Apple Flax Bread


Hello there readers!  It's been a while.  I have to be honest - since having the baby I haven't had a whole lot of mental energy for the kitchen.  It used to be that I'd walk around dreaming up recipes to post on here.  Now I mostly walk around looking for coffee.  I eat at my kitchen counter.  I have waaaaay too many cookies in my diet.  Smoothies and salads are all but absent from my world.  I'm busy.  I'm breastfeeding.  I'm mesmerized by the new little boy in my life.  My jeans are tight and I can't believe that most of the things in my closet used to fit MY body, but I'm happy.  Happy and extremely fortunate.  Grateful.  Now, with spring finally coming to Montreal, I'm feeling inspired to start cleaning up my diet again.

I need baked goods in my life.  This is a fact.  If I don't bake healthy things, I will stuff my face with cookies.  Not healthy cookies, cookies that my evil husband brings home from the drug store because he, like me, is a cookie pig.  So here we go - Apple Flax Bread.  Step one towards edging out chocolate chunk cookies and getting back into my jeans.  Also; dang tasty.  I hope you like it.  It's very low in sugar.  If you prefer a sweeter bread, double the sugar, or add a few tablespoons of maple syrup.
