    I recently came across this chart of healthy baking substitutes:
    *Use Black Beans instead of Flour
    *Applesauce instead of Sugar
    *Mashed Avacado instead of Butter
    *Evaporated Milk instead of cream
    *Banana instead of Butter
    *Vanilla Extract instead of Sugar
    ect...(see chart attached)
    I personally have used some of these, others sound a little off the wall.
    What are some other healthy substitutes you can use for baking? Have you ever used any of the above listed? What have been your experiences?

    I knew about the apple sauce and the banana. However, the other substitutes are all new to me.
    I have had good luck using apple sauce instead of sugar. Apples have their own natural sugar. You really can't tell the difference. I've never used any other substitutions so I can't comment any further on this.
