Sorry, Paula, We’re Gonna Have to Pass on the Butter This Year!

Since it’s nearing the holidays, I’ve been on a huge baking spree. I just learned the “proper” way to bake (no Rachel Ray measuring!), so I love trying out my recipes at the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) and PRowl Public Relations bake sales we hold every few weeks.

My favorite thing to do with goodie recipes is to make them healthier for everyone to enjoy without feeling guilty the next day. That got me to thinking about how many holiday office parties there are throughout the season—I’m betting that very few offer healthy options! While it may be easier and less time consuming to buy store-made goodies, baking your own and altering the recipe for more healthy ingredients will make them much more fun to eat!

Almost all of your holiday favorites can be made healthier and still have that same, sinfully good taste—and your coworkers will most definitely appreciate the effort you put into it!

Here are some websites/magazines that I use to find a healthier recipe: (my favorite!)

Bon Appétit!

Personally, baked treats without butter aren't as good as those with. But yeah, they are really unhealthy.. with all the sugars too! :(
