Help a baking fiend cut out refined sugar.

I have decided to cut refined sugar out of my diet, for various reasons (primarily that my sweet cravings are getting out of control, and there's a history of diabetes in my family). I've done a bit of research and I know what to look out for as far as pre-made products like soup and spaghetti sauce, and I've looked into natural sweeteners, like date sugar, agave nectar, brown rice syrup etc.
Here's where you come in: I love to bake. Often, it is how I de-stress (perhaps this is how I got into this problem to begin with...). Obviously I will cut way down on the baking and find other ways to vent a little steam, but for those times when I just really want to make a batch of cookies or some muffins... where do I go? I've seen this
, but I'm looking for something a little broader for long-term use. I'd particularly appreciate cookbook recommendations, but of course blogs/websites are also welcome.
