    Meredith K.'s Note:

    This is really good, and you'll be amazed at how low in fat and sugar it is! The recipe started as one from Sunset's Light and Healthy cookbook (1990), but I've tweaked it over the years, and I think I could get away with even less sugar. It's moist enough you don't need to spread it with anything -- just slice and enjoy. If you substitute craisins (sweeted dried cranberries), it works nicely for a holiday brunch or snack. Hope you like it.

      Have been looking for a healthy applesauce bread that wasn't chewy or too spicy and this fills the bill. Usually anything with applesauce needs spice but with the wholewheat flour it does not - I think spice would spoil the subtle flavor. Great with cranraisins. Thanks for submitting.

      I didn't use the raisins and nuts, but made this otherwise as written. The texture is really nice, different than I expected. Had applesauce to use up, and chose this recipe. I was worried about the lack of the usual spices found in apple sauce breads, but I am so glad I decided not to add any! The texture kind of reminds me of an oatmeal quick bread, and it has a subtle sweetness that is good on it's own. With a touch of butter? Oh My! Thank you for posting this Meredith! Now I have a reason to buy or make applesauce, rather than finding a way to "use it up".
