I was so tempted to re-post this recipe for yummy Craisin Good Cookies this week (they are really good if you'd like to make some cookies this week!), but when I saw this Cranberry Oat Bread I couldn't wait to try it out!
The recipe is actually for your bread machine, so if you're one of those girls (like me!) who just had to have a bread machine a few years back, go ahead and dust it off and let it do the baking today! (If you have any suggestions on how to adapt this recipe for folks who don't have a bread machine I'd love to hear them – I know there has to be a way to make it without the machine but I'm not sure how. . . I'm betting quite a bit of kneading will be required!)
And if you're looking for a few other recipes to use those BOGO Craisins with try out this yummy chicken salad – just substitute the craisins for golden raisins . . . yummmmm!
