Why I Love This Recipe

Vegan version, adapted from the original Moosewood Cookbook). CAUTION: This fruity bread doesn't last out of the frig. for more than a day or so; will start to mold. Freezes well. Deborah Niles and Sherry Zitter

Ingredients You'll Need

1 3/4 cup light brown sugar OR 1 cup agave or maple syrup/rice syrup
+ 2 tbsp. orange juice concentrate
1/2 cup veg oil or coconut oil
2 cup flour (half can be whole wheat) *OR for Gluten Free, in spice or coffee grinder, grind 1/2 cup each quinoa, buckwheat, GF oats and amaranth. Note that amaranth may need twice as long to be ground fine.)
1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 1 tsp. salt (optional: 1/2 tsp. orange or lemon peel)
2 flax "eggs": 2 tbsp. Flaxseed meal (approx. 1 1/2 T flax seeds before grinding) forked into 4 - 6 tbsp. water. Let sit 2 minutes.
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups sliced cooking apples
