Apple Bread Pudding
Apples and applesauce can be a delicious low-fat, low-calorie snack. Apples are great sources of Vitamin C, potassium, and a good source of fiber if you leave the skins on. You can replace about 1/3-1/2 of the oils in many recipes for baked goods by substituting with applesauce, without sacrificing flavor or texture.

10 slices cinnamon raisin bread, cubed
1 jar chunky applesauce

- Place half of the bread cubes in a greased 11x7x2 inch baking pan.
