The new light is about adding, not taking away: Flaxseed, for example, can work wonders with bread.

Cooking Light MARCH 2001

  • Yield: 16 servings (serving size: 1 (1/2-inch) slice)

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup flaxseed
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 cup mashed cooked sweet potato
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Place flaxseed in a clean coffee grinder or blender; process until coarsely ground. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flaxseed, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl; make a well in center of mixture. Beat cream cheese and the next 5 ingredients (cream cheese through egg white); stir in sweet potato. Add to the flour mixture, stirring just until moist.

Spoon batter into an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

Note: To freeze bread for up to 1 month, place in an airtight container, or wrap in heavy-duty plastic wrap or foil. Thaw at room temperature.
