How To Make Coffee Cake Healthy: Ingredient Substitutions

White Whole Wheat Flour
Whole wheat flour is considerably healthier than enriched white flour because it still contain its outer coating during the milling process. As such, it has much more fiber and nutrients than traditional white flour, where the outer bran is removed. The only issue in using whole wheat flour is that it lends a hearty, chewy texture and taste to dishes. To maintain the light and fluffy taste of sweet baked goods but still have the health benefits of whole wheat, use white whole wheat flour. White whole wheat flour comes from a lighter variety of wheat, so it preserves the light taste of enriched flour while still imparting the health benefits of whole wheat flour.

Butter Substitute
For the creaminess you love without all that fat and calories, choose butter substitute. But be careful, because some butter substitutes, like margarine, contain trans fats, which can raise the likelihood of developing heart disease and other afflictions. Most supermarkets carry oil-based butter substitutes that are healthier for you than butter or margarine. Just make sure to choose one that can withstand the high temperatures of baking.

Carob Chips
Slightly sweet with bitter notes, carob chips are a healthier alternative to chocolate chips as they typically have less sugar and fat. They look just like dark chocolate chips, and have a somewhat similar taste. You can cook and bake with carob chips just like you would with chocolate chips, but the end result might not be as sweet as it would with real chocolate.
