Feisty Whole Grain Quick Bread

by ADMIN on JULY 16, 2011

Why Feisty? Because this bread is full of so much goodness that I couldn’t find a name suitable to cover it all! This moist, delicious bread has chunky peanut butter, pumpkin, molasses, wheat germ, whole wheat flour, and 10 grains. Though it may sound strange, this combination is wonderful!

What is this bread packed with?

  • Fiber from the wheat germ, whole wheat flour, 10 grain mix and pumpkin.

  • Vitamin A from the pumpkin.

  • Healthy unsaturated fats from the natural chunky peanut butter and canola oil.

  • B vitamins from the wheat germ and whole grains.

  • Iron from the molasses.

  • Vitamin Deliciousness from it all!
