I have what I believe is a "celiac belly" so I am going to try to cut sugar out for a while to see if anything improves. I can't do anything about natural surgar in fruits but I want to try to cut back on my sugar intake (with what I can).

When I make breakfast muffins and some other things that call for sugar...

*What can I sub in place of the sugar?

Thank you!!

Depending on the recipe, for muffins, I sometimes reduce the sugar and add unsweetened applesauce. You could try banana puree or some people that can't have sugar use baby food like apricot puree...make 1/2 recipe to try the subs. Once I forgot to add sugar to a chocolate muffin recipe so I frosted them and you couldn't tell the difference. I have put applesauce in pumpkin bread and even in brownies before.

If I were to sub with applesauce is there a rule of thumb on what the ratio is...

Like say it calls for 1/3 cup sugar then would I sub equal amount of applesauce?

Thanks

If you only use a little in muffins it should be fine straight across. I use 1/2 and 1/2 or guess at it. You can but those little 6 packs of applesauce if you don't want to get a big jar.

Thank you Purple for your reply, I always appreciate your input :D

I think I will test the applesauce out in a breakfast muffin recipe I have. I buy the 6 pack of Mott's Natural Applesauce so luckily I don't have to go to the store for that.

How did you learn all of this stuff?? Certain Cook book in particular or trial and error?

Thanks again!

I try to convert all my recipes to use honey. I posted banana bread on here that only used honey (& choc chips if desired!) to sweeten. Over-ripe bananas are very sweet to start with though.

You may need to reduce a liquid a bit b/c of the moisture in the applesauce. Applesauce can be part of a replacement for vegetable oil.

I like to read the comments people write in before I make something new. Recipezaar is great for that, here too. Then I make 1/2 a recipe or the whole thing. Trial and error. I threw out split pea soup last week. And crackers last month. You just never know. ;)
