Applesauce bread

There’s zucchini bread for the summer and pumpkin bread for the fall…but here’s a cozy quick bread that works for anytime. This spiced and iced Applesauce Bread recipe! This one is perfectly spiced with cinnamon, allspice and cloves, and studded with oats. It’s so tasty and perfect for special occasions! Suffice it to say, it went over very well in our house. Take it over the top with an easy icing drizzle. It’s great for an occasional treat or as a way to use up applesauce. Here’s how to make this impressive loaf!

Ingredients in applesauce bread

This applesauce bread is an easy quick bread, just like zucchini, pumpkin, and banana bread. But the fruit puree here is applesauce! We got the idea from brainstorming ways to use applesauce after making our family favorite applesauce cookies. Turns out: applesauce works in quick breads too! Here’s what you’ll need for this tasty bread:

  • All purpose and whole wheat flour: A mix of flours adds a nuance to the flavor a pinch of nutrients.
  • Granulated and brown sugar: Using two sugars also adds nuance to the flavor.
  • Eggsbaking soda, baking powder, & salt: The regular players for a quick bread.
  • Cinnamon, allspice, and cloves: The perfect mix of spices.
  • Applesauce: We like unsweetened, but you can use sweetened if it’s all you have.
  • Neutral oilWe like oil in our quick breads because it doesn’t require melting like butter: one less step! It also makes it dairy free and easily vegan.
  • Vanilla: A hefty dose of vanilla gives it a smooth flavor.
Applesauce bread

What to expect with this applesauce bread

While it’s not as rich as banana, applesauce adds a nice lightness and moistness to breads and also works as a substitute for oil. Here are a few things to expect with this applesauce bread:

  • The texture is light and moist, not rich and oily. It’s not quite as dense or oily as a typical quick bread: the texture is lighter here.
  • Oats add interest to the texture. There’s just a 1/2 cup, but it adds a nice intriguing lightness as well.
  • Bake time depends on the pan size. Keep in mind: bake time varies whether you use an 8-inch or 9-inch pan. You’ll want to pull the bread when it feels solid and a toothpick comes out with a few crumbs clinging on. Don’t wait until it’s fully clean, or you risk overbaking!

Step it up with powdered sugar icing!

This applesauce bread is delicious as is and perfectly sweet: it’s a total treat bread! (It’s not really in the healthy category, like you could argue with this Healthy Pumpkin Bread.) So if you really want to take it to treat status, drizzle it with our easy powdered sugar icing! It takes literally one minute to stir together. Here are some notes:

  • Use our 1 minute powdered sugar icing recipe. It’s so fast to stir up, and works for any diet.
  • For less sugar, use a half recipe! You can use just a half of the recipe for a glaze that’s lightly sweet. Or use a full recipe for maximum wow factor.
Applesauce bread recipe

Mix-ins for applesauce bread

Of course, you can customize this bread even further with mix ins! If you like chunks in your bread, there are lots of options. Here are a few ideas of mix-ins for applesauce bread:

  • Walnuts
  • Pecans
  • Hazelnuts
  • Almonds
  • Chocolate chips
  • Dried cherries or cranberries
  • Shredded coconut

Vegan variation

Do you eat vegan, or cooking for someone who is? Because this applesauce bread is made with oil instead of butter, it’s naturally dairy free. As we noted above, we prefer using oil in our quick breads because it makes them even quicker: you don’t have to melt butter! Here’s the only thing you need to do to make this bread vegan:

  • Use flax eggs! A flax egg is simply ground flax seed mixed with water. When it sits, it forms a gel like substance that you can use in vegan baked goods like muffins, cookies, and quick breads. We’ve found it works well, like in our Vegan Banana Bread and Vegan Zucchini Bread. It changes the texture a bit, but it’s still just as delicious.
Applesauce bread

Applesauce bread storage

This applesauce bread stores very well! You’ll find on the day of baking it has a crisp crust, but as you store it it becomes softer. (It’s delicious both ways!) We like to keep it at room temperature because it’s so beautifully moist and you can eat it right away. But here are a few options for storage:

  • How long does applesauce bread last at room temperature? 4 to 5 days, covered in aluminum foil..
  • Can you refrigerate applesauce bread? You can! Keep in mind that it does dry out a bit in the fridge. It also tastes a little better at room temp, so if you refrigerate it be sure to let it come to room temperature before enjoying.
  • Can you freeze applesauce bread? Yes! Slice it into pieces and wrap it in plastic wrap and then place it in a freezer safe bag or container. It stays good for about 3 months.

