My Favorite Healthy Baking Swaps – Yes, One of Them is Pumpkin!

Healthy Baking Swaps

Oh my gosh, I shot with Jaeson Daniel Photography this weekend and I am SO beyond excited for the finished product! So many awesome things are going to start coming your way. Make sure you subscribe (box to the right) so you don’t miss out on any of the upcoming updates, posts, challenges, contests, and more! But first, did you see the blog’s makeover?! Isn’t the homepage slider beautiful? 🙂 I feel like a proud mama right now. Eee! Things are coming together and it just makes me more motivated to get my message out to as many people as possible. If you believe in Life in Spandex, share it with some of your friends. Nobody has to empty their wallets, commit hours at the gym, or restrict certain foods to look or feel their best. Let’s make the confusion stop! I create my training and nutrition plans for each individual and her unique needs. There is no one size fits all for health and I want to make sure each one of you gets the one-on-one attention you deserve.

Life in Spandex - Healthy Baking Swaps

If you know me outside of Life in Spandex or you’ve been reading for a while now, you know I LOVE making my favorite treats into healthy desserts! You can thank my sweet tooth for recipes like these healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, 15-Calorie Fudgsicles, Flourless Pumpkin Muffins, and 150-Calorie Protein Pancakes. Though my cooking skills sometimes lack (I’ll admit it! I tend to make the same things over and over again. It just works for me and the busy schedule I have!), I’ve never been shy to experimental baking. And, I have to say, I’m pretty damn good at it. Well, the majority of the time :).

The easiest way to start experimenting with baking recipes is to swap out the not-so-healthy staple ingredients for healthier ones! I’ve created this nifty table for you to pin, print out, or save to your Facebook or Instagram photos so you can reference it whenever you want to get your bake on!

  1. I have the worst sweet tooth, especially when you tell me I can’t have it! But I love protein pancakes with protein powder blended with banana and some water.
