Adapted from one of my favorite blogs (Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life) with ingredients that I had on hand.

This bread was delicious and super moist – made the perfect breakfast, snack, or dessert. Top it with some peanut/almond butter and serve it with some fruit, milk or yogurt and you have a complete meal – whole grains, fruit, vegetable, protein, dairy. I will definitely be making this again and may substitute the apple sauce with pumpkin in the Fall! Enjoy!
