This bread is jam packed with nuts and dried fruit- just the way I like it! I’m always looking for some extra toppings to make my breads chewy and crunchy.
Even when it comes to traditional baked bread, I always reach for the one topped with nuts and seeds for extra crunch!
I usually throw in raisins or almonds, but love mixing it up with different goodies. They add so much flavor and nutrition to this breakfast or dessert! This recipe uses some nuts I don’t bake wiht often. Macadamia nuts are super high in healthy fats and pecans are packed with fiber and magnesium.
The recipe is not too sweet or moist like banana bread, so it makes for the perfect breakfast with a slather of yogurt and honey or nut butter.
