Sometimes, the best things in life come about unexpectedly. Take this apple oat bread for instance! It all started with a frustrating tech day – no phone, no internet, no access to my usual recipe planning routine. Stuck at home, I needed an outlet for my pent-up energy.

Venturing into the kitchen, I initially had visions of a fluffy Easter dessert to share with the family. You see, I love finding ways to sneak healthy ingredients into delicious treats, keeping everyone happy and nourished.

With Easter just around the corner, and a grocery delivery on the horizon, I opted for a simple recipe using pantry staples. This surprise creation turned out to be a delightful hybrid: a touch more substantial than a cake, yet not quite as dense as a traditional bread.

Here we are, off to the races on another recipe inspired by fruit and oats.  

Apple Oat Bread Ingredients:

  1. 1 1/2 c rolled oats
  2. 1 c sweetened applesauce
  3. 4 apples sliced into 4 sections
  4. 1/2 c blueberries + 1/2 c blueberries, separated 
  5. 2 T rolled oats

Apple Oat Bread Instructions:

  1. Pulverize and Combine: This recipe is a breeze thanks to the power of a blender, or in my case, a Vitamix. Simply toss all ingredients except the last ½ cup of blueberries and 2 tablespoons of rolled oats into your blender (the Vitamix worked wonders here!).
  2. Blend it Up: Turn on your blender and let it work its magic. The goal is to transform the apples into a smooth applesauce and grind the oats into a flour-like consistency.
  3. From Batter to Bake: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Since I was initially aiming for a cake-like texture, I used a 9-inch pie pan for this recipe. However, a loaf pan would work just as well. Pour the blended mixture into your chosen pan.
  4. The Finishing Touches: Sprinkle the top of the batter with the remaining 2 tablespoons of rolled oats and the reserved ½ cup of blueberries. This adds a delightful textural contrast and pops of color to the finished bread.
  5. Baking Time: Pop your apple oat bread into the preheated oven and bake for 37 minutes.

This recipe is the epitome of simplicity, just the way I like it! The resulting bread/cake is delightfully moist, with a texture that falls somewhere between the two. I even think I could have gotten away with adding another ¼ cup of rolled oats for a slightly denser consistency. The real star of the show, though, is a pat of salted butter on top. It elevates the entire experience to a whole new level of deliciousness.

Overall, this apple oat bread is a winner. It's easy to make, tastes fantastic, and is packed with wholesome ingredients. And who knew a little tech frustration could spark such culinary inspiration?

Speaking of unexpected challenges, have you ever found yourself using the kitchen as an outlet for frustration? Maybe it's the rhythmic kneading of dough, the calming act of chopping vegetables, or the satisfaction of creating something delicious from scratch. Whatever it may be, I'd love to hear your stories!

On a completely different note, my home recently went through a seven-week renovation project. Let's just say construction dust became my unwelcome roommate, and it seems to have settled permanently into every nook and cranny. Even a week later, I'm still finding it clinging to the floors! The experience deserves its own post, and once I've wrapped my head around the chaos, I'll be sure to share the trials and tribulations (and hopefully some triumphs) of our home renovation adventure.  

  • Benefits of Oats: Oats are a great source of fiber, helping to keep you feeling full and satisfied. They are also a good source of complex carbohydrates, which provide sustained energy throughout the day.
  • Apple Power: Apples are another nutritional powerhouse. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Health benefits associated with apples: improved heart health, blood sugar regulation, gut health, brain health, and weight management. 
  • Blueberry Bonanza: Don't forget the blueberries! These tiny fruits pack a big punch when it comes to nutrition. They are loaded with antioxidants and have been linked to numerous health benefits, including improved brain function and reduced inflammation.

  1. I don't think I've ever had apple oat bread before, Cara, it looks delicious and what a fun way to turn a no tech day into a full on celebration. I definitely need to do more of that too. Hugs and thanks for the recipe, CoCo

    1. Like in my craft projects, I tend to experiment in the kitchen. Sometimes things do not necessarily go together by normal standards, but I just look at it as a science experiment to see what works. This recipe was out on a limb, and I had really hoped for a cake, but it ended up being more of a bread in the end.