Vegetarian, vegan, plant-based, dairy-free and gluten-free.

  • Yield: 12 slices
  • Diet: Vegetarian

Description

This applesauce bread recipe is the best quick bread! It’s unbelievably tasty, cozy spiced and covered in an easy icing drizzle.


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup Old Fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 large eggs (for vegan, use flax eggs)
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup neutral oil (organic vegetable, canola or grapeseed)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 recipe Powdered Sugar Icing (optional; or use 1/2 recipe)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease an 8 or 9-inch loaf pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, allspice, and cloves. 
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, applesauce, oil, and vanilla extract. Add dry ingredients and stir until just combined and a smooth dough forms.
  4. Bake: Pour the batter into the loaf pan. Bake 55 to 65 minutes, until it feels solid and a toothpick comes out mostly clean with some clinging crumbs, or the internal temperature reaches 200 degrees Fahrenheit. The exact timing will depend on the size of the pan.
  5. Cool the bread in the pan for 15 minutes. Then run a knife around the edge and invert the loaf onto a cooling rack. Serve warm or at room temperature. Or if desired, allow to cool fully to room temperature (about 1 hour), then drizzle with Powdered Sugar Icing (if desired, use a half recipe for less sweetness). Storage info: The bread lasts 4 to 5 days at room temperature wrapped in aluminum foil, refrigerated for 10 days, or frozen for 3 months (slice it into pieces and wrap it in plastic wrap then a freezer-safe bag or container).

Applesauce pancakes recipe

Can I use applesauce as an oil substitute? Or an egg substitute?

Applesauce is often used as an oil substitute in quick breads, pancakes, and cookies. Why? It can replace the moisture without the fat, yielding lower calorie and super moist baked goods. It’s also often used as an egg substitute for vegan baked goods and pancakes.

This applesauce pancakes recipe we designed as a normal pancakes recipe that also includes applesauce to add moisture and flavor. But want to use it as a substitute? Here’s what to do:

  • Substitute 1 tablespoon applesauce for the 1 tablespoon oil. Keep in mind this affects the texture: the pancakes will be less smooth and a little more cakey.
  • Substitute 1/4 cup applesauce for the 1 egg, with these caveats. Again, this affects the texture: the pancake will be more delicate and fragile. Keep this in mind when flipping them! In all honesty, we prefer our Eggless Pancakes if you don’t want egg, or using a flax egg to act as a binder.
Applesauce pancakes

How to cook applesauce pancakes…perfectly!

Cooking pancakes sounds like an easy task: anyone can do that! But honestly: it’s a place where many home cooks mess up. Cook them at too high heat, and applesauce pancakes will burn on the outside and be gooey on the inside. Here are a few tips for cooking these pancakes to perfection:

  • Low and slow is key! Set the heat on low, or only as high as medium low. Cook them slowly, and they’ll come out perfectly cooked on the inside and golden brown on the outside. Don’t worry if it feels like it’s taking a long time: the extra minute or two is worth it!
  • When to flip? When bubbles form and pop. Wait until bubbles form on the surface and start to pop. Trust us: this trick works every time!

Holiday variation: snowman pancakes!

Here’s a cute holiday variation you can make with these applesauce pancakes: turn them into snowman pancakes! We made these with our son Larson and he loved decorating them. Here’s how to make them:

  • Make 3 small pancakes for the snowman’s body.
  • Place powdered sugar in a fine mesh strainer and gently tap it to make snow.
  • Use raisins or blueberries for eyes and buttons, a carrot for the nose, and apple slices or pretzels for arms.

