While the whole health picture is more complex than eating an apple a day to keep the doctor away, fruits and vegetables undeniably supply nutrition vital for good health. Apples, whether whole or as applesauce, contain fiber and vitamin C.
Applesauce naturally contains no fat and few calories per serving if you choose unsweetened varieties or make your own. Enjoy it by itself or substitute it for fats in baked goods to keep them tender.
Applesauce by itself makes a delicious and wholesome sweet treat. As an ingredient, it also lightens the caloric density of baked goods and makes a delicious glaze for roasted meats.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln recommends swapping half of a recipe’s margarine, butter, shortening or oil component with applesauce. The finished baked item will have a tender, crumbly texture and a slightly sweeter flavor, yet you’ll reduce calories while adding fiber.
