Half the Sugar, All the Fun
These rich, fudgy brownies really hit the mark—you’ll never even notice the “missing” sugar.

Added sugar is everywhere—in yogurts and bottle dressings, boxed mac and cheese and pre-sliced bread, and even in organic packaged granola. The health implications of sugar are vast, from cardiovascular disease to type 2 diabetes. With all this sugar lurking, how can you avoid it and still make quick, flavorful, meals your kids will love? Enter Half the Sugar, All the Love by award-winning cookbook author Jennifer Tyler Lee and Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Stanford Anisha Patel, MD, MSPH. Topics covered include debunking sugar myths, how to avoid hidden sugars, and how to cook and bake low-sugar, kid-friendly recipes (such as No-Bake Peanut Butter Energy Bars, BBQ Chicken Pizza, and ThreeIngredient Strawberry Jam). Here’s one of the authors’ favorites from the cookbook—Double Chocolate Brownies.
