Looking for healthy Substitutions for Holiday Baking...

I am looking for Healthy substitutions to classic baking recipes... Preferably Chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter and Sugar cookies. I know that I can sub 1/2 the flour with wheat and the Egg with whites, but what about oil/butter and sugar?? Any ideas would be helpful!!


  1. In some recipes you can substitute apple sauce or mashed bananas for oil or butter. I'm not sure how it would work for cookies. I do this when I bake muffins. The applesauce works well for pumpkin and apple muffins.

    I've tried Splenda in some baked goods but wasn't happy with the taste.

  2. For me, any cookies are too dangerous, I can't stop once I get started on cookies.
