I hate not being able to sleep. I wake up and although the clock reads an UNGODLY 3:30am, my brain is UP UP UP! I know it's because I have a lot on my mind. And I actually am thankful for the fact that if and when I wake up like this, I can get things done because I can work on items at home.
So I did. I've been working for over an hour, and I thought, "ok, well maybe I can fall back asleep now."
Nope. No such luck.
So I think I'll bake some pumpkin bread for the kids - what a yummy scent to wake up smelling! Here is the recipe:
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup egg substitute
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 cups sugar substitute
6 ounces pumpkin
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine whole grain pastry flour (Arrowhead Mills makes a great one), all-purpose flour, salt, spices, and baking soda in a small bowl; set aside. Combine egg substitute, olive oil, Splenda, pumpkin, and water in large bowl. Gradually add flour mixture. Pour into loaf pan and bake for approximately 45-50 minutes.
I'll let you know how it goes. Time to bake...
