My Gingerbread (Sugar Free and oil free) Yummy

Low Calorie Gingerbread

This is the yummiest sugar free recipe that I have made substitutions for yet!!!!!!

2/3 cup applesauce
1/2 splenda
1 egg
1/2 cup light molasses
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup hot water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and lightly flour one 8 inch square baking pan. Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, ground ginger and ground cinnamon. Beat everything well together. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes. Serve warm and enjoy. Cool whip is good on top but adds extra calories.

If you divided this cake into 12 pieces they will be 108 calories each and .5 grams of fat each

Sunday afternoon

We are enjoying early morning church. It is so nice to have a lazy day. We are loving Nevada. Gabe is now on a basketball team and loving it. His game is on wednesday. The weather has been great and we have been riding bikes, going to the park and playing outside basketball. Brody is 9 months old now. He is eating lots of food and has 2 new teeth. But no crawling yet. Lacey is growing up fast. She helps watch the babies. He hair is getting long thick and curly. Finally Lacey has nice hair. She got a razor scooter for Christmas and she is really good on it. I started the weight loss competition at the gym. So I have really got to eat better and I am going to work out like crazy. I am already doing 6 days a week but I plan on going twice a day sometimes. My goal is 24 lbs in 3 months. It's not too crazy but realistic too me. I may have too loose more if I want to win though. We will see. My appetite is out of control while I am breastfeeding. We took the jeep Cherokee off roaring yesterday. There are so many places to go here. Basically 98% of NV is BLM so it is great for the off road enthusiasts and ATVs. Well Brody needs me later.
