Whole Wheat Low-Sugar Spice Bread

Submitted by: MHNUTRITIONCLUB
Whole Wheat Low-Sugar Spice Bread

Introduction

This delicious quick bread is somewhere between sweet and savory and contains only 3g of added sugar per serving, as opposed to 13-20 grams of refined sugars in similar quick breads. Practically any puréed fruit can substitute for the pears; unsweeted applesauce, apricots, or even plums would work well!

  • We can't get whole wheat pastry flour here. Does anyone know if regular whole wheat flour would work? Would amount need adjusting? Thanks for the help. - 11/5/11
