Apple Harvest Banana Bread is an easy bread to make and adds healthy whole grains and apples. It is a great snack or delicious with any meal.
I love this time of year and become a little obsessed with apples. Actually, I eat an apple almost every single day. Bananas are a different story. I love a perfect banana or a great banana bread, but that is where my banana love stops. I don’t care for a banana in my smoothies, and the frozen banana treats aren’t for me. Boy, I wish that wasn’t the case because I am seeing some amazing ice creams made from frozen bananas.
I often use applesauce in my baked treats instead of oil, so when I had some bananas threatening to go over to the dark side, I knew that it was time to make some bread. I decided to add grated apple instead of apple sauce for fiber and pure maple syrup for additional flavor to this bread. I also added some raisins, pecans, and yummy spices that remind me of fall.
Here are a couple more recipes that my family enjoys!
The grated apple made this bread so tender and moist, and I really enjoyed all of the goodies in this bread. I ate a slice of this bread at every meal until it was gone. It was the perfect sweet that I enjoy with a savory meal or a bowl of soup too.
