  • I had to give up cookies because I have no self control but if I did make cookies this article is helpful. I'd never replace the eggs but using apple sauce instead of oil is great. It's interesting that sugar can be cut in half. I'm limiting carbs right now and I would be tempted to eat the cookie dough (yes, even with raw egg) so it's better I stay away.
  • These are all good advice, but my problem is staying under 50 carbs as a post-bariatric surgery patient. I am struggling with just the bare essentials and am worried that ventral KY boredom will overcome and I will eat too much.
  • I was really looking forward to ideas and options for no-sugar no-artificial sweetener options. I have no problem eating grains, healthy fats or eggs, but I can't handle sugar or artificial sweeteners as they send me into an eating binge that can last for days. So I've been added sugar-free for almost a year and it is great, but sometimes I would like to have some modified recipes that don't use the stuff. I have a really nice carrot muffin recipe that uses homemade applesauce (just apples with the skin, a dash of water and cinnamon) and the natural sweetness of the carrots. They are amazing and fluffy, but I would like some variety you know?
  • I haven't tried any of this but I will. I think we need more articles like this which actually tell us how to make recipees healthier not just trying to motivate us to stick to our healthy eating plans. Thanks.

    Eat whatever you bake this way fast, the stuff gets hard, and after you do it for awhile, tends to taste the same, sort of dull, same as any diet food! Better than nothing, though........
  • Fat is not the culprit, sugar is. People eat way to many simple carbohydrates.
  • Omg this article is awesome!! I had no idea you gould use vinegar and baking soda instead of eggs!!
  • I use unsweetened applesauce all the time. I think I will try the pumpkin for a change!!!

  • Eat baked goods rarely, but when you do make them properly,with butter and eggs and sugar. Sheesh.
  • Wow.. Great ideas! Thanks... I didn't get to make volcano's in school! :( But hey, now I can! LOL
  • Wonderful article. Are there recipes on SP using these subs?
  • I knew about applesauce but not the pumpkin nor prunes. Thanks.
  • This is great info, but it should be noted that baked goods that are made with fresh bananas cannot last long. They go bad, or get mouldy.
  • Thanks for this article. I have tried some of these methods, but this article shares a few more tips and options.

    I've used banana, applesauce and yogurt . . . most with good results.
