Pumpkin Nut Cocoa Cherry Bread

Recipe by Chef Suzette

A healthy alternative to chocolate cake, muffins or cookies!

Top Review by White Rose Child

ATTENTION! This recipe should be modified; flax seed oil is NOT for use in cooking or baking! It is not heat stable, will turn rancid and lose its health benefits. I would think it would give bread an odd taste, but even if not, this is NOT a healthy idea for an otherwise healthy oil.
