I stated in one of my previous post that I was not quite ready for fall to arrive and then things like this bread happen. Spiced with cinnamon and sugar it is the perfect thing to wake up to on those cool crisp mornings served alongside a steaming cup of coffee or tea. Fall, I am ready for you. Let me have one more weekend for some fun in the sun then I will be 100% on board.
The applesauce makes this whole wheat bread incredibly moist and the raisins add an additional touch of sweetness as well as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Not only is it easy to prepare, but it’s relatively low in fat as well.
I froze part of the bread by wrapping individual slices in saran wrap and storing it in a Ziploc bag to pull out later for a quick and healthy breakfast. I am so glad I tested this recipe out before fall officially starts because I have a feeling it is going to be around a lot in the upcoming months.
You can easily add other ingredients such as nuts or diced apples and if raisins aren’t really your thing you can simply leave them out. My only request is that you don’t let this wonderful season pass by without making this delicious applesauce bread.
