Excellent toasted! I used leftover Quinoa and Oatmeal Cereal Heart Healthy in this bread. It has apples, nuts and dried fruit. I also added additional fruit and nuts at the end of cycle of the bread machine. I used Back to Nature Nantucket Blend which has pistachios, almonds, cranberries, cherries, raisins. It is good! You can use whatever mixture you enjoy. If using sugar take note the dough won't be as sticky.

Delicious! Thanks for the warning about the dough being sticky, I was surprised how sticky it was, but it created a wonderfully fluffy, chewy bread! I used dried cranberries and walnuts, but the possibilities are endless and I look forward to trying with other variations. I should also add that this worked wonderfully at high altitude for me, which also makes it a keeper! Thanks Rita for a wonderful, healthy recipe that gives me yet another way to enjoy quinoa :) Made for Newest Zaar tag.
