[b:b9d01bba1a]Cranberry-pumpkin bread with flaxseed[/b:b9d01bba1a]

pumpkins' beta-carotene, a cancer-fighting antioxidant, is combined in this bread with another health protector, flaxseed. Researchers have found a type of omega-3 fatty acid, as well as the photochemical lignans and dietary fiber, in flaxseed. Cranberries and whole wheat pastry flour round out this bread's health-packed ingredients. Add walnuts to make it even better if you'd like. Makes 12 servings
206 calories per serving. (without the walnuts)

Canola oil spray
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 cup ground flaxseed

1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup apple juice
