Easy Morning Glory Quick Bread

The classic flavors of Morning Glory muffins get a makeover in this quick bread. It’s subtly sweetened with honey, made with high-fiber cereal, and is the ideal morning treat!

I do a few things really well:

  • I obsess over various new topics. (Hence the reason I started my podcast! Current obsessions often = future episodes.)
  • I bake quick bread recipes. (In fact, this banana bread has become one of THE most popular posts on my site.)
  • I eat fiber.

And sometimes, I do combos of all of the above!

Say hello to my Morning Glory Quick Bread.

This recipe was an instant hit around my house. Subtly sweetened with honey and sporting a fiber boost thanks to the use of high-fiber cereal, this quick bread makes a wonderful start to your day with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk. Or, enjoy it any time of day as a sweet treat.

Sure, you *could* look for fiber in places like a fiber supplement, but wouldn’t you *rather* look for it in a loaf pan full of real food? I know I would! Give this easy baking project a try and let me know what you think! It’s a delicious way to start your day. ~Regan
