  1. Eggs: You can substitute eggs with applesauce, mashed bananas, yogurt, silken tofu, or a commercial egg replacer. Use 1/4 cup of any of these substitutes for 1 egg.
  2. Butter: You can substitute butter with margarine or vegetable oil. Use 1 cup of margarine or 3/4 cup of vegetable oil for 1 cup of butter.
  3. Sugar: You can substitute sugar with honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar. Use 3/4 cup of any of these substitutes for 1 cup of sugar, and reduce the amount of liquid in the recipe by 2-4 tablespoons.
  4. All-purpose flour: You can substitute all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour, spelt flour, or gluten-free flour. Use the same amount of the substitute flour as you would use for all-purpose flour.
