Good-For-You Gingerbread

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by wife2abadge

From Evelyn Tribole's Healthy Homestyle Cooking. It took only 25 minutes in my oven, but it seems to bake everything more quickly.

This is delicious! It's so moist and gingery, my whole family loved it, including my 3 & 5 year old. I only wish I had some cool whip to go with mine. We will make this again as a quick and low calorie dessert. Thanks!
