5 Things to swap out when baking

I am quite fond of baking, and although I am better at cooking (In truth, Mason is a better baker than me) I love getting in the kitchen and whipping up some cookies or some cupcakes. After going Zero Waste, I had to make some changes with the way I did things in the kitchen. Here are 5 swaps I have made in the kitchen.

  1. Baking Paper
    This was the first thing to go. I usually just use coconut oil or olive oil to line the pan, but if you need to use something, silicone baking liners are the way to go.

     

  2. Cupcake paper liners
    Again, I usually just oil the pan, but they also make silicone alternatives for these!
  3. Aluminum Foil
    Aluminum foil is something that is often used in lieu of good quality cookware. When you can, invest in some good quality cookware, and I promise, you will never use foil again. Using it to cover items? Try beeswax wrap or just a tea towel.

  4. Peeling
    Yes, I am talking about fruit and vegetables, often, the skin is where most of the nutrients are, plus, when it’s in a pie or a cake, often, people won’t even notice. Keep the skin on I say, it will add texture and avoid waste!

  5. Recipies
    This one is a little different, but I’m talking about when we go out to buy ingredients for a particular recipe. I love making a fun game of finding 5 items in the fridge or pantry and trying to make something out of them, rather than buying items – be adventurous!
