E: Applesauce Bread

Josh and I love grab & go breakfasts. I’m always looking for new bars or breads that can serve the grab and go purpose and can be a yummy snack. I searched online for bread recipes and couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for. So, I combined up a few, made adjustments, and came up with the following:

Applesauce Bread:

Ingredients:

Dry Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup oats, ground (or oat flour)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Wet Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup honey (or pure maple syrup)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix wet ingredients in one bowl and dry ingredients in a second bowl. Combine wet & dry ingredients.

Spray a loaf pan or Pyrex dish with non-stick spray. Pour batter into pan and bake for 40-50 minutes (check with a knife or toothpick to make sure its done). Other optional add ins: raisins, chopped walnuts, dried cranberries or sunflower seeds.

Yum! That turned out so good Erica! I baked me some banana bread over the weekend but now I know what my next project will be. :o)

I love grab and go breakfasts, too! They are perfect on busy days, but also on days where you just want something easy.

I immediately gravitate towards banana bread since the boys love it so much. But I bet they'd love this just as much. Thanks for sharing!!

Quick breads are the best! But I eat them WAY too quickly, ha!

Holly said...

YUM!!! That looks so moist (hate that word) and delicious! They remind me (kind of sort of) of these applesauce oat muffins I made, that are so very good:

As I work early now, I've been thinking some to-go breakfast options would really come in handy. This looks absolutely delish. Applesauce makes baked goods so moist and yummy!

Would quick oats work?
