The Ultimate Fruit & Nut Bread

This recipe is surprisingly easy and so tasty! For this loaf, you basically need to use 1 cup of mixed nuts and seeds and 1 ½ cups of mixed dried fruit. The below recipe is the quantities of nuts, seeds and fruit that I used, but feel free to mix things up with what you have on hand. Hazelnuts or walnuts would be great, and figs or cranberries would be lovely too. I use the flaxseeds and flaxseed meal as the binding agent though, so I would keep that in, or add a couple of tablespoons of chia gel instead. Enjoy!
