48) Nut Butters In Baking

Do you assume that oil-free baking has to result in sad, dry baked goods?  Not if you mix in a little nut (or seed) butter!  To quote myself, “I love this method of mixing applesauce with nut butter as your fat. I think I invented it so don’t steal it. (TM!!!!) It gives you fiber and protein and nutrients that oil or straight-up applesauce in baked goods wouldn’t, and it’s also great for structure, crumb and flavor.”
