Adapted from drsinatra.com

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
2 eggs
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup molasses
1 medium apple, peeled, cored, and finely chopped (I used Gala)
1/2 cup golden seedless raisins
rolled oats, to top (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease 8x4" loaf pan. Steam the chopped apple and raisins on the stove or in the microwave until tender. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl mix together flour, wheat germ, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon zest. In a small bowl whisk together eggs, canola oil, honey, and molasses.
3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in fruit and the pour batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle rolled oats over top then bake loaf 30-35 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.
4. Let loaf cool then slice and serve warm with a bit of butter. Enjoy!
