Help!! I need a healthy receipe!!!

I'm going to a LLL meeting tomorrow and I'm supposed to bring a healthy snack. The library will only let us bring "baked goods" so it needs to be something that isn't gooey. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I can't think of anything!!!

Low fat cranberry orange bread! It only uses a little bit of oil and egg whites.

* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
* 1/2 tsp baking soda
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1 cup sugar
* 2 tbsp canola oil
* 2 egg whites
* 1 tbsp orange zest, finely chopped
* 3/4 cup orange juice
* 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries, chopped
* 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

PREPARATION:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, beat sugar, oil and egg whites, mixing well.
Add orange zest and juice. Gradually beat in flour mixture until thoroughly blended. Fold in chopped cranberries and walnuts. Transfer to loaf pan and bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Yields 1 loaf (12 slices)
