1 ½ cups whole-wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt

Directions

  2. Rinse or scrub fresh fruits under running water before preparing.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease the bottom and sides of an 8- or 9-inch bread pan.

  10. Remove the loaf from the pan and let cool completely on a rack. Slice to serve.
  11. Wrap to store for several days or freeze for up to a month.

I really liked this bread. The soaked oats made for a nice texture. The cooking time for a 9-inch pan was spot on.
