Apple cinnamon oatmeal bread has become a breakfast favorite in my house. It’s slightly sweet, has nice chunks of apples, and the oats give it a great consistency. The oats also make it hearty. I can eat this for breakfast and not be hungry in an hour. I like to spread a little peanut butter on it for extra protein and flavor. Who doesn’t love apples and peanut butter?
To make this bread, start by combining the dry ingredients. Mix oats, flour, sugar, ground cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a large bowl.
Then, combine the wet ingredients. Mix milk, apple sauce, eggs, canola oil, and vanilla extract in a medium bowl.
Once the wet and dry ingredients are prepared, peel and dice two apples. This will keep them from turning brown.
Add the wet ingredients, and the chopped apples to the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined and the flour is moistened. Do not over-mix or the bread will be tough.
Pour the batter into a prepared loaf pan and bake it at 350 degrees for about an hour.
I like to store mine in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This way it tastes fresh for about 5-6 days.

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread Recipe
- 1 cup quick cooking rolled oats
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 1/4 cups skim milk or whatever milk you like
- ½ cup apple sauce
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tbsp. canola (or your preferred cooking oil)
- 2 medium apples peeled and diced
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
- In a large bowl, add the oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Mix until well combined.
- In a medium bowl, add the milk, apple sauce, vanilla, eggs and oil. Whisk until well combined.
- Add the wet ingredients and the apples to the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined and all of the flour is moistened. Do not over mix.
- Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 55-65 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center of the bread should come out with moist crumbs, but no raw batter. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Then, remove the bread from the pan and place it on a wire rack to cool completely.
