• Egg substitutes or egg whites instead of whole eggs.
  • Use applesauce or prune puree to replace half the oil or butter when baking to add moisture into your cakes and breads without adding more fat.
  • Less sugar–A lot of recipes call for much more sugar than is needed. Cut back by 1/3. Sugar alternatives for baking are a good option also. You might even like it better.
  • Fruit-based desserts–Although you still have to be careful, these desserts often have less calories and fat than other desserts.
