Apple-Oat Raisin Bread

  • Happy Monday!

I love Mondays.  Especially when they are rainy and grey...... okay, maybe not so much.  

Today is one of those days where you can watch movies all day and never move off the couch, and feel okay about it because the weather outside is not much better.  You could literally sleep all day.  Or, if you can't sleep in past noon (i.e. me) you can bake!  Which is what I did.

Apple-Oat Raisin Bread, anyone?

Raisins, apples, oats and spices all in one slice of bread.  Mmmm.

Since this is a quickbread recipe, no yeast is needed.  The recipe is relatively simple and once it's in the oven, you're done!  

Here it is.  Enjoy!
