Coconut, flaxseed and dates wheat bread

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

Made this amazing bread yesterday. The recipe is frm the following link, just made some changes replacing raisin with dates, almonds with cashew. I need to work a way out to replace the 1/4th cup oil used here to make it healthier.


When I ran through the recipe calculator for 15 servings, it showed 200 cal/ serving! Oops, very disappointing!
Then, I replaced oil with yogurt and calculated again, this time it showed 170 cal/serving. 30 cal less. Wouldlike to try it again and see how it turns out if I replace oil with yogurt.

    Hi, I stumbled upon your page and I thought to offer a substitution. In many cases where sweet breads call for oil, you can easily substitute apple sauce. This way you might even be able to cut some sugar out (if the recipe calls for any).
