I ran across a similar recipe on the King Arthur web site, but not having their exact ingredients, I substituted my own, and got this lovely loaf of tea bread. This is wonderful with butter, or with plain or flavored cream cheese.

Ingredients

1 c
organic sugar
2 large
eggs
1/2 c
coconut oil
1 1/2 tsp
vanilla flavor
1/2 c
whole wheat flour
1 c
all purpose flour
1/4 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1 1/2 tsp
cinnamon
1/4 tsp
cloves
1/4 tsp
nutmeg
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 c
rolled oats (uncooked oatmeal)
3/4 c
applesauce
1/2 c
chopped walnuts
2 Tbsp
rolled oats for topping

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the sugar, eggs, coconut oil, and vanilla until mixture is creamy.
2
In a separate bowl, mix together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, spices, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in the mixing bowl. Blend in the rolled oats, applesauce, and walnuts. Place the mixture in a greased loaf pan. Press the 2 tablespoons of rolled oats evenly over the top of the batter. I used a long teabread-sized pan (12x4x3"), but a regular 9x5" loaf pan will also work.
3
Bake for 45-55 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean when tested in the center of the loaf. Cool completely in the pan before slicing.
* A 9x5" loaf pan may take an hour to bake.
