Out with Butter, In with Canola Oil
Eating healthfully can still be satisfying for the taste buds. Food Networks Ellie Krieger, M.S., R.D., recommends replacing some butter in desserts with canola oil. The oils neutral taste lets any remaining butter flavor shine through while slashing saturated fat. For example, Kriegers double-chocolate brownie recipe only calls for 2 tablespoons of butter along with ¼ cup of canola oil.
