Applesauce spice loaf

Using up applesauce can get boring, quick (especially if you have bucket-loads of it). I was trying to think of ways to use applesauce and be tasty and healthy and was inspired by an issue of O magazine where alternative whole grain flours are used, like Rye. Rye flour has lots going for it including being low in gluten and high in protein.

This loaf has no added sugar. It's perfect with almond and plum butter (or apple butter). Craig is skeptical at my attempts at no sugar baking but gave this one a thumbs up.
