  • **** Things I do with this recipe -- ****.
  • These do not really create a problem to where more moisture is required, it just makes the loaf a little more solid. If you feel mix is too dry I suggest 1/2 cup applesauce.
  • *Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup Post Select Grains (any of those flavors work GREAT).
  • *Add 1/2 cup flax seed.
  • *Add 1/2 cup cooked barley or rolled (uncooked)(if you can find it).
  • *Add 1/2 cup dried cranberries.
  • *Add 1/2 cup trail mix - your choice.
  • *Add 1/2 cup any FRESH fruit, diced to small bite size --
  • I have been out of some of the dried things above and crumbled up 2 granola bars just to add some "special" - worked Great!
  • I personally make these in small mini-loaves, wrap in clear wrap when completely cooled. They make a really nice present for showing you think of someone. The UPS man, mailman, etc. Just a nice way to say "Thanks for taking care of me".
  • Mini-loaves 16ct.(refill or 2 pans).
  • 2 loaves 9x5.
  • Enjoy!
