This bread was pretty good. I like the addition of the oatmeal which makes it healthier. If I were to make it again, I think I would add a little more sugar and more spices. It could have been a little more flavorful. The fact that it is so healthy makes it a keeper (with a bit of tweeking)The cooking time needs to be adjusted also. I made 3 mini loaves and the 30 minutes in a 350' oven wasn't quite enough time. Overall a good recipe
