Here is a Collection of Low Sugar or Sugarless Recipes from this website, Peach-Depot.com.
Most of us who LOVE fruit, also love to bake and cook using fruit recipes. Well, at least I do!
Peaches and other fruits, such as raspberries, and strawberries can be used in salads, smoothies, juices, etc., or baked into scrumptious pies, tarts, muffins, cakes, and so on.
The problem I have is that eating sweet foods goes hand in hand with guilt feelings that I should not be eating these sweets, and instead I should be consuming a healthier diet!
The good news is that it is possible to stick to a healthier diet and cut back on the amount of processed sugar we eat without completely denying ourselves delectable treats that we so often crave.
There are no doubt many recipes contained in this website which can easily be altered to create a recipe with little or no added sugar.

The recipes listed on this below have been created specifically with a diabetic or a calorie reduced diet in mind.

One method of reducing your sugar intake is to use a "sweetener" instead of granulated sugar. That way you can enjoy sweetness even while you are trying to reduce your sugar intake.
When baking, however, granulated sugar is very important. It not only provides flavour, but affects volume, moisture, texture, and even the colour of your baked goods.
When baking, substituting other ingredients for sugar can prevent the baking from turning out the way you intended.
Even when using small amounts of granulated sugar in combination with sugar substitutes, it's the combination of other ingredients that will create the successful results that a larger amount of sugar normally achieves.
The cooking properties of sugar substitutes are not the same as those of "non-nutritious" sugar, so sugar substitutes work best in recipes where sugar is used primarily for sweetening.
Try using half sugar substitute and half granulated sugar when baking your favourite recipes.
Another tip to make the baked goods taste sweeter, is to use flavour enhancers such as orange or lemon zest or extract.
The zest and the extract brings out the fruit sweetness in a dish and heightens the flavours of the ingredients used.
Also, try using sweet-enhancing spices such as cinnamon, allspice, ginger, and nutmeg. These spices are known to intensify flavours in a recipe with less sugar.
Taking advantage of the natural sweetness of dried, chopped fruit instead of the candied variety to add to your favorite baked goods is another way to reduce sugar in recipes.
If you have a food dehydrator, you can dry your own fruit.
