15 Stress-Relieving Home Baking Recipes
Healthy baking ideas that are sure to lift your mood.
When you’re stuck at home, baking can be a great source of stress and anxiety relief. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a keen baker or relatively new to the baking game, these easy and delicious home baking recipes have something for all levels. Typical baked goods found in shops and cafes will often contain high levels of refined carbs and sugars and aren’t likely to provide you with many health benefits. However, by simply switching a few ingredients out, you can make healthier twists on your favourite sweet treats. Whether you’re after brownies, cakes, tarts, or flans, you can make them all while keeping the calories and carbs down and the flavour high. Check out our tastiest home baking recipes below.
If you’re looking for convenience, indulgence and healthy treats generally, then our Brownie Mix could be the one for you. Making delicious brownies which are also low in calories, carbs and sugars has never been easier - all you need to do is add water and bake!
Brownie cakes, and more specifically this Black Forest Gateau Cake, are one of our new favourite desserts. Simply bake your Brownies Mix in a 6-inch circular tin, slice in half and fill with goodness! Everything is better with chocolate ganache as well, right? Just 187 calories per slice.
White chocolate and raspberry is a classic flavour combination that never fails to leave a sweet taste in our mouths. These are a perfect low-calorie sweet treat for any time of the day.
This is the cheesecake that just keeps giving. Unlike traditional baked cheesecakes, we have used our brownie mixture in place of the buttery biscuit base - and it works a treat! A little taste of New York that is creamy, indulgent, and better for you.
Brownies are usually a no-go territory on a keto diet - well, think again! These coconut brownies are rich, chocolatey and contain a fraction of the sugar of regular shop-bought alternatives.
Chocolate and orange will always have that nostalgic taste, whisking us back to Christmas and chocolate oranges in one bite. However, we believe this tart should be enjoyed all year round!
When it comes to flans, we're very much of the opinion: the thicker, the better. This is a super simple recipe with a really tasty result. Even better, you can have a door-stop sized wedge of this delicious dessert for under 1g of sugar.
Peanut butter lovers rejoice! These PB glazed brownies both look and taste way more indulgent than they are - you can enjoy a whole, hearty brownie for under 100 calories each.
Be careful, these macarons are incredibly moreish! The benefit is, they are so low in calories and sugar that you can afford to sneak a couple more.
These fibre-boosting brownies couldn’t be easier to make - all you need is a brownie mix, water, and a packet of fruit & nut trail mix. A perfect sweet snack that is good for both your gut and your tastebuds.
Strawberries and cream will always evoke tastes and scenes of summer, and these brownies are no different. The delicious cream-marbled brownies combine beautifully with tangy strawberries to make a tasty treat for just 71 calories each.
This retro dessert has been brought into the modern-day with a new delicious, low-sugar look. Enjoy all of the sweet tangy taste while keeping the calories and sugar down.
Chocolate squares filled with biscuits and marshmallows, you can’t really go wrong. This classic dessert has been given a low-calorie twist with our easy brownie mix - just 90 calories per brownie!
If you’re looking for a tasty way to customise your brownies then a layer of creamy peanut butter through the middle could be just the ticket. The combination of chocolate and peanut butter is a tried and tested classic and works brilliantly here.
It’s always good to have some frozen and dried fruit stocked in your cupboards and freezer, be it for smoothies or desserts! We’ve opted for raspberries and cherries in these brownies, but you can add the fruit of your choice and they will be equally delicious!
Although slightly different from cookies you’d usually get in a shop, these healthier alternatives lose nothing in the taste department and still satisfy those cravings. By blitzing up your Lo-Dough base in a food processor, you can use the fine breadcrumbs as a great low carb flour replacement.
