In a medium pot, combine all ingredients except for bread and egg whites and cook for about 15 minutes over low to med heat.  Break bread into small ½” pieces and put into a large pan sprayed with non stick spray.

When mixture is done cooking,  pour onto bread, covering all the pieces.

Mix in the egg whites. If bread  does not seem wet enough (you don’t want them soggy, but want them moist), add a tbsp or two of warm water.

1 cup granulated Splenda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
pinch salt
1 1/2 cups almond flour
almond milk (water or milk can be used)

Pre-heat oven to 300. Spray a loaf pan with non stick spray. Mix all ingredients (except almond milk) really well. Add the almond milk to make a pourable batter (not too runny though…you may not need this). Pour into pan and back for approx 65 min until toothpick comes out clean. Cool and cut.

CHOCOLATE SNACK CAKE

I can’t believe it has been so long since I last posted!

 

CHOCOLATE SNACK CAKE
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated Splenda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa, sifted
1 cup egg whites (I used chocolate ones, but you can use reg)
1 1/2 cups almond flour

Grease an 11×7″ baking pan with non-stick spray.

Beat the pumpkin, Splenda, baking powder, salt, vanilla and cocoa with an electric mixer. Beat in the egg whites on high speed until well blended. Mix in the almond flour. Spread in the baking pan and bake at 350º about 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the edges of the cake start to pull away from the sides of pan. Cool at least 15 minutes before cutting or it will end up in crumbs.
