    These nutty, moist cookies will cheer up mid-morning coffee or an afterschool snack. They are satisfying and packed full of healthy ingredients to restore flagging energy levels, without being too sweet. Barley flakes, which are slightly crisper than oatflakes, are available from most healthfood shops.

    Four ingredients result in sugar free shortbread biscuits that are perfect to enjoy with your tea. These aren't overly sweet. You can find the sugar substitute in larger supermarkets.

    Here's a classic – a crisp, shortbread pastry wrapped around a rich fig filling. The natural sweetness and full flavour of dried figs need little embellishment other than lemon juice to add a zesty tang.

    These are ‘slice-and-bake’ biscuits – the roll of dough can be prepared in advance and kept in the fridge. Then, whenever biscuits are wanted, you simply slice the roll into rounds, top with pecan nuts and bake.

    This is a very low-sugar shortbread biscuit recipe. I find that the addition of vanilla helps to give it a sweeter flavour somehow; you could also use a teaspoon of vanilla extract, if desired.

    Biscotti means twice baked, a reference to the technique that gives these Italian biscuits their characteristically hard texture. Traditionally they are served after dinner, with a glass of Vin Santo for dipping, but they are also delicious with fresh fruit salad or a cup of coffee or tea at any time of day.

    Just three ingredients come together for these sugar free cookies. You can find sucralose sweetener in large supermarkets. If your peanut butter has any sugar in it, you may want to decrease the amount of sweetener.

    5-ingredient, no bake brownies that are rich, chocolatey and slightly nutty with the flavour of fresh ginger that really brings them to life. Vegan, raw and gluten-free with no added sugar for a healthy treat or dessert.
