Brown Bread- High Fiber & Low Calorie

Hope you are all having an awesome start to your weekend :)

After my no rise bread experience many of you lovely bloggies provided me with some kick-ass bread recipes. I could not help myself but give this sweet bread a shot, thanks Ercia for the recipe!

Brown Bread

  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup honey 
  • 1 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup dates, I chopped up 6 dates  
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar, add to milk

1. In a separate bowl combine egg and honey and mix together. 

2. In a larger bowl mix in all dry ingredients. 
3. Add honey & egg mixture to the dry ingredients. 

4. Add milk & vinegar to bowl. 
5. Add chopped up dates, raisins, or walnuts. I chopped up about 6 dates, and added a bit of walnuts that I had. 

6. Pour mixture into a 9x5 bread pan. 
7. Place in oven at 350 degrees for about 40- 45 minutes. 

The result : 

As you can see this bread was welcomed by the family ;) 

I really enjoyed it! This bread is not only good but it is high in fiber and low in calories. The bread makes 12 servings and  I calculated that per serving this bread has about 130 calories, not too shabby huh! 

How has your weekend been so far? 


  1. ooh date bread? hells yeah! i wish i was part of your family so i could have a piece lol

  2. yayyyyyyy! Thanks for the shout out! Isn't it total deliciousness? Love your add ins- yum yum! Hope you have a great weekend :)

  3. Oh my goodness that bread looks simply devine! And I have a penchant for dates-it's difficult for me to buy them though because they are so calorie dense and have such a high sugar content, and I inevitably end up eating too many! Hopefully you have more self-control than I do :)

  4. oh i may have to try this bread recipe! terrific weekend-sad that it is monday tomorrow:(

  5. The brown bread looks fantastic!
