Baking with applesauce

I am always experimenting with new ways to make my favorite dishes allergy-friendly or trying to adapt recipes for my allergies. One of my all-time-favorite allergy ingredient hacks is applesauce. When I first heard people were using it to replace eggs, I couldn’t believe it would work. So I tried it and fell in love with the results. 

The beauty of baking with applesauce

Even if I don’t have to make something egg-free (I can eat eggs), I will choose to use applesauce because I prefer the taste and texture – you will see how moisture is a key component of baking with applesauce. 

To share/convert you into a baking with applesauce lover, I have gathered a bunch of bombastic recipes.

Baking with applesauce breakfast food

I’ve never been a huge fan of pancakes or waffles, but what I learnt from using applesauce is I am not fond of the eggy taste. This discovery led to the creation of many waffle recipes like these whole wheat waffles or these three-ingredient oat flour waffles, and of course, kombucha pancakes.
