Johnny Applesauce Quick Bread Recipe, a Lower Calorie Option for Dieters, Secret Ingredient Replaces Oil for Moistness

Applesauce is a great substitute for fat-loaded oils that are commonly used in home-kitchen recipes.

Using the fruit based ingredient rather than solid or liquid forms of fat assists in keeping calories in check while retaining the balance of moisture.

If you prefer to use real eggs in this recipe, then do such.

The same applies to the Splenda, but the sugar substitute will save you about 800 calories in this low fat recipe.

If you do opt for the substitute, you'll need to use Splenda as unlike other substitute sweeteners it will hold up its flavor when it hits the heat of the oven.

Ingredients for this Low Fat Recipe

1 1/2 Cups of All-Purpose Flour or Bread Flour
1 Cup of Splenda*
2 Egg's Worth of Egg Substitute
2 Cups of Applesauce
1 Teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

How to Prepare Johnny Applesauce Bread

There are several different varieties of Splenda so be sure to use the type which measures like sugar, cup per cup amounts.

Combine all of the listed dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate containers, and then add them all together. Stir to incorporate well.

Pour the mixed batter into a baking pan sprayed with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for about 45 minutes - or until toothpick inserted into center removes clean.

Excellent Bread Recipe for Tea or Coffee Breaks

This bread recipe is lovely as a snack amid tea or coffee time. Dust the top with sifted powdered sugar if you wish; you can even make a design on top with the sugar if you are creative.

As a side note, we're not that creative - so when we do designs, we always use a pattern.

Quick Bread - for Dieters

Our sausage biscuit diet recipe also included in this article.

Take 1 biscuit that is about 100 calories and roll until flat. Next, spray with butter flavored cooking spray and place into a skillet that has also been coated with the cooking spray.

Allow biscuit to cook until done on both sides. Fill with any of the following:

- a bit of jam

- sprinkle with powder sugar and ground cinnamon instead of filling

- sprinkle with garlic salt and a bit of butter instead of filling

- fill with 1 slice of microwaved bacon and a scrambled egg

Sausage Biscuit, a diet-friendly lower calorie recipe

Sausage biscuits can be pricey in calories particularly when fatty sausage is used. Most fast food sausage biscuits hover at about 300 calories. For a leaner sausage biscuit containing fewer calories we're going to take our biscuit into sausage kolache over-drive.

Pick up a package of lean breakfast sausage links at the market. They should contain about 60 calories each. Also purchase a can of biscuits - not the grand ones with the grand calories, rather the small ones which contain 50 calories each. If you can't find 50-calorie biscuits, then use the 100 calorie biscuits.

Cook the sausage links as directed on the package.

Roll out the biscuit dough and form the dough around the cooled sausage. Bake as directed on biscuit package until golden brown. For a low calorie dipping sauce, mix 2 Tablespoons of bottle chili sauce with 1 Tablespoon of grape jelly. Heat and dip.

This dipping sauce also makes a lovely glaze for party sausages. Your guests will go ga-ga over the sweet and spicy flavors. Simply prepare the glaze in a larger amount and place the tiny smoked sausages into a pan with the glaze.

Cook until the glaze cooks down to create a lovely coating on the sausage appetizers. Poke a frilly toothpick into each of them and you're done.
