Apple and Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread

Apple and Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread

While I was thinking about what I wanted to do for breakfasts this week my thoughts kept coming back to apples, cinnamon and oatmeal. Although apple and cinnamon oatmeal sounded good, I thought that I would make it a bit more interesting and do an apple and cinnamon oatmeal bread. I wanted the bread to be full of apple flavour and to have nice big chunks of apple with every bite. To achieve this goal I used both large pieces of chopped apples and some of my own home made roasted apple sauce in the bread. Of course there had to be a lot of cinnamon and I thought that some raisins and chopped pecans would finish off the bread nicely. In addition to using rolled oats in the bread I garnished it with some more. The apple and cinnamon oatmeal bread turned out great! It was nice and light and fluffy and moist and full of appley goodness! I really enjoyed the texture provided by the chunks of apple, the rolled oats and the raisins and nuts. I think I might just have a new favorite quick bread.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup vanilla yogurt
1/4 apple sauce
1/4 cup oil
1 egg
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups apples (peeled, cored and cut into bite sized pieces)
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup pecan (chopped)
1 handful rolled oats

Directions:
1. Mix the brown sugar, maple syrup, yogurt, apple sauce, oil, egg and rolled oats in a bowl and let it sit for 10 minutes.
2. Mix the flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl.
3. Mix the wet and dry ingredients along with the apples, raisins and pecans until just mixed.
4. Spoon the mixture into a greased 9x5 inch loaf pan.
5. Sprinkle the rolled oats on top
6.Bake in a preheated 375F oven until a toothpick pushed into the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes.

That looks delish, I would have to pass on the cinnamon, but I'm sure the other flavors would more than compensate. Great job, Kevin.

I had bookmarked this, and made it recently. I made muffins instead of a loaf and they were amazingly delicious. I love that they're healthy, too! Thank you!

Arabic Bites said...

Melody said...

I used two eggs, no applesauce, all whole wheat flour, 4 cups of apples. Made two loafs.

Mary Aslin said...

I substituted 1/2 cup of orange marmalade for the syrup and applesauce. Left out the raisins. It was really delicious. Took a full hour to bake though. 40 minutes too short. Great recipe.

Shannon said...

Great ingredients! Unfortunately, it needed tweaking as the baking time was off. Thanks all the same for a starter recipe! :)

Looks delicious! Question, do you think gluten free flour be subbed for the flour? I think I am going to try it with GF flour and see what happens. Thanks for the recipe!

Kevin said...

Food Lovin Momma: I have not tried it but a gluten free flour alternative should work. Enjoy!
