Healthy May - Week 2

Well, week two has been okay, although I didn't achieve many of the things I set out to do last week... just stress and being busy and whatnot. But I do have an awesome recipe to share with you :) Hope you all had a good week two :)

WALNUT AND FRUIT LOAF
Makes 2 loaves (24 slices)
Ingredients:
½ cup sultanas
½ cup chopped dried apricots
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup hot water
400g can lite sweetened condensed milk
½ cup golden syrup
3 cups wholemeal flour
½ cup chopped walnuts
Method:
·         Preheat oven to 150 degrees. Line 2 loaf tins.
·         Place sultanas, apricots and baking soda in large bowl, stir in hot water.
·         Add condensed milk and golden syrup. Stir until combined.
·         Add flour and walnuts, stir until well combined.
·         Spoon mixture into loaf tins. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.
·         Allow to cool in the tin. Turn out of tin and slice to serve.

*Tip: Cut into slices once cooled, wrap each indivudual slice in gladwrap and freeze so it doesn't go stale and you can take a peice whenever you need to. Great for when you sleep in and you miss breakfast - grab a slice, chuck it in your bag, and by the time you get to work it's defrosted and you have a healthy breakfast!
