My name's Sara.
I'm 26 years old. I got married on October 29th 2010. This is my blog on how I started trying to lose weight for my wedding and be over all more healthy.
I'm a picky eater, always have been always will be. I do try things at least once... most of the time. I don't eat meat on the bone it really grosses me out.
I take all the pictures myself.
These pumpkin bars are really yummy and a great mid day treat! I found the recipe online and made them more healthy by adding some whole wheat flour instead of all white and I cut out 1/4 cup sugar. I used mini chips which means there is a lot more in every bite and you could probably even cut them back a little since you are using mini.
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup fat-free yogurt
2 large egg whites
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350*
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring well with a whisk. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture, stirring just until moist. Stir in chocolate chips.
Spoon batter into a loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan, then remove. Cool completely on wire rack. Makes 18 slices
