Apple Cinnamon Bread is a delicious and comforting treat that combines the flavors of apples and cinnamon in a soft and moist bread. While it is typically enjoyed as a sweet treat, it also offers some health and nutritional benefits, especially when made with wholesome ingredients. Here are some potential benefits of Apple Cinnamon Bread:


1. Dietary Fiber: Apples are a great source of dietary fiber, and when incorporated into the bread, they contribute to its overall fiber content. Dietary fiber promotes healthy digestion, helps regulate blood sugar levels, and supports heart health.


2. Vitamins and Minerals: Apples are rich in essential vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C and potassium. These nutrients contribute to a strong immune system, healthy skin, and proper heart function.


3. Antioxidants: Both apples and cinnamon contain antioxidants that help combat oxidative stress and reduce inflammation in the body. Antioxidants play a crucial role in protecting cells from damage and may have anti-aging effects.


4. Reduced Added Sugar: When making Apple Cinnamon Bread at home, you have control over the ingredients, including the amount of sugar used. Opting for natural sweeteners like honey or maple syrup instead of refined sugar can reduce the overall sugar content of the bread.


5. Whole Grains: By using whole grain flour or incorporating rolled oats into the recipe, you can increase the fiber and nutrient content of the bread. Whole grains offer benefits such as improved digestion, increased satiety, and a lower risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.


While Apple Cinnamon Bread can provide some health benefits, it’s important to note that it should be enjoyed in moderation as part of a balanced diet. Also, individual variations in recipes and ingredients can affect the specific nutritional profile of the bread. If you have any specific dietary concerns or restrictions, it’s always a good idea to consult a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian.

I’m excited about this bread for a few reasons. First, I didn’t think I liked anything with baked apple (it’s a texture thing), but I’m trying to be an adult and try new things.


Last week we were at a cider mill and my mom bought a loaf of their apple bread. I tried it and actually liked it. Enough that I wanted to try to recreate it which leads to the second reason why I’m excited about it. I think I did a pretty good job recreating it! I did some research and came up with this recipe that I think is really, really good.




1/3 cup brown sugar (not packed)


1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


2/3 cup white sugar


1/2 cup butter, softened


2 eggs


1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder


1/2 cup milk


1 apple, peeled and chopped




Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and set aside.


Beat white sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until incorporated; add vanilla extract.


Combine flour and baking powder together in another bowl; stir into creamed butter mixture.


Mix milk into batter until smooth. Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Next add half the apples and half the brown sugar cinnamon mixture. Lightly pat apple mixture into batter.


Pour the remaining batter over apple layer; top with remaining apples and add more brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using a finger or spoon.


Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes.
