I have a weakness for bread. And bread is one of the worst things for you and so high in carbs. This bread turned out fantastic for being lower in calories! But is it any good? It is delicious! And you would never know that you use applesauce and wheat flour in it. It didn’t last long in our house, it was too yummy!
