Applesauce Pecan Protein Bread

Delicious applesauce bread with a twist.   Adding whey powder increases the protein and decreases your guilt. I loved this bread.  It had a nice cinnamon taste with a crunch of roasted pecans.  We ate a slice for breakfast with some almond milk.  It felt like we were cheating but I knew it was full of yummy goodness!!

2 eggs
1 cup of sugar or sugar substitute such as Splenda
1/4 cup canola oil
1 cup natural applesauce (no added sugar)
1/4 cup fat free sour cream
1 1/2 cup flour (whole wheat or regular)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup pecans
1-2 scoops protein powder

1. Spray loaf pan and preheat oven to 350.
2.In large bowl mix eggs, oil, and sugar.
3.Add applesauce and mix.
4.Add sour cream and mix.

5.Add flour,  baking powder, and baking soda and mix.
6.Add desired amount of cinnamon.   

7. Add protein powder a little at a time.   The batter should be a little thick but not a dough. 

8. Add some of the pecans,  leaving some for topping the bread.

9.Pour mixture into loaf pan. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon and pecans.

10.Bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Yummy, Yummy for my tummy!!!!
