Apple Cinnamon Loaf

Lately, I am all about apple cinnamon or pumpkin spice. I guess you can really tell how much I love autumn and all the autumnal flavors! I love baking quick breads. Banana bread is a household favorite over here, and during this time of year I love making pumpkin bread too. But how could I leave out the delicious combination of apple and cinnamon? I couldn’t!

This is a great brunch or breakfast addition, because it’s not as sweet as a dessert. It’s thick and fluffy and perfectly spiced. This recipe does contain eggs, but you can always swap them out for flax or chia eggs. Or aquafaba (bring water from chickpeas).

I know you are going to love this recipe, and I hope you make it for a weekend brunch! Be sure to tag me on instagram @naturallychelsbates and use #naturallychelsrecipe so I can see! I love seeing what you guys are making and loving. Your support means the world to me!
