There are many good recipes for healthy whole-wheat breads, but all yeast versions take several hours to make. This quick bread uses baking powder and soda to leaven it instead. It is good for sandwiches, as a snack, or toasted with peanut butter or jam. If you need two loaves, freeze the extra bread for later use.




Cook's Notes

The bread may be frozen, double-wrapped in plastic wrap, up to 3 weeks, or refrigerated up to 1 week.

    I made this and while baking, smelled fantastic! Tasted even better than it smelled.

    This is one fantastic quick bread! The baked appearance was not the best but just cut in to it and take a bite and you will definitely make this again. I ate it with a mixture of butter and marmalade which was really nice. It is almost like a bran muffin loaf but not as sweet and it could go either way----as a mildly sweet cake or a great bread for savory toppings. Give it a try! You won't be disappointed.

    Delicious bread! Wonderful smell of molasses fills the kitchen while baking, but does not overwhelm the flavor of the bread. It is understated and so good with a pat of organic butter on top.
