It’s 5:30 on a busy weekday night, the grocery bags are sitting on the kitchen floor and the boys are destroying the playroom creating forts, and boats, and mini restaurants, so let’s keep this short and sweet. I cannot bake, but for some reason I make a mean sweet bread.

This is lighter and a bit healthier than your average sweet bread and full of apple cinnamon for the season.




Here’s What You Need:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup of organic sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsps cinnamon + 1 extra tsp
10oz of apple yogurt (like Chobani*) or 2 large ripe bananas
2/3 cup of organic cinnamon applesauce (Preferably a chunky variety)
+ ¼ cup extra for topping
2 eggs
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
1 tsp of vanilla

*This is abou 1.5 small containers. Be sure to really stir well!

Here’s What You Do:
Preheat the oven to 350. Mix the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, sugar and salt together. Whisk the eggs, vanilla, oil, yogurt or smashed bananas, and applesauce together until smooth. If you like add 1 more tsp of cinnamon. Stir in the dry ingredients. Pour into a 9×5 pan coated with cooking spray. I topped the bread with ¼ cup of applesauce and then “swirled” it around. Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes or until your fork comes out dry. (Check every 15 minutes starting at 45 minutes) Let the bread cool and then shake onto a plate. (It may be helpful to loosen the sides first)

Kid Tip:
My boys adored this and I hope your kids do too! To reheat it in the morning, pop it in the microwave for 15 seconds and top with a smidge of Best Life Spread. Yum :)
