cranberry, oat & honey bread

i think i forgot to mention here that our fremont oktoberfest 5k team
'fremont is better than munich' placed 23rd out of 131 teams.

not bad :)

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
1 cup quick cooking oats
3/4 cup honey
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/2 cup fat-free milk
2 cups fresh cranberries (or 1 cup dried)


1. preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.  

2. in a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, 
baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and oats.  

3. in a large bowl, mix together honey, vegetable oil, eggs and milk.  
mix in flour mixture until just moistened.  

4. stir in cranberries and pour into prepared baking dish.
bake for about 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 

5. enjoy!

okay... for some reason my bread needed to bake for about
20 extra minutes until it was baked through in the middle. 
unfortunately, this made the bread rather dry around the edges.
i think this recipe had a lot of potential, and was super healthy with no butter or sugar.
but still... it wasn't my fave.
