California Fruit Bread

2 c Whole wheat flour
2 tb Nonfat dry milk powder (or 2 tbsp. soy flour for milk free-diets)
2 tb Lowfat soy flour
2 ts Baking powder
1/2 ts Baking soda
1/4 ts Salt
1/3 c Applesauce
2 Egg whites or 1/4 cup egg beaters [or egg sub. equiv]
2 sm (7 3/4") very ripe bananas
1 8-ounce can crushed -pineapple, juice packed
1/2 c Chopped, pitted dried -apricots
1/2 c Golden raisins

Spray loaf pan with non-stick spray. Open pineapple and drain 
off juice. Mix dry ingredients together in large bowl. In blender, process
together applesauce, egg, bananas and pineapple add to 
dry mixture, add apricots and raisins, beat just till well mixed. 
Turn into loaf pan, bake in preheated 350F oven for 60 minutes or 
until golden and tests done. Remove from pan and rest on a board 
or rack on its side till completely cooled. Refrigerate wrapped. 
Freezes well.

Now for the variables, You may make this recipe with no apricots 
but with one fresh apple, chopped ( not peeled). You may make this 
recipe with or without raisins. Less sweet but good both ways. If 
you don't have the soy flour or the dry milk, just add the 
equivalent of flour or oat bran.
