Cranberry Oat Bread from Farmstand Favorites

Cranberry Oat Bread



3/4 cup honey

1/3 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1/2 cup milk

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 cups fresh cranberries

1 cup chopped nuts



Combine honey, oil, eggs, and milk in a large bowl; mix well.

Combine flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Mix well. Stir honey mixture into the dry ingredients. Fold in the cranberries and nuts.

Spoon the batter into two 8 1/2-inch x 4 1/2-inch greased and floured loaf pans. Bake in preheated oven at 350ºF for 40 to 45 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out nearly clean. Cool in pans on a wire rack for about 15 minutes. Remove the cranberry oat bread loaves from the pans and allow to cool completely on the wire racks.
