I'm looking for some kind of substitute for butter
to put on my home-made, oil-free, whole-wheat bread I make in a bread machine. It's the ONE thing I really do miss being a McDougaller--soft melting butter on fresh warm bread from the oven (or machine). Mmmm.........
I do use things like mashed baked sweet potatoes or bananas, or for not-sweet, I'll use mashed avocado or even peanut butter. But the last two are obviously very high-calorie
, and the first two are sweet
I'd love to find something like butter that isn't butter--- a semi-neutral taste that will add some moisture but not a ton of flavor. After all, the bread itself is so tasty. I don't want a sandwich spread, but something to put on just the bread, out of the oven. Hummus is the only other thing I can think of, but I'm only lukewarm on hummus for this purpose.
By the way, I'm not on MWL and can eat bread.What do you use to substitute butter on your bread
