Since becoming more of a "fooditarian," I've stopped buying many processed food items such as cereal, bread, crackers etc. and have opted to make my own (which, honestly, isn't as challenging as you may think). I feel much better about what I'm eating and feeding my family because the food that we're eating is REAL, not to mention that it tastes much better. I had a bunch of nuts, seeds and unsweetened dried fruit leftover from making homemade muesli and trailmix, so I decided to make a fruit and nut bread that could also be made into crisps (raincoast crisp-like crackers). Two recipes in one—can't beat that! This recipe is so quick and easy and the end products are delicious. My recipe was inspired by one that I came across in The Whitewater Cooks With Friends Cookbook "Rosemary Nut Crackers."
Combine flours, baking soda and salt in a large bowl and mix well
Add buttermilk, honey, and brown sugar and mix until just incorporated
Add nuts, seeds, ground flaxseed, dried fruit, and coconut and combine well
Pour batter into 2 greased bread pans
Bake at 350 F for about 35 minutes, until golden and springy to touch
Remove from oven and allow both loaves to cool on a cooling rack
