Ingredients


  • 2-1/4 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup granola
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter OR margarine

Directions


Combine 1 cup all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, granola, sugar, undissolved yeast, salt and ground cinnamon in a large bowl. Heat water, milk, applesauce, and butter until very warm (120o to 130oF). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Roll dough to 12 x 8-inch rectangle. Beginning at short end, roll up tightly. Pinch seam and ends to seal. Place, seam side down, in greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.

Bake at 375oF for 30 to 35 minutes or until done. Remove from pan; cool on wire rack.
