Apple-Cinnamon Granola Bread

2-1/ 2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/ 4 cups whole wheat flour 
3/4 cup granola 
2 tablespoons sugar 
1 envelope (1/4 ounce or 2 1/4 tsp) Fleischmann's RapidRise Yeast 
1 teaspoon salt 
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
1/2 cup water 
1/2 cup milk 
1/2 cup applesauce 
2 tablespoons butter or margarine


1. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, granola, sugar, undissolved yeast, salt, and ground cinnamon. Heat water, milk, applesauce, and butter until very warm (120 to 130 F). Gradually add to dry ingredients. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

2. Roll dough to 12 x 8-inch rectangle. Beginning at short end, roll up tightly as for jelly roll. Pinch seam and ends to seal. Place, seam side down, in greased 9X5 in. loaf pan. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.

3. Bake at 375 F for 30 minutes or until done. Remove from pan; cool on wire rack.

Makes 12 servings.
