Day three of Healthy Holidays with Treble in the Kitchen and the prizes just keep on coming!
It’s no secret that I adore baking, cooking, and experimenting in the kitchen especially if I am “healthifying” a decadent recipe.
There are a couple of ingredients that I turn to when cooking as helpful substitutes for ingredients that are higher in fat and lower in nutritional value like butter and sour cream. Even when making special holiday recipes, I sometimes sub a few ingredients hear and there to boost the nutrition of the treat…just as long as the flavor isn’t altered!
My top two healthy baking and cooking substitute ingredients are Coconut Oil and Greek Yogurt
I am a Greek yogurt lover through and through. Especially when it comes to Chobani.
Not only will I use Greek yogurt to add a little extra moistness when baking things like my Secretly Healthy Blueberry Muffins or High Protein Banana Muffins, but I eat Greek yogurt just about every day!
Brian even eats a cup of the fruity flavored Chobani in his lunch!
Basically, Brian and I can’t get enough of our beloved Chobani 🙂
I also LOVE using it as lotion, especially in the cold winter months when my skin gets extra dry.
A little goes a long way with coconut oil, and it can be used in sweet and savory recipes. If you aren’t a coconut fan, no need to worry. It doesn’t taste like coconut at all! It adds no flavor to the things you add it to while cooking, which is why this star ingredient is so versatile.
One Treble in the Kitchen Reader will receive a Chobani flavor of YOUR CHOICE along with a 32oz jar of Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil.
To enter the giveaway do at least one of the following:
The winner will be announced on Friday (December 13) afternoon! Good luck 🙂
