Chocolate Chip Christmas Balls


Healthy Holiday Pumpkin Mini Loaves

  • 1 cup egg whites, raw
  • 1 ½ cups pumpkin, canned
  • ½ cup applesauce, unsweetened
  • ½ cup water
  • ¾ cup sugar, white
  • 1/2 Splenda for baking
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon, ground
  • ¼ tsp clove, ground
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg, ground
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 1 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp walnuts, chopped
  • Preheat oven to 350°. Coat 5 mini loaf pans with cooking spray and set aside. Combine first six ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. In a separate mixing bowl combine baking soda, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, salt, baking powder and flour. Pour liquid mixture with dry mixture and mix well. Pour mixture into mini loaf pans, filling pans half the way to allow room for bread to rise. Bake for 25 minutes or until you can poke a toothpick into center that comes out clean. Let cool on wire rack for 20 minutes, wrap loaves in colored plastic wrap and tie with a festive ribbon.
