Apricot Orange Bread


1 package Namaste Foods Muffin and Scone Mix
½ tsp. baking soda
1/4 - 1/3 cup sugar or honey (to taste)
2 eggs
½ cup dried chopped apricots
1 cup orange juice
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup nuts (optional), whichever kind you prefer


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a loaf pan with non-stick vegetable spray.
  2. Mix baking soda, muffin mix and sugar in mixing bowl. (If you are using honey instead, you’ll add that in the next step.) Combine eggs, oil, orange juice (and honey) in another small bowl. Add wet ingredients to dry until just blended. Stir in the chopped apricots and nuts, if desired.
  3. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Run knife around edge of pan when finished baking. Cool in pan 10-15 minutes then take out and cool completely on cooking rack.


  • If you have oranges in the fridge, do use fresh juice and add 1 tablespoon of orange zest to the batter. Also, if you’d prefer to use one 8¼ oz. can of chopped, drained apricots, please do.
