Wow! Fantastic & delicious! I made some adjustments of course but this bread came out so hearty that it eats like a meal. Here she goes: I used 1.5 cups of whole wheat flour instead of white and added: 3/4 cup of quick oats, 1/2 cup of brown sugar instead of white sugar, 1/4 chopped and toasted pecans, 3 egg whites, 1/2 cup of mashed fresh apricots with peel removed and 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce, 1/3 cup fresh chopped apricots instead of dried, 1/2 tsp nutmeg 1 tsp cinnamon all the other ingredients were the same... Lovely & yummy bread! Will make again!

I've made this bread a couple times now, and I never once made it using Apricots. I've also always used 1 cup Splenda in place of other sugars. I used a dried fruit mix (mainly raisins) chopped, in place of the apricots my first loaf, added a tiny bit of pure vanilla extract, added a pinch of cloves and a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. Second loaf I used 2 packages of Planters Vanilla Cranberry Trail Mix, separated the nuts from dried cranberries, chopped both up fine and added in place of the apricots. I also added pure vanilla extract (1 tsp), a pinch of cinnamon and cloves, turned out spectacular! I am going to make this bread again substituting pineapple instead of the applesauce to see how this works, while adding chopped walnuts in place of the apricots once again. This bread's so easy to work with, and make modifications to. I absolutely love it and so does everyone who's tasted it! My new breakfast loaves ... delicious eaten with low fat yogurts. Will make again and again and again!!! Thank you so much for the recipe!

Very tasty and healthy. I used fresh apricots, and even pureed some instead of using applesauce. Like others suggested, I used half whole wheat flour. This recipe is easily adapted to whatever you have on hand. Thanks for sharing!

This is a great recipe. I used an egg and had no carrot so I added half a banana and some orange extract instead but the texture of these was very light and the flavor was delicious. I did not use glaze and they were sweet enough to go perfectly with tea!

SO SO Good! I doubled the recipe. I used a half cup of wheat bran and 3 cups of whole wheat flour, freshly picked apricots and I added cinnamon for spice. I didn't have any applesauce so I used all canola oil. For the egg substitute, I used 1 cup of soy flour (since I doubled the recipe) and a cup of water to equate the soy flour. On one loaf, I put some sliced almonds after glazing with the confectioner's sugar. Maybe I'll try oats next time. This recipe is a definite keeper. Thanks much!

I love this recipe. Not too much sugar or fat. I use a combination of wheat flour, oat flour and flax seed instead of all white flour, and I use real eggs instead of substitutes. If you're looking for a really sweet carrot bread, this isn't for you, but I like it for what it is.

really terrific. I used a real egg and a bit more applesauce than the recipe calls for and it turned out fantastic.
