This quick bread is a total happy accident. I bought a jar of applesauce that was much larger than I needed when I made my Applesauce Sheet Cake last week. I wanted to come up with a way to use the remaining applesauce. I was considering applesauce cookies, but then I remembered a really great oatmeal quick bread that I bought at a bake sale a couple of years ago.

I love a good quick bread, but they’re not as easy to come by as you might think. What I love most about this Applesauce Oatmeal Quick Bread recipe is the moist and robust texture thanks to… well.. the applesauce and oatmeal!

You can spice this bread however you like. I often use the spice listings in a recipe as a general guideline. I like spiced baked goods to have a lot of kick. If you’re missing one of the spices or you prefer a different profile, feel free to use whatever you like. You could even swap in a spice blend like pumpkin pie spice mix.
