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.

- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup pecan (chopped)
- 1 handful rolled oats
- Mix the brown sugar, maple syrup, yogurt, apple sauce, oil, egg and rolled oats in a bowl and let it sit for 10 minutes.

Apples and cinnamon go so well together. This sounds good!
mmmm, cinnamon. Sounds and looks perfect!
I love this. No reason to skip breakfast with that treat.
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.
What a scrumptious showpiece off your rustic homemade loaf! Delicious!
Loving all the chunky bits in there. Yum
That must smell amazing while baking! What a great recipe!
Oooh, how easy is that?! I’m a sucker for both quick breads and baked good full of apples, so this is already in the bookmarks folder 🙂
I made this today Kevin. It is delicious and just as you described. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
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!

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

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.
I just made this on Sunday and it was yummmmmmmy – I added a crumb topping and it was yummy, my husband loved! Thanks for posting!
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!
Food Lovin Momma: I have not tried it but a gluten free flour alternative should work. Enjoy!
