If you like muffins or quick breads, you can make them healthier if you bake them at home. Try these guidelines to redo your favorite recipe.......
- Use whole wheat flour instead of plain white flour.
- For the oil, use 1/4 to 1/2 the amount of oil and use applesauce for the remainder. For example, if it calls for 1 cup of oil, use 1/2 c canola oil and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce.
- Use 1/2 the amount of sugar.
