It can be hard to say â€œnoâ€ to sweet treats like soft and chewy fudge brownies or moist chocolate cake all the time! Who could blame you for giving in after smelling the aroma of those delectable goodies baking in the oven? But, when you do decide to dive in, it’s important to keep moderation in mind.
There are some tricks you can use to help shape up your eating habits while still spoiling yourself with some tasty goodness. You can cut out the butter and instead, use apple sauce or mashed bananas. You can even cut the sugar you use in half by adding different spices, extracts and flavoring to help boost the sweetness!
