A healthier twist on sweet bread! This recipe has earned the goodfibes™ seal indicating it is a good source of fiber. 

2/3 cup apple juice
2/3 cup apple sauce
3 tablespoons honey
1 envelope Fleischmann's® Active Dry Yeast
3 tablespoons butter OR margarine, melted
1/2 cup granola
1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1-1/4 to 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour


Heat apple juice, apple sauce and honey until warm (100° to 110°F) and pour into a large mixer bowl.  Add yeast and let sit 5 to 10 minutes, until foamy. Add butter, granola, cinnamon, salt and whole wheat flour. Mix well, cover and let rest 30 minutes.

Add cranberries and enough all-purpose flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface, about 6 to 8 minutes.  Place in a greased bowl, turning once to coat. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place 1 hour or until double in size.

Punch dough down; shape into loaf and place in a greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Let rise 1 hour, or until dough has topped the edge of the pan. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 55 to 60 minutes or until lightly browned.
