Easy Apricot Breakfast Bread

Easy Apricot Breakfast Bread

I have been looking for a new breakfast recipe that is easy, healthy and tasty. I came across this recipe in my Vitamix handbook that sounded pretty good. The recipe is very easy, it takes less than 15 minutes to prepare all the ingredients and it’s a perfect addition to your breakfast routine.
The apricot bread turned out great! It was nice and earthy and moist and full of apricot and nut goodness! I really enjoyed the texture provided by the chunks of apricots and the pecans. I think I might just have a new favorite quick bread!
