What are shortening substitutes for healthy baking?
Apple sauce is a good substitute, but it can't be used as a substitution for all baked goods. You'll need to reduce the sugar in the recipe if the apple sauce is sweetened.
Pureed prunes work better with chocolate
Mashed bananas work to reduce the fat by about 1/3
Some baked goods simply can't be compromised with substitution, unfortunately.
