I was in the mood for a little fall baking. I’ve been trying to feed the kiddos more fruits and veggies and fewer treats. This recipe does have sugar but I’m calling it a compromise as it has applesauce for the oil and pumpkin in it.
The recipe is super easy. In no time at all I had it mixed up and ready to bake in the oven. It is designed to make two regular sized loaves. I’ve learned that I like to make smaller loaves as I can give some away. So rather than making two large loaves I made two small loaves and one large loaf.
As I said at the beginning of the post, this recipe gives the option of using oil or using applesauce. I knew Kalissa would be eating some. I happen to be on the phone with her as I started making this. I said to her, “oil or applesauce”. She picked applesauce.
I was a little disappointed. Often when I substitute applesauce, I don’t like the taste…I tried it and…We liked it!! Here’s Carver giving it a taste. Every single childcare kiddo liked it and I did too.
We ate one small loaf the first day and the next day they ate the big loaf. The bread was still moist and good the next day so I was happy about that. I will for sure always make this with applesauce.
Poor Rosie wanted a try but Kalissa thought it was too good to share.
You can find the recipe HERE.
Give it at try and let me know what you think. I might use a few less chocolate chips when I make this again…but maybe not. I love chocolate!!
If you try it, let me know…I’d love to hear what you think.
