Applesauce Bread

(1 Votes)

1 Hr

Here's a goodie where we've been able to replace all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour to give us a way to enjoy getting some extra fiber. It's got a full, nutty taste and texture we think you'll like.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cups applesauce
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup low-fat milk
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray
  2. In a medium-sized bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine applesauce, sugar, vegetable oil, egg whites, and milk; mix well. Gradually add flour mixture to applesauce mixture and thoroughly mix until well blended. Pour into prepared loaf pan. 
  4. Bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.

You can even make this batter in a regular 12-cup muffin tin for a high-fiber take-along snack. And they only need to bake for 25 to 35 minutes.

Maybe you should red Ms Barneybutt it says 2/3 c. Sugar r u blind?

These are great! I actually used the individual brownie pans. So it made 9 small loafs. Just the perfect size! I also like the fact that it uses whole wheat flour. I did replace some of the flour (1/4-1/3 cup) with flax seed for that added nutritional boost, used olive oil instead of vegetable, and almond milk.Very adaptable. Off to make more right now!

I have a very similar recipe. If you use dark brown sugar instead of white sugar you will get a much darker loaf. It is also excellent with raisins and walnuts. Also, to Barney, applesauce is usually a substitute for fat. That's why you can get away with such a small amount of fat in this recipe. There are many websites on line where you can type in your recipe and it will give you nutritional info.

I think barneybutt 5477047 needs to follow his own advise and read!!!! there is sugar in this recipe. It is nice to know nutritional facts before you make recipe.

What happens if I use whole eggs?

I used 1 large egg instead of the 2 whites - worked just fine.

Can you please include calories and other nutrition information on all your recipes. That is the first thing I check before making a recipe.

I would like to know what I'm saving in fat and calories on these light recipes. Thank you:)

Please provide the nutritional facts on this recipe. Thanks!

Sheesh!!!! There is NO sugar; hence, no empty calories. There are many, many recipes that substitute apple sauce, honey, some type of juice for the sugar. Read, people, read!!!

there is 2/3 cup sugar in this recipe. People want nutritional facts for more than just sugar intact and calorie counting.
