By chefindisguise.com

From blogger chefindisguise.com: "Maple syrup added a whole new layer of flavor...the caramel hint was a perfect match with the apples and walnuts. The bread was really moist and full of flavors, (with) spices, the apples, the maple syrup, the crunch of the walnuts and the rich earthy taste of oats."

1/4 teaspoon cardamom
