Cheap Eats: Spicy Applesauce Oatmeal Bread
A couple days ago I read that people are sending all kinds of supplies, including edibles, in care packages to OWS. I decided to make bread with this recipe, which has to be one of the easiest ever. It's made in one bowl, no mixer required, very easy clean up. As an added bonus, it tastes great and is relatively healthy! It looks like four of these might fit in a USPS Medium Flat Rate box, so they'll ship for $10.50.
The only downside is this bread isn't going to work for vegans, so back to the cookbooks ...
Spicy Applesauce Oatmeal Bread
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (quick cooking)
3/4 cup walnuts, dried cranberries or raisin
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix ingredients together in a large bowl until thoroughly combined. Pour mixture into a greased or parchment lined loaf pan (8.5 x 4.5 x 4).
Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 to 15 minutes before eating.
