Healthy Whole Wheat Applesauce Bars

I have applesauce that I need to get rid of and some egg whites, so I came up with this awesome recipe. If you try it I hope you enjoy!

Applesauce Bars

1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
2/3 cup of sugar
1/3 cup egg white
2 cups of applesauce
2 cups of whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 9x13 inch baking pan.
2. In a medium bowl, mix together the pumpkin, sugar and egg whites until smooth. Stir in applesauce. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice in a separate bowl; stir into the applesauce mixture until well blended. Spread evenly into prepared pan.
3. Bake for 30-40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are golden brown and toothpick or knife inserted in middle comes out clean. Cool in the pan over a wire rack.

If desired, dust with powered sugar. Pretty, but still tastes yummy without it. Enjoy!

Anyone else use the pumpkin puree instead of fat trick? If you have any other tips you use to make recipes healthier please share! And stay tuned for more healthy and delicious recipes that will be added on a more regular basis around here!
