Vegan Oil Free Baking Tip: Cooking Spray Up Top!



I like to bake vegan. I just do! When you bake vegan and oil free, sometimes the top of goods can come out very dry looking! Here is a tip:
Spray the top of your baked goods with olive oil cooking spray before you bake them. This will eliminate or reduce the dry top! Also, you can spray it afterward, which makes an even nicer presentation.
Recipes which call for no eggs or oil benefit the most from this substitution. Like banana breads, and the like!

More Information:

I have a recipe listed under vegan banana walnut muffins(reduced sugar) which uses this method, and the results are greatly improved! Try it in any eggless oil-free recipe. Keep keepin' the calories lower!

*buy a re-usable pump oil sprayer (like misto)! Use any oil you want & stop waste!
