Spiced Applesauce Bread

A better-for-you spiced quick bread that's chock full of applesauce!
Course: Breakfast
Servings: 1 loaf


  • 1 1/4 c. unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 Tbsp. milk (regular dairy or almond milk)
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 c. whole wheat or white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1 apple, peeled


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, mix applesauce, brown sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, and milk.
  • In a separate bowl (or the same bowl, if you want to be lazy like me), mix all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Stir with wet ingredients until just combined.
  • Using a cheese grater, grate peeled apple directly into bowl, then stir briefly to incorporate. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake 60-65 minutes.
