Making up the baked goods... round 2!

Since my last make up a baked good recipe was semi-successful, I couldn't help but try again! I used many of the same elements, but created something a bit different. Again, pretty healthy, and very delicious. Next time I'd probably make muffins with this batter instead. I love the tang of sour cream in baked goods, so I threw it in with everything else! The bread is pretty dense, a result of using whole wheat flour. It's not very sweet, but I toasted it and drizzled a little honey on it and it was so good. Peanut butter might also be good on it.

This bread basis is so versatile, next time I might try pineapple and coconut, orange, almonds and cranberry, or blueberry and pecans!

Apple, Cinnamon and Oat Bread

1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 1/2 cups apple sauce
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. light sour cream
3 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup oats
1/2 cup walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Beat sugar and apple sauce until combined and light. Add eggs one at a time until combined. Add vanilla, sour cream, baking powder and cinnamon. Beat 20 seconds until combined. Add in flour, oats and walnuts, fold with a spatula to combine. Pour into a greased loaf pan (or muffin liners) and bake for 50 minutes.

The one thing I suck at is baking. I love that you can just make this up and it come out so fabulously. That and the flavor combo is to die for! mmmm....

You're so lucky you can bake! I can't believe you made this up! I don't think I could ever pull that off! Sounds delish!

haha...I just realized that Katie and I left nearly the same comment. I'm calling a lawyer. I might get sued for copyright enfringement on blog commenting!
