This recipe is based on one I found on foodgeeks.com. I wanted mine to be a bit healthier, so I made some adjustments. It is not a "dessert" bread, but is still sweet, filling and yummy.
1/2 cup oil (I used olive oil)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups apples, diced (mine were decent size chunks)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (I used white whole wheat)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 325°F.
In a large bowl, mix together oil, applesauce, eggs, sugar, and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet mixture gradually. Add apples.
Bake in 2 regular loaf pans (greased and floured) for 70 minutes. Cool 10 minutes in the pan.
Yield: 2 loaves
