Apple sauce vs. Vegetable Oil

Do you enjoy baking breads, muffins or really anything that calls for vegetable oil; but you don’t like the idea of all of the saturated fat? Have you ever considered using apple sauce when a recipe calls for vegetable oil; but you were unsure of what ratio to use? If either of the above statements sound familiar I am here to help.

Apple sauce is a wonderful substitute¬†whenever a recipe calls for vegetable oil. I usually have a large jar on hand in my pantry; the key is finding a brand that doesn’t add any extra sugar. I have found that usually you can use the exact same amount of apple sauce that you would vegetable oil. I have also found that when I substitute oil with apple sauce my breads and muffins turn out very moist.

Trust me, you won’t miss the oil and neither will your tummy. Next time a recipe calls for vegetable oil try using the same ratio of apple sauce.
