Baking with Applesauce

There was an interesting discussion over at the Kitchen Goddess group regarding the substitution of applesauce for oil. Lucky for us, FitSugar heard about it and gave us the lowdown.

Now you might be asking yourself, could this really taste good? The answer is yes. Take your best cookie recipe and give it a try. I'll be honest, it won't taste as fantastic as the original, but it'll be healthier and in my book that means I don't have to feel so guilty.

If your favorite recipe is too good to mess with, then look for one that calls for applesauce to begin with. For yummy Applesauce Cookies,
