Olive Oil Replacing Butter in 5 Ways

Did you know that you can use an equal amount of olive oil as a healthy replacement for butter in virtually any recipe?

Olives contain monounsaturated fats which are regarded as a healthy dietary fat because of their antioxidant properties. Low saturated-fat content and cholesterol in olive oil is useful for heart health. Here are 5 ways in which you can substitute olive oil for butter:


Baking

Olive oil can produce good results as a substitute for butter in baking, especially in recipes that do not require butter creaming with sugar.

Macaroni and Cheese Recipes

Extra virgin olive oil stands out as a substitute for butter when making sausages for macaroni and cheese because it cuts back the amount of saturated fat in this recipe. Importantly, you need to use an equal amount of olive oil in place of butter.


Dessert Recipes

Extra-virgin oil can be a great replacement for butter in desserts such as cookies, ice creams and cakes because it tastes great with most ingredients. To achieve better results, choose the right recipe to make use of olive oil health benefits in place of butter.
