Happy December, friends! Have you started your holiday shopping yet? In case you missed it, you should definitely check out the Holiday Gift Guide that I shared yesterday. I have included fun ideas in various price ranges for everyone on your list (from Mom to Dad, and all of the little ones)! Get to stuffing those stockings!
And while you’re shopping online (because really, who wants to deal with the stores at this time of year?), be sure to have a few of these loaves baking in the oven. Your house will smell amazing, and you will have one more gifts ready to go when they’re all done!

It’s the time of year when I love to have something small to share with all of my friends and family. The thought and gesture goes a long way and lets someone know that I appreciate them, and a homemade snack is always in good taste! Wrap one in a tea towel and you have the perfect hostess gift, too!
These mini loaves of quick bread are ideal for a few reasons. They are fast to prepare at a time of year when we’re all crunched for time (you only need 10 minutes)! Plus, the smaller loaf pans = a shorter baking time. Double win!
I also love that I can make these in advance, wrap them tightly, and keep them in the freezer until I need them. That way I’m not running around like a crazy person at the last minute as I scramble to pull gifts together. You can even stock your freezer with a few extras for those folks that you may have accidentally left off of your list.
Another great thing about these treats? They’re so practical! Since they can be served as a delicious homemade breakfast for visiting houseguests, or enjoyed as an afternoon snack with a cup of tea, everyone will be able to use these goodies – no re-gifting necessary!
Happy holidays, and for the full recipe head on over to Brittany’s blog, Mommy on Demand, where I’m guest posting today! You can find the recipe here. See you there!
