Sweet Substitutes

By: Nikki Nies

I’ve been on a baking binge lately.  Trying to remain on a budget as well as continuing to be health conscious, I’ve starting substituting ingredients, which decreases my guilt in consuming baked goods.  Bananas and applesauce are a great way addition and/or substitution to any baking recipe.  Whenever a recipe calls for sugar, opt for applesauce.  Also, I’ve been using coconut oil in replacement of butter recently.  There’s several websites that provide conversions of the amount of coconut oil in relation to butter stated in a recipe. What healthy baking substitutions do you use?

Below you can find some quick, easy treats that are guilt free.


A simple, quick treat that can curb any cravings.  If you freeze bananas, you can have them handy for any time.  To the left is banana, peanut butter, and dark chocolate chip bites =]
