Who doesn't love sweet quick breads? While they're not too terribly time-consuming to make, in my opinion anything that can be sped up is worth speeding up. Enter the Whole Wheat Sweet Quick Bread Mix.
Make one large mix and enjoy quicker quick breads all the time. I will be making different breads with this mix throughout the fall and winter, so be sure to mix some up so you can enjoy the other recipes when they come.
