I tried this recipe last night and I was really pleased with it. I'm sure you could replace the oil with applesauce, I didn't have any on hand so I couldn't try it. I also only baked for about 45 min, but that may just be my oven though.
It is fairly high cal for one slice, but it may work into some plans. I personally can't force myself to eat a large breakfast, but I do try to eat something so I'm not starving by lunch. A slice of this and an orange fills me up.
