Delicious Breakfast Breads

I love baking new flavors of breads and muffins that are ready to grab and go on busy school mornings. My kids also love helping me bake so it's fun for all of us! I stumbled across this
 Glazed Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread from Lovely Little Kitchen
and knew that it would be the perfect recipe to use up the last of the applesauce I had hanging around in the fridge. The recipe makes two loaves, so you can keep one out and freeze one for later or share one with a friend. The glaze is made of applesauce and powdered sugar and keeps the loaves from drying out in the fridge. The bread is not overly sweet at all and I really loved the texture the oats gave it. Give it a try and let me know what you think! 
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

  •  
    Glaze
    • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
    • 1/4 cup applesauce
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and grease two loaf pans. I used two 1.5 quart Pyrex glass loaf pans. In a large bowl, mix by hand flour, oats, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder. Set aside.
    In another bowl, mix sugar, oil, eggs, yogurt, applesauce, and vanilla, then stir into dry ingredients by hand until just combined.
    Divide batter between the two loaf pans and bake for 43-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    Remove from the oven and whisk together the powdered sugar and applesauce for the glaze.
    When the bread has cooled for a bit, remove from the pan onto a cooling rack and spoon the glaze over the top. Allow the glaze to set before slicing.
