This healthy recipe can be multiplied but you’ll need to use two loaf pans. Bread will keep for 72 – 96 hours in a plastic bag and will freeze well. Reheat gently or toast.

Recipe Notes

This recipe is the perfect one to make on a weekend so that you have a great healthy breakfast throughout the week. Using the Z-sweet or allulose makes this a lower calorie choice without all the sugar in most quickbreads but with a lot of added fiber from the whole grain flour and the wheat germ.
