I just read that you can cut the sugar in baked goods with potato flakes. I have not yet tried this, so I will have to report back on the results. Apparently you can cut the required amount of sugar in a recipe in half, and replace it with potato flakes (this WILL NOT work with potato pearls). If you do this with cookies, they will not brown as well. In chocolate chip cookie recipes, use all of the brown sugar called for in the recipe, but replace the granulated sugar. This is said to work well with oatmeal or applesauce cookies, brownies, and quick breads. If this works well, I will be excited about this little tip to reduce sugar!
