Oatmeal Breakfast Bread

I had some applesauce lying around that I wanted to use, so I was happy to find this recipe. It also gave me a chance to use whole-wheat flour.

I used a pretty old, spotty loaf pan – big mistake. When I took it out, there were tiny bits of metal flakes stuck to the sides of the bread. I cut off the sides (pictured below), which is too bad because I love crusts. Needless to say, I threw the pan in the trash.

Cinnamon Raisin Granola

I made a few changes to thisĀ recipe

  • Added 1/3 cup wheat germ
  • Added 1 cup chopped walnut pieces
  • Decreased brown sugar to 2 tablespoons

I baked it for 20 minutes, taking it out every 5 minutes to stir.

This is before it went into the oven. It's best to use as large a pan as you can find so that you can spread a thin layer of granola - that way it'll bake evenly.
