I couldn’t sleep last night because a terrible book irritated me, but at least this morning I had a good breakfast to make up for it. It was the last of the orange, oat, and honey bread I made this weekend. I’m not usually a fan of oranges, but this bread is an exception to the rule. (I’ve also made it with grapefruit juice. Also delicious.)
This is one of those banana-bread-like recipes (minus the bananas) that I have messed with to make it a wee bit healthier. It’s not super-sweet, nor is it loaded with fat. It’s sweetened with honey, and applesauce cuts down on the amount of fat added.
There also aren’t any eggs. Instead I use Greek yogurt.
It has old-fashioned oats added to it, and almonds. Because I can’t leave well enough alone, a little orange-and-almond glaze is poured over the top.
There’s not much else to say, only that it has a tendency to dry out if it’s overbaked, so watch it in the oven.
