I can’t remember a time when Becel® wasn’t in our fridge. Growing up, we first started using Becel® after finding out about my dad’s cholesterol issues. It was recommended by a dietitian as a way of making healthier choices in all of our lives. We have continued to rely on Becel® throughout the years, for spreading over bread and toast, as well as for our cooking and baking needs.
The Becel® margarine that we already know and love is now even better! Becel® Original, Becel® Buttery Taste, Becel® with Olive Oil, and Becel® Vegan are now available with simpler ingredients and no artificial preservatives, flavours, or colours. And don’t worry, it can still be used for cooking, baking, frying, sautéing and spreading in all of your favourite Becel recipes.
I always find myself wandering over to the Becel® website to browse through their selection of tasty recipes. Every single recipe I have made so far with Becel® has turned out wonderfully (remember my Chocolate Cranberry Coconut Cookies and Oatmeal Chocolate Cookie Bowls?!).
There are so many to choose from and I can always count on Becel® to help me when I’m in a rut and don’t know what to make for supper or find myself needing creative ideas for treats and desserts. There are a few recipes in particular that I haven’t tried yet, but simply can’t wait to test out, especially with the Becel® with simpler ingredients.
Here are a few of the recipes that’ll find their way into my kitchen over the next month:
