I did it.

I finally did it.

I finally made a fruit bread that turned out great!

No half-filled pan of banana bread, no gooey middle, no throwing half of the loaf away a few days later because neither one of us will eat it.

Thanks, fall.

The inspiration is all you.

Apples. Walnuts. Cinnamon. Maple syrup.

All in one bread – warm and toasty and full of flavor.

Don’t get me wrong – I love a good banana bread. But I think I love apple bread even more.

If you try this recipe, you may find yourself agreeing.

As long as I have fresh apples this fall and winter, this bread will be on the menu.

It’s delicious as a snack, perfect for breakfast, and would probably make incredible french toast…if you could save a few pieces.

Even better? It’s all whole wheat with some heart healthy oatmeal thrown in, just for fun.
