QIs there a healthy sub­sti­tute for oil to make brown­ies?

AIf you’re look­ing for an al­ter­na­tive that low­ers the calo­ries, then give unsweet­ened ap­ple­sauce, fruit purée or but­ter­milk a try.

For the first two, the ra­tio of sub­sti­tu­tion is 1:1, which means for ev­ery cup of oil, use a cup of ap­ple­sauce or fruit purée.

How­ever, the tex­ture of your baked prod­uct might not turn out as moist as it would if you’d used oil. To solve that prob­lem, re­duce the bak­ing time by about 10 min­utes. If it’s not fully cooked, then put it back in the oven and let it bake for a few more min­utes, check­ing ev­ery minute with a tooth­pick un­til it’s done.

If you’re us­ing low-fat but­ter­milk, then for ev­ery cup (250ml) of oil, use ¾ cup + 2 tbsp (200ml) of but­ter­milk. In my view but­ter­milk is the best sub­sti­tute as it does not com­pro­mise the tex­ture.
