Granola Bread with Dried Fruit: BBD #35

Granola Bread with Dried Fruit: BBD #35

For Bread Baking Day (BBD #35) , the bread of choice is Bread with Dried Fruits . I didn’t want to make another Holiday bread with fruit in it so I almost skipped this one, but you know me… I can never pass up a chance to bake bread.

I was having a little trouble deciding what bread to make, then, I got this neat little bread book from my sister for Christmas. Of course, now I want to bake all of the breads in it.

This Granola Bread seemed really interesting and healthy so I decided to make it for Bread Baking Day #35 . I didn’t have any plain granola so I just added some cereal with granola, wheat flakes and raisins. I also added dried apricots.  It makes a healthy and delicious bread. I enjoyed it toasted with butter for breakfast.
