Transform your baking repertoire by using smart substitutions like unsweetened applesauce instead of fats like butter or oil. The texture and taste stays the same and the resulting breads and muffins are that much healthier.

Use Applesauce Instead of Butter for Lighter Baked Goods

Apple Muffins Starting the day with a fresh-from-the-oven blueberry muffin or slice of banana bread sounds great, but those breakfast treats are often loaded with butter and sugar. Give baked goods a healthy makeover by substituting half of the oil or butter with unsweetened applesauce. If you like the taste, try using ¾ applesauce next time.

Do it Today: In the kitchen, use applesauce instead of butter or oil for moist, tasty baked goods with way less fat and fewer calories.

Nutritious Noodles:

This one’s a no-brainer — whole-wheat pasta has more vitamins, protein, fiber, and healthy fat than the white stuff.

Goin’ Greek:

In addition to being a protein-loaded superfood, Greek yogurt makes a great low-cal substitute for sour cream.
