Apple Cinnamon Bread

Did you know that the average American consumes more than 22 teaspoons of added sugar a day? That’s more than TRIPLE the recommended amount for women and more than DOUBLE the recommended amount for men!

It's even more shocking when you realize how many calories come with all of that added sugar. Through the Sweet Swaps Initiative, Splenda is trying out creative ways to swap full sugar for Splenda Sweetener Products in order to save calories.

By swapping one cup of sugar with one cup of Splenda No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated, you can save more than 600 calories! That's what I did with this Apple Cinnamon Bread. I cut this in 9 portions and saved like 65 calories per slice.  Plus I cut the oil by using half applesauce. What I didn't cut was flavor.  This was an awesome cake. 

Splenda is trying to spread the word about their calorie saving products and they have some amazing recipes on their site. So visit for some inspiration!

1/4 tsp. ground cloves
2 large eggs
1/4 cup canola oil

2 cups chopped apples, I kept the skins on and used Fuji
