    I would say cakes with fruits or vegetables incorporated in them, so carrots, courgettes, beetroots or bananas for example.

    I'm a great fan of adding fruits or vegetables (e.g. zucchini bread, banana bread, etc.).

  • sarahawker  on  5/26/2016 at 7:11 PM

    Coconut flour

  • nellybligh  on  5/26/2016 at 9:53 PM

    I love using coconut sugar - a lovely caramel flavour & so much better for your blood sugar levels.

  • JanScholl  on  5/27/2016 at 12:12 AM

    I try to use only organics and get as close to vegan as I can. I make a mean black bean brownie with no sugar, no flour and fresh Michigan walnuts.

  • GillB  on  5/27/2016 at 12:39 AM

    I love using grains- in crusts and fillings

  • Orielle  on  5/27/2016 at 4:16 AM


  • ndyson  on  5/27/2016 at 7:07 AM

    Organic whole foods.

  • vickster  on  5/27/2016 at 7:08 AM

    Different grains like buckwheat and rye flour

  • meggan  on  5/27/2016 at 12:14 PM

    I always use organic cane sugar which tastes so much better than conventional and is healthier ( a little at least!) for you.

  • Sfgordon  on  5/27/2016 at 3:25 PM

    I've recently been on a gluten free/few grains diet and I have enjoyed using alternative flours like coconut flour, almond meal and polenta in baking.

  • lauriesk  on  5/27/2016 at 4:20 PM

    I incorporate olive oil into a lot of my baked goods.

  • sgump  on  5/27/2016 at 9:38 PM

    I love to replace as much fat (butter or oil) as I can in baked goods with applesauce (or pureed carrots, or pureed prunes).

  • ChefClaireFVS  on  5/28/2016 at 11:39 PM

    in baked goods I love adding almond or other nut flours in place if wheat flour.

  • juazella  on  5/29/2016 at 12:33 AM

    I love to sneak in veggies (carrots, zucchini, squash, etc) when I can!

  • lils74  on  5/29/2016 at 1:28 AM

    I like to add honey, and nuts.

  • tangaloor  on  5/29/2016 at 4:07 AM


  • katieate  on  5/29/2016 at 4:13 AM

    Fruit and nuts are great to add to sweet treats to make them healthier.

  • CLeonard  on  5/29/2016 at 7:25 AM

    Quinoa, coconut milk, banana, ground flax, nutritional yeast

  • lindaeatsherbooks  on  5/29/2016 at 1:19 PM

    I really like using walnuts and beets in my desserts.

  • KZielke  on  5/29/2016 at 4:18 PM

    Fresh fruit.

  • deucemom  on  5/29/2016 at 5:20 PM

    I have just found coconut sugar - do you consider that healthy?

  • willowglen  on  5/30/2016 at 1:51 AM

    Usually nuts or berries ; but I also like recipes that use lemons or beets.

  • bopper  on  5/30/2016 at 4:31 PM

    bananas if I can

  • echilt5  on  5/31/2016 at 3:00 PM

  • ballen  on  6/2/2016 at 10:16 AM


  • tarae1204  on  6/3/2016 at 12:12 PM

    I love finding unexpected vehicles for baking with chocolate like avocados and plaintains!

  • Mayandbill  on  6/4/2016 at 2:47 AM

    I like to sneak in vegetables like grated courgette, beetroot or even parsnip.

  • megweaves  on  6/4/2016 at 7:31 PM

    Almond flour.

  • Jenmarie24  on  6/5/2016 at 12:22 AM

    Palm shortening - it's great to have that option!

  • DesiKim  on  6/5/2016 at 1:47 AM

  • sbh2006  on  6/10/2016 at 5:13 PM

    I love baking with fresh veggies (various types of squash) and use fat-free Greek yogurt in place of sour cream / mayo.

  • Lollymac  on  6/11/2016 at 7:15 AM

    I've just started using buckwheat flour and I think it's fantastic.

  • pandapotamus  on  6/11/2016 at 7:54 PM


  • trudys_person  on  6/12/2016 at 6:37 PM

    Well, healthy is a relative term. Butter is better than some other fats, but I also use olive oil in some baked goods. Buttermilk, whole grains/whole grain flours, nuts ...

  • carolienbell  on  6/13/2016 at 7:42 PM

    coconut oil, because it makes everything better!

  • Sergeant123  on  6/13/2016 at 10:09 PM

    Peaches. They are versatile and even grilled peaches are so enjoyable. Something about peaches just makes me happy.

  • ACoeliacKid  on  6/14/2016 at 5:11 AM

    Coconut sugar, as it adds real flavour to gluten free baking.

  • Hihelen  on  6/15/2016 at 4:35 AM

    Replacing sugar with pureed fruit

  • percussion03  on  6/15/2016 at 7:45 PM


  • sharifah  on  6/16/2016 at 8:36 AM

    vegetables - courgettes, carrots, beetroot...

  • hopezibah  on  6/17/2016 at 4:12 PM

    I've recently discovered cacao powder and cacao nibs and love using that.

  • hrhacissej  on  6/17/2016 at 5:35 PM


  • sandiemidd  on  6/18/2016 at 2:24 AM

    I love using lemons and oranges, they add such a wonderful flavour to cakes. My favourite cake is orange and almond cake, .. it uses pulped, whole oranges and almond flour instead of wheat flour.

  • SLane  on  6/18/2016 at 6:14 PM

    I love using medjool dates - they're so beautifully sticky & sweet !

  • Titch  on  6/19/2016 at 2:47 AM

    Has to be fruit for me too :)

  • Sofie168  on  6/19/2016 at 10:25 AM

    Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains

  • jd5761  on  6/19/2016 at 6:14 PM

    blueberries would be my favourite fruit to add

  • BakerMN86  on  6/21/2016 at 9:47 PM

    I've been experimenting with "alternative" flours. Sometimes a challenge, but it's been fun!

  • cookbookworm  on  6/22/2016 at 7:04 AM

    Caraway seeds
