Applesauce Bread

I have recently discovered this awesome foodie site, SkinnyTaste, and I have loved every recipe I've tried from her!  This one is no exception.  I've made 4 loaves of it already and the whole family loves it!  This is a "light" recipe too...and if you are following Weight Watchers, she includes all the nutritional info along with the points for each recipe.

Applesauce Bread {I slightly changed the recipe, so my revised version is below....for the original recipe, visit the link in the title}
1 large finely diced, peeled apple, diced into 1/4" pieces
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • 1/8 tsp + 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 1/2 cups applesauce

  • 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, not packed

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

  • pinch of allspice

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 2 TBSP canola oil

  • 2 large egg whites

  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • In a medium bowl, combine diced apples, lemon juice, honey, and 1/8 tsp cinnamon.  Set aside.

    Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with baking spray.

    In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, nutmeg, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, allspice and salt with a wire whisk. Set aside.

    In a large bowl mix oil, egg whites, sugar, apple sauce and vanilla; beat at medium speed until thick. Scrape down sides of the bowl.

    Add the flour mixture, then blend at low speed until combined. Do not over mix. Fold in apples.

    Pour batter into loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

    Let cool in pan for 20 minutes and then remove to finish cooling.
