My first post on my blog! YEAY!! I'm still getting the hang of this whole blogging thing so please bear with me...
Today, I needed to use some eggs and applesauce that had been lingering in the fridge. Bread is my weakness... especially sweet bread, so I found a delicious-looking recipe for an Applesauce/Oatmeal bread on Pinterest.com. Basically all of the alterations I make to recipes have to do with what ingredients I have on hand, in the refrigerator, or about to go-off and needs to be used... I really don't like to waste. I also try to keep on hand and use ingredients that will make the recipes HEALTHIER.
I made some changes to the original recipe (using mini loaf pans, using only White Whole Wheat Flour, adding raisins, omitting a few ingredients I didn't have) and it turned out amazing! Here is my own adapation of the recipe:
Yield: 1 loaf (or 2 mini loafs)
Prep Time: 20 min
Cook Time: 45 min (35-40 for mini loafs)
1 cup granulated white sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup canola oil - I would reduce this amount to 1/3 cup next time or use yogurt instead
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups 100% White Whole Wheat Flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup old-fashioned whole grain oats
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan (or 2 mini loaf pans).
