Whole Wheat Friendship Bread

A Healthy Take on the Friendship Bread

 I love the friendship bread but decided to make some changes to see how it would turn out!  The out come was not as sweet but sweet enough!  I followed the recipe for the 10 days to a tee…  made my four starters for the next ten days…  The changes that I made were at the point where you add ingredients to what’s left in the bowl.  Here is what I did!

3 eggs

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 1/2 cup brown sugar

1 cup canola oil

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup oatmeal

1/2 cup hand crushed walnuts

1/4 cup golden flax seeds

1/4 cup dried currants

1/4 cup dried cranberries

2 Tbs plain Greek Yogurt

2 TBS smooth peanut butter

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp almond extract


  • I didn’t do it here, but I think a TBS of local honey would make a nice flavor addition!!!

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Spray 5 Mini loaf pans with baking no stick.  Sprinkle the bottom of each pans with a pinch of brown sugar.

Add all of the ingredients into what was left in the bowl after dividing out the four starters.  Mix well and evenly divide the mixture between the 5 loaf pans.  Sprinkle the tops with some more of the flax seeds.  Place the pans on baking sheet.  Bake for 50 – 60 minutes.

Serve and Enjoy!!!

*I have saved out two starters for myself.  One of them, I am going to add whole wheat flour on day 5 and day 10.  I’ll know how it turns out on bake day!
