Apple Cinnamon Granola Bread
This recipe has earned the goodfibes™ seal indicating it is a good source of fiber. When it comes to breakfast breads, this fine-textured whole wheat loaf made with granola and applesauce is hard to beat. For a special wake-up treat, spread it with fruit-flavored soft-style cream cheese.
1-POUND LOAF: INGREDIENTS: 1-1/2 POUND LOAF:
2/3 cup water 1 cup
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce 1/2 cup
1 tablespoon butter or margarine 1 tablespoon
1/2 teaspoon salt 3/4 teaspoon
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour 2-1/4 cups
3/4 cup bread flour 1-1/4 cups
1/2 cup granola 3/4 cup
1/4 cup nonfat dry milk powder 1/3 cup
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar 4 teaspoons
1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands® Ground Cinnamon 3/4 teaspoon
1-1/4 teaspoons Fleischmann's® Bread Machine Yeast 1-1/2 teaspoons
Add ingredients to bread machine pan in the order suggested by manufacturer, adding applesauce with water, and granola with flours. (If dough is too dry or stiff or too soft or slack, adjust dough consistency - see Adjusting Dough Consistency tip below.)
Note: For large-capacity machines with glass domes, make only 1-pound loaf size to ensure complete baking.
Recommended cycle: Whole wheat/whole grain or basic/white bread cycle; light or medium/normal color setting. (If basic/white bread cycle is used, add 1 tablespoon gluten to either size recipe - see Adding Gluten tip below.) Timed-bake feature can be used.
Adjusting Dough Consistency: After mixing for a few minutes, the ingredients should turn into a smooth ball around the kneading blade. If the dough appears too stiff or too soft, add more liquid or flour in 1 teaspoon increments, until the proper consistency is reached. Do not add more than 3 to 4 teaspoons liquid or flour. The machine can not compensate for wide variations and may not bake the larger amount of dough thoroughly.
