ATK has a recipe book called "Naturally Sweet" that may be what you're looking for.
Will look for that book, thanks! The dilemma is having a new friend who eats only organic, no wine, no sugar, no honey, no artificial sweeteners of any kind so I'm trying to figure out what to give her when she comes over for a cup of tea or for lunch.

If a recipe calls for applesauce to sweeten, it still has sugar in it, it's just in the form of fructose. Another option if apples are acceptable to your friend, is to use frozen apple juice concentrate to sweeten a recipe naturally.

If something truly has no sugars or artificial sweeteners, it's not going to taste like dessert. Is your friend open to using natural ingredients that are not 'sugar' as in granulated cane sugar? There is coconut sugar, maple or agave syrup, stevia, erythritol, and many other alternatives to plain cane sugar.

I have a great suggestion! Baking with Less Sugar by Joanne Chang of Flour Bakery and Cafe in Boston. I have all three of her cookbooks (this is the only low sugar one) and her recipes are well-written. I've not cooked a dud yet from one of her books.

Oh, Id give her some mixed nuts, a piece of good cheese, or a bowl of fresh berries with a dollop of organic yogurt on top.
