Healthy Baking Substitutions for Butter

Who doesn’t love butter? We all have some memories of thoroughly enjoying and eating Amul butter. The ‘utterly butterly delicious’ would simply make us all drool! Butter is a beloved ingredient that plays a starring role in some of our favourite recipes – particularly when it comes to baking. From cakes and cookies to quick breads and pastas, butter (or oil) is amongst the key ingredients for baking.

But the fat found in butter is mostly saturated – the kind that clogs arteries and raises LDL (bad) cholesterol, a contributing factor in heart disease. Ultimately, we all look for healthy eating options, and if can eliminate butter all together without compromising on the creamy texture of our delicious baked goods, why not?

Butter (and oil) can easily be substituted with simple healthy substitutions. This not only helps you cut back on saturated fats, but also ups the nutritious value of your favourite baking recipes.

Here are some of our favourite healthy baking substitutions, for butter (and oil), for you to try in your own kitchen.
