This healthy breakfast bread is bursting with apple chunks and hearty oats!!!
Apple oat bread is delicious. Typically, my go-to breakfast is an oat bowl because it is a heart healthy breakfast and fills me until lunch time. Eating oats for breakfast doesn’t bring on the mid-morning cravings you might get from eating eggs for breakfast. Oats are considered a complex carb which are superior to the refined type. Complex carbs are digested differently than simple carbs which is why they are actually considered “healthier carbs”. A diet filled with complex carbs and whole grains is actually healthier and more effective to helping you lose weight rather than the fad no-carb diet.
Although this recipe is considered a “bread” it’s made with whole grains, oats, and all natural ingredients. Similarly, it is sweetened with all natural sweeteners like apple sauce and maple syrup. One small slice of the bread will keep you full for hours. It is a great alternative to a full breakfast if you need something quick to eat in the car on the way to work. Apple oat bread is a great treat for a child asking for a snack. Who wouldn’t love this moist (sorry if you hate that word) apple oat bread!
- 1 cup apple sauce
- 1/2 cup vegan butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup milk (I used almond)
- 2 1/4 cups oat flour
- 1/2 cups quick oats
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 large semi sweet or sweet apple (I used jazz)
- Preheat the oven to 350
- Mix together apple sauce, butter, vanilla, maple syrup and almond milk
- Add baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon
- Slowly stir in oat flour then fold in oats
- Chop the apple into small pieces
- Grease a loaf pan
- Add half the batter to loaf pan and add apple chunks
- Finally fill the loaf pan with the rest of the batter
- Bake in the oven for 45 minutes
Since it’s just myself and Justin in the house, when I make an entire loaf, I typically cut a couple slices and freeze the rest for another day. This bread will stay fresh in the freezer for a few months. Simply take it out the night before you want to eat it and let it sit in the fridge to defrost.
Serve this bread with apple butter, almond butter, or cinnamon sugar on top! Either way, you’ll LOVE it!
