Baking with Tea

Here’s an unusual way to add tea’s cancer-fighting compounds to a quick bread: our Health-e-Recipe for Walnut Chai Tea Loaf.

This tempting treat features walnuts, a good plant source of omega-3 fatty acids that are being researched for breast and prostate cancer prevention and are linked to heart health. Whole-wheat flour adds dietary fiber, strongly linked with reduced risk for colorectal cancer. And using egg whites and unsweetened applesauce for moisture instead of fat lowers the saturated fat to 1 gram per serving.

Orange zest tops off the terrific taste of this loaf. Cut a slice to add a little more healthy protein, filling fiber and cancer-fighting power to your breakfast, for a snack or to have with an afternoon cup of tea.
