Manna Organics Fruit & Nut Manna Bread Review

Manna Organics Fruit & Nut Manna BreadThe front of the packaging for Manna Organics Fruit & Nut Manna Bread reads like the healthy, wholesome bread I would like to make at home ... if I were the bread making type (I'm not). 100% sprouted whole grain; high fiber; yeast free, organic. Then a look at the ingredients list reveals all wholesome, natural ingredients that I would love to include in my own homemade bread ... sprouted organic wheat kernels, filtered water, organic raisins, organic dates (organic dates, organic oat flour), organic almonds, organic cashews, organic hazelnuts, organic cinnamon, organic nutmeg.

But I will confess, this bread sat in my freezer for probably a month before my dad came for a visit and decided he wanted to try it. We hadn't planned ahead, so he just took it out of the freezer and put it in the microwave (2 minutes to heat up the entire bread and then 1 more minute to make it a little warmer). He cut it in 7 slices (the recommended serving slices) and reached for a slice. "Tanya, this is so good" he said. "You have to try it." I said, "Really ... okay." And he was totally spot on!

I ate a big slice with no spread to really get the flavors. First off, it's a little sweet, but not a too much so - and totally expected since this is a "fruit & nut" bread. The texture was very moist and dense, sort of like a bread pudding, and of course, you could taste the ingredients - the fruit is all crushed up but chunks of almonds are all over. I could have used a little more cinnamon - but I'm just nitpicking here - this bread is so gosh darn good!
