Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread

Looking for a good treat to take to Life Group, I tried an apple cinnamon oatmeal bread.  I made this with Mott's Natural Applesauce, but next time I'll make it with my own Spiced Country Applesauce.  I think using this applesauce will add some extra flavor to the bread.  If you use unseasoned applesauce, increase the cinnamon and nutmeg.  Yum.


Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread

1/4 C butter, softened
3/4 C brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 C water
1 3/4 C applesauce
1 C flour
1/2 C wheat flour
1 1/2 C oats (I used Old Fashioned)
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp.baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1-2 T brown sugar (for sprinkling on the top)

Cream together the butter and sugar. Then, add the applesauce.  Add in 2 eggs and 1/2 C water.  To the creamed mixture, add the oats, flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg.


Pour into a greased bundt pan (or 2 loaf pans).


Sprinkle the brown sugar over the top of the dough.


Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.

Cool for ~5 minutes in the pan, and then remove to a wire cooling wrack.



Cool completely before slicing.


Enjoy as a sweet treat, a yummy snack, or even breakfast. This is excellent with tea.


Overall, we liked this bread; the texture is more chewy with the oats and the applesauce, but we enjoyed it!

  3. It is fabulous! I am on my third piece;) I used the applesauce (your recipe) that I had canned last week, it was a little chunky, which totally adds to the yummy-ness of the bread!

  14. 1) This looks really yummy. I love that it uses whole wheat flour and applesauce instead of oil.

    2) You asked about doing the Lemon-Pepper Drumsticks in the crockpot. I think it would work, but the skin won't be as crispy. So, it kind of depends on how you like your chicken.
