If you have little tips like the one I am going to share with you right now I would love to hear from you so I can make up a booklet for all to share ,for free help in our lifes goal of good health.

Instead of all the fat when making a cake don't add the eggs and Oils just do this.

1 cake mix ( chocolate) FunFetti if you like
1 - 16 0z diet coke

dump the cake mix in a bowl, add the coke and mix until smooth . Pour in a cake pan and bake according to directions and then a bit more because of all the liquid until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Tastes great and a lot less fat.

I used Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie mix and the diet coke and it came out great.

Can anyone out ther share anymore of these little tips for my booklet. Again I will not profit from this it is only to help anyone who asks and I will send them all I know. Thanks Bonnie K 63 year old diabetic.

Well so far I was told that you can use applesauce instead of the eggs or crushed banana's but the banana's will change the flavor and the applesauce won't. You can use this in pancakes as well . Bonnie K

Bonnie you can use crushed bananas or unsweetened applesacue instead of the diet coke. You can use these in all of your baked deserts. The applesauce does not change the flavor much but the banana will. I also use 1/2 applesauce and 1/2 water in my pancake mixes or while cooking my oatmeal, add frozen fruit to either of these and you have filled in some of the Carbs with healthier anti oxident carbs.

Thanks for the information, can you be more specific as to the amount of each of the bananas or the applesauce and the fruit according to the ingredients. Please Bonnie K

All you need to do is add the massed banana or applesauce in the same amount as the oils or egg you are replacing. I use the fruit according to how much I want. I know that was not much help but that is how I do it.
