Cinnamon Applesauce Bread. Easy to make, tasty, and freezer friendly.

Cinnamon and apples get me every time. Whether it’s Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal or Cinnamon Apple French Toast, I find it hard to resist this classically delicious combo in the fall.Cinnamon Applesauce Bread. Easy to make, tasty, and freezer friendly.

Although this sweet bread is made with 100% whole wheat (thanks to the light texture of the white whole wheat variety), it is still light, moist, and incredibly flavorful. Serve a slice warmed up with a little butter or cream cheese on top for breakfast or a snack.


Whole Wheat Cinnamon Applesauce Bread

  • Author: Thriving Home
  • Yield: 1 loaf of bread 1x


  • 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/22 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil (or vegetable oil)
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla
  • 3/4 cup sugar (I use unrefined turbinado sugar)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil, applesauce, vanilla, and sugar.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry mix and stir until combined. Do not overmix.
  4. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle, about 40-50 minutes in a glass loaf pan and 30-40 minutes in a metal loaf pan.
  5. Let cool slightly before slicing. Serving suggestion: smear a warm slice with butter. For a sweeter treat, sprinkle with more sugar and cinnamon.


Freezer Meal Instructions:

To Freeze: Bake and let bread cool completely. Wrap tightly in a few layers of foil and place in a gallon-sized freezer bag. Squeeze out all the air, seal, and freeze.

To Prepare From Frozen: Let bread thaw on the counter or in the fridge. Or you can use the defrost setting on your microwave.
