Ginger Bread and a Salad

Here is another of my favorites: greens and ginger bread. So yummy.

1/2 cup organic butter OR 1/2 olive oil OR 1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup sweetener (honey, sucanant, maple syrup, etc)
1/2 cup blackstrap molasses
2 organic eggs
1 cup applesauce
2 cups all-purpose flour or spelt, brown rice flour, etc
2 teaspoons baking soda
6 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 cup finely chopped greens such as kale, collards, arugula, etc

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 9- by 13- inch baking dish.

2. Mix all wet ingredients together.

3.. Sift the flour, baking soda, ginger, and cinnamon into the applesauce mixture and stir well to combine thoroughly.

4. Spoon into the baking dish and bake for 35 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.

5. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack; cool completely
