I've heard about using applesauce or black beans to give baked goods a healthier twist. Do you have any other tips?

Plain yogurt is a good substitute.

Would this be okay if someone was lactose intolerant? My hubby can't eat it, but I would think baking would be okay since it's mixed in.

Not sure. I doubt it would be OK since it still has the dairy in it!

Add shredded or diced veggies to sauces. I loved apple sauce in brownies

I tend to do this when making sloppy joes or hamburger pie or pasta.

Pretty much any type of fat, butter, sour cream, cream cheese, etc. Much healthier!

I'm not too slick myself. I figured this post would give me some pointers.
