READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by mikey ev

adapted from Cooking Light. Yummy Fall treat! I made these in mini loaf pans and baked for about 33 minutes. I got 8 perfect mini loaves. (Update: I froze some of these after baking. Then just thawed them out and they were GREAT even 2 months later!)

This was a delicious addition to a my Thanksgiving meal and will become a new family traditional recipe. Everyone loved it !! To make it a little more healthy I substituted 1 cup of the flour for whole wheat and it didnt make a difference in the texture at all.
