Welcome to Day #4 of Christmas Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen from Juanita's Cocina! Each day we will be celebrating the holidays with a different set of Christmas-themed treats, as well as a fabulous Christmas giveaway. We hope you enjoy this fabulous event. Tune in each day starting today, Monday, December 9th and ending Saturday, December 14th.
Ahhh... cinnamon! Wafting through your kitchen it seems to be the aroma of the holidays. From cookies to cider to steaming French Toast, cinnamon is nearly universally welcomed. We love our cinnamon treats, but with the cookie and treat overload these past few weeks, I've tried to incorporate holidayish flavors into a hearty and healthy bread.
Personally, I find making homemade bread incredibly fulfilling. Knowing exactly what ingredients are in my loaf allows me to tweak the bread as I see fit for that day. Need something more healthy? We can always add more grains. Need a bit of a treat? A nice white loaf usually does the trick. But want something in between? We've got the answer right here in this soft, tender Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Bread.
Hearty with whole oats, yet sweet with cinnamon and either raisins or cranberries, this bread makes fabulous toast and a mean PBJ. French Toast becomes extra special with a double dose of cinnamon and a drizzle of pure maple syrup, and with each serving the bread brings servings of heart healthy fiber and whole grains.
So why not join me in a slice and a cup of tea as we visit the rest of today's #ChristmasWeek participants? I'm certain they have treats to make us swoon!
