Applesauce is an excellent way to substitute or significantly cut down on oil in baked goods! It can even enhance the flavor of your baked goods, since the final result of using applesauce tends to be softer and slightly sweeter than it would be otherwise. It's an inexpensive, easy way of baking a little bit healthier, so why not try it out? If you'd like to start incorporating applesauce into your baked goods, the recipes below are a fantastic way to start.
