🎄 🍰 Bake Healthy Xmas Desserts with Best Apps for Dessert Recipes

By Jan 2, 2019

Christmas is knocking on the door and before you use one of the Best 10 Apps for Dessert Recipes, you should consider the four healthy substitutes for sugar in your holiday desserts.

You are likely to gain 1.3 pounds during holidays. That doesn’t sound horrible, right? Well, it is.

The problem is you’re highly unlikely to lose what you gained and add that to other holiday cheers and you’ll soon be looking at a much “wider” self.

Naturally, most of it comes from sugary desserts, so to help you out, we bring you 4 sugar substitutes that make cookies healthier without ditching the yummy sweetness. 

1. Use Applesauce for Oatmeal Cookies

1 Cup unsweetened applesauce (100 calories) = 1 cup of sugar (770 calories)

Oatmeal cookies are the nutrient member of the cookie family. But they do contain sugar and fat that can make the early autumn trousers seem like socks.

Oh, if you’re a cookie explorer, we suggest Yummly as it has dozens of cookie variations - pumpkin cookies included.

2. Use Grained Beet for Brownies

Beet (2/3 cup= 40 calories) = Sugar (1/4 cup= 190 calories)

Brownies are another Christmas favorite that if not sweet enough, your family is certain to sing a sad Christmas carol.

The best part - the family will never know. And just for good measure, you have our word we won’t tell anybody.

Saving...

3. Use Vanilla Extract for Cakes & Sweet Bread

Vanilla Extract (4 TSP = 148 calories) for 1 Cup of Sugar (770 calories)

Vanilla extract goes perfectly with Christmas cakes and sweet bread - trust us, we tried it (more than once).

A half teaspoon of vanilla extract is enough to replace 2 tablespoons of sugar.

For cake and bread ideas where you can try it out, we tested Tastemade and it ended up our favorite with its simple video tutorials.

4. Use Honey For Anything

Honey (1/2 cup= 515 calories calories) = Sugar (1 cup= 770 calories)

Wait, honey has more calories than sugar, what the heck?! Yes, but you need it 2 times less. You can replace 1 cup of sugar with 1/2 cup honey.

Plus, you can reduce the liquids by 1/4 cup and reduce the oven temperature by 25°F. So you’ll save some electricity money as well.

Now that we armed you with healthy sugar substitutes, you are ready to prepare healthy Christmas desserts without spoiling the sweet Christmas fun.

Now all you need is recipes, right? We recommend you try something new these holidays and the Best 10 Apps for Dessert Recipes are here to help!

Just make sure you hide your healthy sugar alternatives from the family and enjoy the delicious and healthy Christmas.
