We were seriously in the mood for some quick bread the other day. We didn't want anything overly sweet or fat laden. So we whipped up oatmeal applesauce bread. Boy, were we glad we did. It was delicious and hearty and not too sugary. And it was polished off in less than 12 hours. We're considering baking another batch sooner rather than later.
Feel free to experiment. You could easily dump in dried fruit and nuts and make the bread that much more faboo.
