Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread Recipe

I absolutely LOVE making quick bread, especially when it’s packed full of warm, autumn flavours!

If you’re looking for the perfect snack to enjoy on a chilly autumn morning/evening, then look no further.

This bread is incredibly moist and dense, flavoured with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, and is loaded with oats and apple chunks.

The oats give a slightly chewy texture and the apples add bursts of juiciness. These both pair wonderfully with the flavours of this bread!

How to make Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread

To make this bread, simply grab a medium mixing bowl and whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, salt, and spices. Set aside.

In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until thick and light in colour.

Add the yogurt, oil, and vanilla extract, and whisk until combined.

Add the dry ingredients in thirds and whisk in until just combined – do not overmix.

Fold in the apple chunks.

Pour the batter into a 9×5-inch loaf pan lined with parchment paper and spread out evenly.

Bake for 50 – 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Leave to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before slicing and serving.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

What apples are best for baking?

I love my sweet AND tart apples for baking with, so here is a small list of apples I highly recommend for this bread.

  • Granny Smith: This tart apple keeps baked goods from being overly sweet.
  • Braeburn: A slightly sweeter apple that I love using in bread and muffin recipes.
  • Golden Delicious: Another sweet and juicy favourite of mine.
  • Gala: A deliciously crisp and sweet apple.

You can use any apple you like that you just enjoy eating on its own. It’s entirely up to you! Also, if desired, you can even leave the skin on (like I did for this recipe) instead of peeling them.

Must it be quick cook oats? I never keep any.

Rolled oats or old-fashioned oats work well too! :)

This recipe sounds great, but I can't have dairy. Can you suggest a substitute for the yogurt? And, will old fashion oats work instead of the quick oats?

Thank you, David

Hi David! You could use a non-dairy yogurt - there are many soy, coconut, almond, cashew-based yogurts :) Old-fashioned oats work great!
