Nutty Wheat Bread
"We prefer whole wheat bread, but sometimes it can taste a bit plain," says Blacksburg, Virginia's Amy Pennington. "I added pecans and walnuts to give this loaf wonderful flavor."

This bread is so easy, and so gooood. We use it for toast , and just to snack on. I really like the nuts. I think I will put a few more nuts the next time I make it.
