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!!!

Apple Bread

Once again, I have a bunch of apples that I need to use. This time it was a bag of Mutsu apples.....and this recipe only used 2 of them!   This is a good, sweet bread.

Makes 2 Loaves = 16 Slices
1 Slice = 4 PointsPlus™
1 Slice = 2 PointsPlus™**

1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 fat-free egg substitute
2 cups Splenda granulated
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups diced apples (I used mutsu because that's what I had)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
OPTIONAL: 1 cup chopped nuts (I did NOT use)

Preheat oven to 300º. Lightly spray 2 loaf pans.

In a large bowl, combine canola oil, applesauce, egg substitute, Splenda & vanilla. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Add to wet ingredients.

Add apples (and nuts if you decide to use them).

Divide equally between the 2 loaf pans. Bake for 1 1/2 hours (yes, 90 minutes).

Cool 10 minutes in the pan and then turn out onto a plate.

MY SPIN: Of course, I use a heaping tsp of cinnamon. Now to explain the P+ values. If you use 1/2 cup canola oil and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce, the P+ value per slice is 4P+. If you use 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce and NO canola oil, the value per slice is 2P+. Also.......don't forget to figure up the P+ values if your choose to add nuts.

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!
