This nut bread goes great with a cup of coffee or tea or a glass of milk. The canola oil, walnuts, sunflower seeds and flaxseed make it a heart-healthy choice. Plus -- it's an easy recipe! 1/2 cup canola oil 1 1/2 cups sugar 3 eggs 1 1/2 cups of milk with 1/4 cup of lemon juice 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 4 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup walnuts 1/4 cup sunflower seeds 1/4 cup flaxseed 1 cup raisins Measure out the milk and add the 1/4 cup lemon juice. Set aside. Measure the remaining ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Add the milk.
Using an electric mixer, stir on slow speed for 2 minutes and then on high speed for 2 to 3 minutes. Add chopped walnuts, sunflower seeds, flaxseed and raisins. Stir on low speed until nuts and raisins are blended in.
Divide the batter between 2 regular-sized greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 60 minutes. Allow nut bread to cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pans. ******************* LeAnn R.
