Add applesauce to your recipes!
Substituting applesauce for oil is one of my favorite healthy baking tips. It not only cuts down on calories, it is healthier for you than oil, and it’s cheaper! And I have found it makes for super moist results.
To substitute applesauce in place of oil you can do a simple swap – ie. substitute 1 cup of oil with 1 cup of applesauce. Or you can play around with it to find what you and your family likes. Start with 1/2 cup of oil with 1/2 cup applesauce and then work it to your liking.
NOTE: Applesauce is not a great substitute for butter.
