Replacement Resolution with Musselman's Applesauce

Casey has the Journey Gym, and me? I have my own will power and commitment as a way to help me get in shape this year. 
So when Musselman's Applesauce introduced me to their "Replacement Resolution" I was intrigued. 

I thought, "What the heck, I can replace a snack a day with an applesauce" and you know what? It's working! I changed nothing about my diet, except I am no longer eating my granola bar as a mid morning snack. Instead I am eating one applesauce cup. 

I am feeling better, and looking better and plan to keep it up for the rest of the year!

I also found out you can cut oil out of your baking by replacing it with applesauce! How cool is that!
Here is a good conversion chart. 

Chart 1 

Basically you use EXACTLY a 1:1 ratio. 

I am also really excited to try this Applesauce Doughnut recipe with the kids, they are baked not fried!!
Apple Sauce Doughnuts

  • 6 unfilled doughnuts
  • 1 c. MUSSELMAN'S Apple Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 c. pecans, chopped

Slice doughnuts in half horizontally. Combine apple sauce, brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans. Place some apple sauce mixture between halves and arrange in shallow pan. Fill center and partly cover top of each doughnut with remaining apple sauce mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. Serve warm.
Makes 6 servings
