Healthy Fruit Bread

This is based on the recipe I posted earlier. I played around with it this week and have made now a much healthier version of it. It’s still really yummy and moist, which is what I was going for. It’s not as rich obviously as the original version, so you may not like it as much. If however, you crave carbs like I do, but want it to not completely wreck your diet, then this is the bread for you.

2 cups chopped fruit (I have used many different kinds, some favorites right now are chopped gala apples and chopped pear)

3/4 cup applesauce (the original recipe doesn’t call for any, this is to make up for the lack of oil)

1/2 cup canola oil (note the difference between the original recipe’s call for a full 1 and 1/4 cup oil)

2 mashed bananas (ends up with about 1 cup)

3 eggs and 1 egg white, beaten (I took out one egg yolk from the original recipe)

Mix all of these ingredients together in a medium bowl, set aside.

3 and 1/8 cups flour

2 cups sugar (or if you like, 1 cup plus as much honey as you see fit, I would just rather have it sweeter)

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 tsp salt

Mix above ingredients in a large bowl, then add the fruit mixture until combined. Bake in 2 greased bread pans at 350 degrees for 45 mins or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Enjoy!
