It’s a mouthful to say, and it is by no means light on tongue either. This is one hearty bread.

Sun-dried tomato, spinach and feta whole wheat quick bread

Slowly, without realizing it, my diet over the past few weeks has devolved into basically just oats, nut butter and vegetables. As I started upping the mileage on my runs, I desperately needed to add some non-oat based carbs, and this bread was a great way to do it.

I love of all things disgustingly healthy, so this bread is insanely good for you. I won’t lie though, adding some butter takes it to a whole different level. Just do it.
