Baking Healthy Breads and Muffins

Eating healthy foods does not mean giving up yummy things like breads and muffins. But instead of store bought or box mix that are highly processed and full of sugar, fat and salt, making your own and substituting a couple of ingredients can make the breads nutritious and delicious. My niece, Alicia, made these pumpkin cranberry breads using whole wheat flour instead of white flour and applesauce instead of oil. She is sharing with me and I can’t wait to try mine. Baking in bigger batches and freezing a couple of loaves (or sharing with your aunt- thanks Alicia!!) saves time and money. Processed food is more expensive and not healthy. What special thing do you like to bake that could be improved with some healthy substitutions?
