Wunderthin is Healing Heart's version of a commercial fat substitute made by Wonderslim. It is
easy to make and has the same ingredients. The directions on the jar say that 1/4 cup of the
product replaces 1/2 cup of butter, oil or margarine. A one-for-one ratio may yield better results.
When cooking with Wunderthin, reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe as there is natural
sweetness in the prunes.

Healing Heart Hint:
Unsweetened applesauce can be used to substitute for oil, butter, or
margarine in most baked goods. Use the same quantity applesauce as oil.
