Things that don’t sound like they go together: applesauce and bread. Well- let me introduce you to your newest obsession: oat flour applesauce bread.
Oat flour applesauce bread came to me one day when I wanted to whip up something other than pumpkin (gasp), and lean into my husband’s love of applesauce! I’m so torn between apple and pumpkin flavors during this time of year. I started the fall season off strong with pumpkin, but have recently been an apple lover! I personally think pumpkin “season” lasts longer (definitely into Thanksgiving) than apple, so I’m going to double down on apple recipes while I can! If you’re looking for a good applesauce to bake with, I ordered this one from Prime Now and got to work!
I choose oat flour a majority of the time due to it’s consistency and ability to be cost effective. I grab 2-3lbs at a time from Whole Foods. Oats are also a great source of fiber! Additionally, I added some tapioca flour to make sure the middle wasn’t soupy from the heaping cup of applesauce. Tapioca flour is super versatile and a staple in my kitchen for sure.
Notice in this picture how the center came out moist but not soupy! The last thing you want is applesauce bread that is mushy in the center! This texture allows for a nice smear of nut butter on top or even warm sauteed apples (hello Thanksgiving dessert that will please all of your df +gf friends)! Endless opportunities with this guy.
What you’ll need for this recipe:
- Coconut Sugar
- Oat Flour
- Tapioca Flour
- Baking Soda
- Baking Powder
- Lots of CINNAMON
Aside from packing these up for snacking at work or enjoying as a “dessert” at home, I like to slice this up and pass out to friends! I grabbed some bags like these for quick gifting. Need more delicious loaf recipes? Check out THIS one. Trust me, it’ll be a new favorite.
