Healthy Apple and Nut Bread


    • Baking spray with flour
    • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
    • ½ cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
    • 2 large eggs
    • ⅔ cup unsweetened applesauce
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, divided
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus 1 tablespoon, divided
    • ¾ cup whole-wheat flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • 1 large Granny Smith apple, diced (1/4-inch; about 1 cup)
    • ½ cup coarsely chopped walnuts
    • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
    • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon


Step 1: Firstly, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with baking spray.

Step 2: Stir granulated sugar, yogurt, and eggs together in a large bowl until well combined. Then add the applesauce, vanilla and 6 tablespoons melted butter; stir well to combine and set aside.

Step 3: Next, Whisk 1 cup of all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking soda, apple pie spice, and salt in a medium bowl.  Add the chopped apple and stir until the pieces are evenly coated. Add the flour-apple mixture to the egg mixture; stir until just combined. Then spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf pan.

Step 4: Combine walnuts, brown sugar, cinnamon, and the remaining 1 tablespoon of each melted butter and all-purpose flour in a small bowl. Sprinkle evenly on the batter in the pan.

Step 5: Bake until a wooden pick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Gently turn out onto a wire rack and let cool completely for about 1 hour.

Step 6: Lastly, enjoy your healthy apple nut bread with a warm cup of coffee or hot cocoa!
