Eggless Apple Walnut Bread–Very healthy Quick Bread

I get very excited to do dishes that are healthy. Generally sweet bakes have loads of butter, sugar and white flour in it. I try to make them healthy and tasty.. In my house people do not appreciate Oats much, but I try to tweak it and hide it in baked goodies and reveal the secret that the dish has oats after its gets the "Tasty and yummy" certificate... I guess lot of us to try to feed healthy stuff by hiding them in the dish... This bread was a very easy winner in getting the "Tasty and yummy" certificate and wins my "very healthy and easy" certificate and it is a win-win. A healthy quick bread which has no processed ingredients. I got this recipe from here. This stays well (when un cut) for at least 2 days in the fridge. I reheat it for 15 – 20 seconds in the microwave and serve them. It also makes a perfect lunchbox dish. It is a good idea to plastic wrap it if storing it in the fridge.

Method
Mix flax seeds and water well for about 3 minutes until it forms a gooey liquid and set aside. This is the egg substitute.
Grind oats to a powder and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 330 degrees F on Convection mode (Baking mode is 350 degrees F) and grease a loaf pan and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, sieve all the dry ingredients (flour, wheat germ, oats powder, cardamom powder, nutmeg powder, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon powder) well
Wash and peel the apples. Cut them into very small chunks. You can also grate them if u do not want chunks.
Add the raisins, almonds, apples, honey, buttermilk and flax seeds mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until combined thoroughly.
Transfer this to the greased loaf pan and cook in the preheat oven for 30 – 35 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes clean. Mine took 33 minutes.
