Almond Poppy Seed Bread

Sometimes you have to break from the regular  eggs or cereal breakfast for a little treat. I love homemade breads. My favorites include banana, zucchini or coffee cakes, but my husband likes poppy seed. Well really he likes those huge poppy seed muffins from Costco. Have you ever seen the ingredient list for those? It's about a mile long, so this is what I make instead. Easiest is the bread loaf, but you can make it in muffins, mini muffins or giant ones too! Plus mine have frosting, and still aren't as bad for you as the pre-made kind! Oh, and they freeze, so make them on the weekend and pull out on the weekdays!
