Baking is fun, and can be nutritious if you replace traditional ingredients with healthier ingredients like:

Unsweetened Sugar Applause:

One cup of sugar contains 774 calories and a sugar content of 200 grams. Within the same one cup which contains 122 calories and 22 grams of sugar, you can substitute the sugar with unsweetened applause. Therefore, for a healthy replacement to use unsweetened applause.

Black Beans for White Flour:

When it comes to white flour, one cup of white flour produces 3.4 grams of fiber and 484 calories, while black beans yield 95 grams of fiber and 227 calories in a cup of black beans. In the addition of white flour it is easier to produce nutritious meals using black beans.

Plain nonfat Greek Yogurt for Sour Cream:

It is easier to use pure nonfat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream as it contains 22 grams of protein, 23 grams of fat and 120 calories on a cup of Greek nonfat yogurt while the same one cup of sour cream produces 4.8 grams of protein, 484 calories and 45 grams of fat. Greek Nonfat Yoghurt is a good option for baking.

Mashed Avocado for Butter:

The mashed avocados may be used to cover them with butter. Since one cup of mashed avocados contains 15 grams of unsaturated fat and 240 calories while 115 grams of fat and 1240 calories are not healthy in the same volume of butter.

Mashed Bananas for Vegetable Oil:

In one cup of butter, vegetable oil contains 997 calories, and 218 grams of zero-nutrition fat. Whereas in the same volume of mashed bananas 2.7 grams of sugar, 200 calories and 23 percent of the daily needed potassium and 20 percent of vitamin C are found. And mashed bananas are the ideal alternative to vegetable oil.

Pumpkin Puree for Vegetable Oil:

It also contains 8.7 grams of fat, 80 calories and a nutritional value of 160 percent of vitamin A and 48 percent of vitamin K. About the same amount of oil provides more calories and fat, with no health benefits.

Flax Eggs for Real Eggs:

Flax eggs are a combination of 1 pound of ground flaxseed and 3 pound of water. That is the better, the faster. Replace real eggs as one real egg does not have fiber, whereas one flax egg has 3 grams of fiber. One egg has 78 calories, and one flax egg has 0 calories. But for baking purposes the flax eggs are healthier than the actual eggs.

You may use sliced or pureed vegetables and fruit to maximize the taste and increase the nutritious benefits of your baked cuisine.


White flour may be substituted for other nutritious meals such as whole wheat flour, almond flour, chickpea flour, and oat flour.

Instead of normal chocolate, you should use dark chocolate, since dark chocolate has more nutritional benefits than traditional chocolate, and less white chocolate calories.
Likewise, you can use natural sweeteners such as honey and jaggery instead of refined sugar, because they provide more durable benefits and improve the taste of your food.
