Heart Smart Low Sodium

Apples contain soluble fiber and potassium, both of which help to keep your heart healthy.

1/2 cup canola oil
2 large eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a 9-by-13-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat oil and eggs until foamy. Add remaining ingredients except the diced apples. Stir until just combined. Add diced apples and stir until apples are coated. (Batter should be thick.) Pour batter into prepared pan.
