Quick and Healthy way to replace Cooking Oil in your Baked Goods!



Quick and Healthy way to replace Cooking Oil in your Baked Goods!


I am always in search of ways to make things more healthy. I have been on a weight loss mission for over a year now and I am happy to say that I have picked up a few tips along the way. One of my favorite tips allows me to continue to eat all those cakes and brownies that I love so much. Ok I don’t eat them often but when I do I prepare them in a healthier way!

Did you know that every time you read cooking oil in a recipe for your favorite baked goods you can replace it with equal amounts of apple sauce. It is such a brilliant idea that will help your baked items to cook beautifully in a healthier way. Plus the apple sauce will leave your cakes and muffins moist and tender!

Cutting the oil out of these recipes is a great way to cut calories! I wish I would have  known about this tip years ago! But, now that I do know…..I will never forget it! I have apple sauce on hand all the time! Enjoy!

  3. Thanks for posting this! We always have applesauce in the house so I will definitely try this out.

  4. Love it! I’d love to do more substitutions but am never sure if I should replace 1 for 1. This is an easy replacement. Thanks!

  5. I wonder if this would work well with Gluten Free cakes also? I’ll have to try it this weekend and find out.

  6. I use applesauce, too, in my brownies and they stay moist.
