Bellucci Premium recommends creating healthier snacks this Halloween by substituting butter for olive oil in cookie and cake recipes.
According to a SkinnyChef.com article published on October 10th titled “Healthy And Tasty Halloween Treats,” it’s common for kids to go all out with chocolate and salty treats during Halloween. The author of the article, Chef Jennifer Iserloh, details how making food during this fun holiday can be done in a healthier way.
Iserloh shares these recipe ideas in the article as better alternatives to sugary snacks and candy:
Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for Bellucci Premium, says that extra virgin olive oil can be used as a substitute for butter in cookie and cake recipes. “This provides an easy and healthy way to use all of your favorite Halloween cookie recipes while getting the added health benefits of olive oil.”
Sexenian recommends trying this health trick when baking during any time of the year, not just Halloween. “Use around 2 ½ teaspoons of olive oil for every 1 tablespoon of butter used,” she says. “Not only will your baked good taste delicious, but they will be moist as well.”
Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
