Made with whole grains, spiced with cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg, and naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup and applesauce, this applesauce bread is moist, delicious and pairs perfectly with a cup of tea or coffee anytime of day.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9 x 5 loaf pan with oil, or line with parchment paper.
Mix dry ingredients: In a medium/large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and salt.
Add wet ingredients: Add the applesauce, maple syrup and milk to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Don’t overmix.
Bake: Pour batter into prepared loaf pan, optionally top with a small handful of whole or quick oats, place pan in oven and bake for 55 minutes. Let cool before slicing.
Store: Keep leftovers covered for 4 days. To keep longer, store in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
Makes 8 – 10 slices
Since this bread doesn’t have much fat, it has a slightly chewy texture. If it bothers you and you don’t mind oil, feel free to replace the non-dairy milk with oil.
