Grape-Nuts Quick Bread- Mom's

Kathie Carr


Both my Mom and Grandma made this quick bread often. It is delicious, and all the kids ate it without complaint, instead of their usual white bread.

I found the recipe in Mom's file cut from an old Grape-Nuts cereal box. Its probably from the 1950's. Still a wonderful quick bread and nutritous alternative to white bread!

The picture is scanned from the original cut from a vintage cereal box of Grape-Nuts.
