I used the suggestion of replacing 1/2 the oil in a cake recipe with Apple sauce. You would never know the difference. Good ideas.

Oh & in pestos, I often substitute for all, or part, of the oil: beans. Usually garbanzos/chickpeas, sometimes white beans. Gives creamier look to it; can still use part oil. Adds protein, removes fat.

The list left off the classic: prune, pureed, instead of butter & sugar in baked goods.At one point it was even sold by jar in the baking goods section, primarily used in baked things that were flatter & darker-adds fiber. Also, spark's black bean brownies is a classic-more fiber, +protein!

did you know that cashew butter is a great substitute for butters, oils, and creams, you can even make a sour cream substitue with them. they really add no flavour, or very little and the creaminess can't be beat. if you dont have nut allergies, they're definitely the way to go.

I like fat free natural yoghurt/ greek or quark for a thicker texture I mix in frozen berries and sweetener for a delicious frozen ice cream cool on a hit day and feels like a treat if you need a bit of naughtiness on top sprinkle options sachet over the top.
