Protein Pumpkin Bread

I adapted this recipe from Carolyn's protein banana bread. The original banana bread has become a staple, but I don't want myself or my DH to get burned out on it, thus, the pumpkin version. Enjoy!!

Protein Pumpkin Bread
per slice: 168.5 Cals, 2.7g fat (.6g sat), 21.1 g carbs (2.2g fiber), 13.2g protein

1/2 c apple sauce
1/2 c egg substitute (or 4 egg whites)
1 t vanilla
1 1/2 c canned pure pumpkin (not pie filling!)
1/2 c splenda brown sugar blend

1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/4 c almond meal (you can grind your own in a food processor)
5 scoops protein powder (I use vanilla flavored)
1 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1t cinnamon
1/2 t ginger
1/4 t nutmeg

Preheat the oven to 325F. Combine the first group in a bowl and mix until blended. Combine the second group in another bowl and blend. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix thoroughly. Pour into a greased 9"x4" loaf pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 10-15 minutes in the pan before removing. Makes 10 servings.

Today's workout: Turbo Jam Cardio Party 3
(48 min, avg hr 127, peak hr 153, 423 cal)
This workout is (IMO) almost identical to the other Cardio Parties. The warm up is exactly the same, the cool down and stretch is exactly the same. This on has one more segment than CP 1, making it about 5 minutes longer. The songs are different. I don't really see a place in my collection for more than one or two of these workouts. I guess the "mix" in the title really does mean that. It's basically the same workout with a slightly different order and soundtrack. I'll probably keep CP2 and 3 and sell CP1 and Remix. I do think this is a fun workout, though, I just don't need 4 copies of essentially the same one taking up space on my workout shelf. Hopefully, Kick, Punch, and Jam is different enough to warrant keeping it.
