Prune Syrup (Butter Substitute)

1/2 cup Agave Nectar

1 lb Prunes

1/2 cup water

Place prunes and agave nectar in food processor and process until nearly smooth. Slowly pour in water. You may need to scrape the sides and process further to get a smooth, thick syrup.

This isn’t a recipe for a meal. This is a recipe for an ingredient you will use in baking recipes. By using prune syrup instead of butter, you cut the calories in many baked goods in half, reduce fat by 85% and cholesterol to zero.  Use half the amount of the butter or shortening called for, or 3/4 the amount of oil called for in a baking recipe.
