Expert Tips

You can toast pecans in the microwave oven by spreading them on a microwavable plate and microwaving on High 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Nuts are toasted when they are fragrant and slightly browned.

You’ll probably have part of an apple left after making the bread. Dice the remaining apple and stir into peanut butter—along with raisins and sunflower nuts—for a yummy, satisfying spread.
