Though I’m a sucker for Paleo apple pie bars and healthy apple crisps, I also like less sweet or luxurious apple desserts.

This is the recipe for apple bread!

This healthier apple bread won’t put you in a sugar coma since it uses less additional sweetener than typical bread recipes. It’s like a slice of apple bliss. 

We process oats in a blender to make whole grain oat flour instead of utilizing ordinary flour. This serves as the foundation for a nutritious oatmeal bread that we carefully decorate with fresh apples.

Compared to white flour, oats raise blood sugar less and are a fantastic source of complex carbs.

Rolled Oats:

  • To make oat flour for this nutritious apple bread recipe, we combine some rolled oats instead of using all-purpose flour.
  • You can use quick oats, instant oats, or old-fashioned oats. I make a gluten-free apple bread using sprouted oats.
  • To make the recipe grain-free, substitute two cups of almond or cassava flour for the oats. One and a half cups of gluten-free all-purpose flour is another option.
  • Unsweetened Applesauce: This bread uses a lot of applesauce! It adds natural sweetness and moisture to this simple bread recipe, and it also partially replaces the oil and sweetener.
  • Additionally, it intensifies the apple flavor, giving this bread a comforting fall flavor. One of my favorite ways to celebrate apple season is with this applesauce oatmeal bread, which is a perfect match for homemade applesauce.
  • If you don’t have applesauce on hand but do have bananas, you can use two large, ripe bananas in place of the applesauce.
  • Just mash the bananas in a big basin and go on as directed in the recipe. Because the bananas give the bread extra sweetness and wetness, I adore adjusting the recipe in this way.

Fresh Apples:

  • To add small bursts of apple flavor and texture to the bread batter, we peel and cut one large apple.
  • Any variety of apples will work well in this recipe! I usually use Fuji or Granny Smith apples, but golden delicious, pink lady, and gala apples are also excellent options. More apple flavor will come from tart apples, such as granny Smith apples.

 

Eggs:

  • Big eggs contribute to the bread’s airy texture and rise. I haven’t tested the recipe using powdered egg replacer or flax eggs as an egg substitute yet.
  • Oatmeal baked products without eggs, in my experience, usually come out extremely dense, with a center that is almost raw or undercooked.
  • If this is acceptable to you, you may try making two flax eggs with ground flax seed, chia eggs with chia seeds, etc.

Avocado Oil:

  • Rich and moisturizing, avocado oil gives the bread the much-needed fat content to enhance its flavor and texture.
  • I purposely use less to keep the bread lower in fat, but you may increase the amount to one or two tablespoons to produce moist apple bread with more richness and wetness.
  • If you’d like, you can use melted butter, coconut oil, or even olive oil in place of the avocado oil. Canola oil is also effective.

 

Pure Maple Syrup:

  • I use pure maple syrup to increase the sweetness of the bread without making it taste overly sweet. If you want a sweeter treat, you can increase the amount of pure maple syrup in a similar way to the oil content.
  • If you like a sweeter treat, you can also add one to four teaspoons of brown sugar, coconut sugar, or plain white sugar in addition to the pure maple syrup.

Pure Vanilla Extract:

  • This gluten-free apple bread recipe gets a warm flavor boost from a dash of vanilla. You can skip it if you don’t have any with you.

 

Baking powder:

  • Added to bread to help it rise and provide some airiness, baking powder is a leavening agent.
  • Sea salt and ground cinnamon are essential for achieving the beloved apple cinnamon flavor in baked goods. Without adding too much sugar, the aromas are enhanced, and the bread tastes sweeter thanks to the sea salt.
  • To achieve the look of apple spice bread, you can use pumpkin spice, if you have any on hand, for the cinnamon.

Optional Extras:

To commemorate a sugar-cinnamon passion, mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl to make a cinnamon-sugar combination that may be sprinkled over the batter.

Recipe for Nutritious Oatmeal Apple Bread:

  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and place parchment paper inside a 9 by 5 inch loaf pan. If you don’t have parchment paper on hand, you can use cooking spray to give your loaf pan a little oil.
  • The apple should be peeled, cored, and then cut into small pieces. Instead of using apple chunks, you can also shred the apples using a box grater if you’d rather.
  • Place the oats in a powerful blender and process for 30 seconds, or until a flour consistency is achieved. To blend all of the dry ingredients together, add the baking powder, sea salt, and ground cinnamon to the blender. (Note: You may also stir the remaining dry ingredients into the flour). Blend for a few seconds. Put it away until you’re ready to use it.
  • The next day, this tasty recipe for apple oatmeal bread becomes even more delightful.
  • For up to five days, keep any remaining bread in the refrigerator in an airtight container or zip-lock bag. The bread can also be frozen for up to three months in a freezer bag.
  • If you live in a less humid environment, you can keep the loaf pan on the counter for up to two days, wrapped with plastic wrap.

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the applesauce, eggs, avocado oil, pure maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly to fully incorporate the wet components.
  • Mix thoroughly until a thick batter forms after adding the dry ingredients to the bowl containing the wet components. Add the chopped apples and stir until they are well mixed into the batter.
  • Transfer the apple bread mixture into the ready pan, making sure to level it out evenly. Feel free to add more oats to the batter’s surface for aesthetic purposes.

  • Bake the loaf pan for forty minutes on the center rack of a preheated oven, covered with aluminum foil. After taking off the foil, bake the bread for a further 20 to 30 minutes, or until it comes out clean and has a gently browned top. When quick breads are baked through and the interior temperature reaches 190 to 200 degrees F, they are done. For optimal results, you can check the internal temperature of the bread by inserting a digital thermometer into the center of it.
  • Before slicing into individual pieces and serving, let the bread cool to room temperature.
