Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Peach Bread

Good Thursday morning everyone!!! Went 'up the mountain' yesterday and bought another basket of peaches.....even tho' I still had some in the fridge that were getting pretty (over) ripe. Not wanting to waste food, especially yummy peaches, I decided to try a new Peach Bread recipe. It's good folks!

Makes 10 Slices
1 Slice Without Nuts = 4 PointsPlus™
1 Slice With Nuts = 5 PointsPlus™

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 TBSP milled flax seed (optional)
2 cups very ripe mashed peaches (5 or 6 medium)
1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
2 TBSP melted I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
1/2 cup nuts (optional)

In a medium bowl, mix flour, Splenda, brown sugar, salt, flax seed and baking soda.

Put mashed peaches in a large bowl. Add egg substitute and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. If you're going to put nuts in this, stir in the nuts. Stir in the flour mixture.

Spoon into a 9x5 sprayed loaf pan. Let sit for 20 minutes.

Bake at 350ยบ for 45 - 55 minutes.

Cool in the pan for 15 minutes; remove from the pan and cool completely on a rack. Enjoy!!!

MY SPIN: I didn't mash the peaches.....I chopped them up. I'm addicted to cinnamon, so I think this would be even more delicious if you sprinkled some (for me it would be ALOT) cinnamon in with the peaches. And if you have more than the called-for amount of peaches on hand, I don't see where it would hurt to add them (mine was a little more than 2 cups). If you opt to not use flax seed, it won't change the PointsPlus™ value.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!   *The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark.

Loving Life(time)!
