I’m checking things off of my Fall bucket list left and right! I’ve made pumpkin cookies, decorated for Fall, created a new chili recipe, bought new riding boots and made applesauce bread….. which brings us to today’s recipe. I’ve wanted to make applesauce bread ever since trying it at my grandparents’ house several years ago.
The most scrumptious healthy whole wheat applesauce bread!

With the apples and spices, this applesauce bread seemed very much like a Fall food, so that’s why I included it in my Fall bucket list. If you’re not a big fan of pumpkin or pumpkin bread (blasphemy) this recipe might just be for you. Apples are so juicy and wonderful tasting this time of year. I used my favorite apple for this recipe…. a large, crisp and predominantly sweet Honeycrisp apple.

Nutritional Information for Applesauce Bread

This bread is so moist, that you don’t need to top it with anything. It’s lovely right out of the oven with a cup of coffee. But if you must, it also pairs wonderfully with nut butter, Greek yogurt or pumpkin butter. Believe me, I know this for a fact because I’ve tried all three options!

Something to think about….

Do you have a Fall Bucket List? If so, have you checked anything off of it yet?

Have you had applesauce bread before?

What’s your favorite type of apple? I pretty much stick with Gala, Pink Lady or Honeycrisp apples.

Have a super wonderful weekend and go make a Fall food!
