This almond oat and fruit loaf is similar to a quick bread that is part sweet, part savoury. It’s based off of this recipe with some tweaks to suit what I had on hand. I opted out of adding any sugar into the batter as there’s plenty of dried fruit for sweetness. You can choose any dried fruit you want, although I’d avoid apples because you’re putting a fresh apple into the mix. I used prunes, peaches, apricots and pears.
It’s very different to most loaves, but really good. It’s best served with something on it – a little nut butter or thick jam is amazing. I slathered mine with peanut butter and some rhubarb strawberry jam. It’s the perfect mid afternoon or post workout snack. It’ll keep for a few days at room temperature, but once you are past day 2, it tastes better toasted.
