Applesauce is more than just a zero-cholesterol side dish. So think outside the jar and try adding some to the foods below.
- Brownies and muffins: Cut the fat grams per serving by replacing ⅓ to ½ of the oil with an equal amount of unsweetened applesauce.
- Blender drinks: To sweeten smoothies and shakes made with tart fruits, add applesauce to taste.
- Sandwiches: For turkey and roast chicken, combine ½ cup applesauce with 2 tablespoons chopped dried cranberries and 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts.
- Waffles and pancakes: Skip the syrup and use cinnamon applesauce and a spoonful of vanilla yogurt instead.