Description

This applesauce pancakes recipe comes out moist and cozy-spiced! Using fruit puree makes for the perfect fluffy flapjacks.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar (or granulated sugar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 large egg (or flax egg for vegan)
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 2/3 cup milk of choice (2% or non-dairy milk)

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the all purpose flour, cinnamon, allspice (if using), baking powder, sugar, and kosher salt.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, oil, applesauce, and milk. Add it to the batter, then immediately add the milk. 
  3. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until a smooth, thick batter forms. 
  4. Lightly grease a skillet with butter and wipe off extra grease with a paper towel. Heat the skillet over low heat. Pour the batter into small circles (a little less than 1/4 cup each). Cook the pancakes until the bubbles pop on the top and the bottoms are golden: low and slow is the key! Then flip them and cook until golden on the other side. 
  5. If necessary, add a tiny splash of milk to the batter. Repeat with the remaining batter, adjusting the heat as necessary (the skillet can get very hot on the second batch). Place the cooked pancakes under an inverted bowl to keep them warm. Serve immediately with maple syrup.

Ingredients for applesauce cookies

These applesauce cookies are perfectly spiced to perfection, and so moist you won’t believe how soft and chewy they are. I always reach for a soft cookie over a crispy one (chewy ginger molasses cookies, any day). So this type of cookie is my ultimate. Here’s what you’ll need for the tastiest applesauce oatmeal cookies:

  • All purpose flour
  • Old Fashioned rolled oats (aka oatmeal!)
  • Light brown sugar & granulated sugar
  • Cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, cloves
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Applesauce
  • Neutral oil
  • Egg
  • Vanilla extract

When it comes to a neutral oil, you can use grapeseed oil, organic canola oil, or vegetable oil: any oil that has a neutral flavor. Avoid olive oil since it’s rather strong! You can also substitute melted butter for oil if you wish.

Applesauce oatmeal cookies

Add icing for best results!

The best part about these applesauce cookies? The powdered sugar icing! This icing takes them up a notch: both in overall presentation and in flavor! The sweet icing adds just the right additional sweetness to each bite. (Side bonus: it reminds us of an oatmeal cream pie.) Here’s what to know about this easy icing:

  • Mix powdered sugar with milk until smooth (quantities here). Easy as that! Make it dairy free with dairy free milk.
  • Drizzle with a fork, not a spoon! Yes, that’s right. We always reach for a spoon: but it’s the tines of a fork that make the best icing drizzle! Trust us.
  • Add color if desired. We made a cute holiday version by splitting the icing and adding food coloring to make half red and half green.

Tips for making applesauce cookies

Here are a few tips for the baking portion of applesauce cookies. It’s very easy and similar to most standard cookie recipes. Just a few things to note are:

  • The dough will be very sticky. It’s stickier than what you’d expect for say, a chocolate chip cookie dough.
  • Observe the chill time. After you mix up the dough, chill for 10 minutes. Don’t skip this part: it helps so the cookies don’t spread when baking.
  • Use 2 spoons or a cookie scoop to shape drops. Don’t adjust the cookies once they’re on the tray. The dough is sticky, so it’s a little harder to work with and form into a round drop (the cookie scoop is easiest). But never fear: once your cookies are on the try, they’ll bake up nicely.
Applesauce cookies

Vegan variation

Want a vegan variation on these applesauce oatmeal cookies? Luckily, they’re easy to make plant based! All you have to do is substitute the egg with a flax egg. A flax egg is ground flax seed that’s mixed with water. Let it sit and it forms a gel-like substance you can use as a binder in vegan baked goods. It might sound odd but use it once, and you’ll see how easy it is! It works well in quick breads, cookies and pancakes.

Why bake with applesauce?

Why bake with applesauce? Adding this fruit puree gives cake a rich, moist crumb to baked goods. Applesauce is a well-known substitute for butter and oil in baking recipes, an easy way to cut the overall calories. In these cookies it’s used for moisture and overall flavor (the oil is still necessary!). Even though it only uses 1/2 cup applesauce, you can taste it in every bite.

Applesauce cookies

Storage info

These applesauce cookies store well and stay very moist in a closed container. Here’s what to know about storage:

  • Store at room temperature in a cookie tin for up to 5 days. If the cookies are becoming too moist, you can unseal the top and let it loosely cover the tin.
  • Freeze un-iced cookies for up to 3 months.

  5. Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes until lightly browned. Allow to cool to room temperature before enjoying. If desired, make a criss-cross icing drizzle with a fork using our 1 Minute Powdered Sugar Icing. Store at room temperature in a cookie tin for up to 5 days, or freeze (un-iced) for up to 3 months.
