This is a "lowered fat" recipe using applesauce in place of the oil. ALSO: I've used ground flax seed ("Golden") to include the heart healthy Omega-3's that we need. ( Fat count may not appear to be much lower because of the Flax Seed. )

I omitted the saltines which are high in fat and calories. I used oats instead to soak up the moisture and hold the loaf together. The idea for oats came from an old recipe from a great aunt.

Baking Powder Biscuits with Flax by Jen

Non-hydrogenated Shortening & Ground Flax helps to add some nutrition to these old fashioned favorites - measure Flax VERY loosely. The fat may seem high but some comes from the healthy Omega 3 oil in the flax, which is also high in protein.

Challah bread with honey
(no ratings)

This Challah Bread is a HUGE family favorite - I've made Challah from a handful of recipes. Overall, they are very similar, but this one is our favorite so far!

(This recipe is from www.easyjewishrecipes.com - website address makes 2 loaves. I have halved this is to allow for a "one loaf" recipe.)
