Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread

"Since the rain, cold and gray of pre-winter has set in I have the desire to be baking again. This is one of my real favorites. It bakes up with that wonderful aroma of cinnamon and apples that just welcomes everyone be they family or guests."

  1. This apple bread had something most apple bread recipes do not have! Plenty of CINNAMON! I added one pack of instant oatmeal as called for, but due to sugar content, did not use the pack on top of the bread. I just used some plain oatmeal. Very good. Thanks for posting!
  2. This was wonderful. I loved the flavor and it has healthy ingredients. I used multigrain oatmeal and next time I think I'll only use 1/2 a package for topping and put the other 1/2 in the bread. My crumbs kept falling off the top :( So good, will keep this recipe handy for using on a regular rotation
  3. Mmmmm-Mmmmm. I love, love this recipe. The added bonus for me is the use of all LF ingredients. What a treat for this carboholic. I used for the oatmeal part - 1 packet of Instant Maple and Brownsugar. Also threw in a handful of chopped up Honeycrisp apple. I also love the addition of cinnamon and chunky applesauce. So so good. I slather on a heaping of recipe#53751 and I'm all set!!! Thanks Anna for such a delightful applebread recipe~ Made for MarketTag~
  4. Very impressed with this recipe! I like that the recipe called for healthy ingredients, substitutions I usually make on my own. I followed the recipe exactly, but did add a chopped apple because I could only find unsweetened applesauce (not chunky unsweetened). I also used the Quaker Oats Lower Sugar Apples & Cinnamon instant oatmeal, the Splenda makes the bread very sweet on its own. Bread was delicious when still warm from the oven. Thanks for a yummy and healthier recipe.
  5. Really good bread! Didn't have Splenda, but when using regular sugar, did some brown sugar. My applesauce was the Mott's Peach flavored and it worked just fine. Didn't have instant oatmeal, so just used regular oats. For the topping I used the topping from Dutch Apple Bread (#93013) and that hit the spot! Mine baked up perfect in one hour even using an 8x4 inch pan. Thanks for a yummy apple recipe!
