This is one of my favorite quick breads. It is unique because you use the ENTIRE orange in it and you don't have to use a zester! It have a wonderful citrus flavor and is moist and very delicious. I changed the original recipe to include whole wheat flour, cut the oil in half and substituted applesauce, and skipped the nuts. You can see the original recipe here. I did add 4 scoops of unflavored protein powder, since I will be having it for breakfast. I have added dried cranberries before, and that is very yummy too!
