Extra-Nutty Nut 'n Raisin Bread

Contributed by: LeAnn R. Ralph

This nut bread goes great with a cup of coffee or tea or a glass of milk. The canola oil, walnuts, sunflower seeds and flaxseed make it a heart-healthy choice. Plus - it's an easy recipe!

  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk with 1/4 cup of lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed
  • 1 cup raisins

Measure out the milk and add the 1/4 cup lemon juice. Set aside. Measure the remaining ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Add the milk. Using an electric mixer, stir on slow speed for 2 minutes and then on high speed for 2 to 3 minutes. Add chopped walnuts, sunflower seeds, flaxseed and raisins. Stir on low speed until nuts and raisins are blended in.

Divide the batter between 2 regular-sized greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 60 minutes.

Allow nut bread to cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pans.
