recipe gives you an overload of fiber from nutty almonds, minerals from jaggery, vitamin E from extra virgin olive oil, and protein and carbs from brown rice flour.



All in all, this simple healthy cookie recipe packs a powerful punch in terms of health. You cannot stop munching on these crunchy bites. But I do not advise doing so, for a cookie is a cookie!

How to Make Tulsi Powder at Home: The Right Way to Get Dried Basil Leaves, Retain Green Color

Wondering why you actually need to dry tulsi or basil leaves? Well, the winters can be quite hard on basil plant. So you cannot get your basil produce from your sensitive plant during the cold season. Since basil is antiseptic, antiviral, and antibacterial, it is a potent remedy for cold attacks during winters. But since the plant is hardly available during this season, this is the best way to use basil in winters when you cannot find fresh produce anywhere. The cold season is harsh on basil and most leaves wither under such climatic conditions. But with its antiviral properties, basil is a healing herb that offers soothing relief in the cold season from viral symptoms.


This is the right way to keep your stock of basil and preserve tulsi when the weather is detrimental to the basil plant growth. Dried tulsi leaves or powder can be used in all recipes and remedies where fresh leaves are used. Make tulsi tea with these dried basil leaves and enjoy comforting relief from viral symptoms. …

No Oil, Butterless Hide and Seek Biscuit Cake: No Refined Sugar

Do you love cakes? We all do. Paro loves cakes too. This time I involved her in the cake making process and used homemade hide and seek biscuits to create a baked beauty that Paro sweetie loved. In fact, the batter itself was too yummy that Paro and I couldn't resist licking the bowl.


While my 2-year-old Paro was excited to make a cake, she loved the baked dark beauty that used homemade multigrain hide and seek.  It was a soft, crumbly, and moist cake that used no oil. But feel free to add 1-2 tbsp of oil to prevent it from crumbling or keep it in the refrigerator and cut it only when the cake has completely cooled down.

But the biscuit cake was too yummy and Paro loved it like anything. Perhaps she was excited that she had "made" the cake, so she thoroughly enjoyed it.
Ingredients 1 cup- powdered hide and seek biscuits (I have used homemade multigrain hide & seek)
2 tbsp- jaggery powder (more or less depending on your taste)
1 ripe banana
1/2 cup- milk
toasted nuts…
