  • Yes it does, but don't be afraid to use olive oil or grapeseed is good for you and you don't want to go totally fat-free...

  • Yes. I've used it in different recipes and never had a problem, and there is no apple taste. I like knowing I can give my family healthier food by using it. My DH doesn't eat much fruit, so this is another way to help a little.

  • YES! And it's healthier. You use the applesauce instead of oil, and you can use egg beaters instead of eggs (an old coworker told me that) - and those were her tricks for making something soft and delicious!

  • Yes it really does! I always decrease the bananas by 1 and replace with applesauce in my banana bread recipe. Everyone says it is the best and moistest banana bread they ever have. As a bonus, it is so moist it actually allows the bread to freeze REALLY well.
