Applesauce instead of oil

Alright, I'm on this quest to eat healthier and still be able to eat things I like. :) So, when I was making some of my very, very favorite cupcakes (sorry another fabulous family recipe) I thought I would use half all purpose flour and half whole wheat flour. Then I also wanted to get rid of the fat of the oil, so I substituted 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce for the 1/3 cup oil. I must say, they turned out just wonderfully, as always and seriously no one could EVER tell the difference! Just get creative with recipes you love. Then you can cut the fat and calories and add nutrition! :)

Have fun baking and substitute applesauce next time in something! I am definitely going to try this the next time I make a quick bread too. :)
