It turns out beautiful! I think you’ll probably want to eat the bread the same day it’s made, but you should also know that it freezes well if you want to save it for later.

How to freeze bread:

Let the bread cool, and then wrap it in foil. Drop the foil-wrapped bread in a large freezer zip baggie and store in the freezer for 2 to 3 months.

It slices nicely. Tip: I like to slice it up fully and place each slice in a little zip baggie and keep them in the freezer. When someone wants a slice of bread, they can just grab a baggie and let it defrost on the counter. This helps with the problem of the whole loaf being devoured in a single day because everyone keeps slicing it and eating it!

Please note that this bread does not bake up super tall like some quick bread recipes you’ve probably tried. That doesn’t mean anything except that it’s something to be aware of. It’s a delicious bread. Every day is bread baking day, so get in the kitchen and bake this Applesauce Oatmeal Bread. Enjoy!

    This was a great recipe! I used 2 grated apples (1 golden and 1 Granny Smith) since I had no applesauce, and made muffins instead of a loaf. The good part was they only took 25 minutes to bake. I definitely would make this again!
