We love this sweet quick bread recipe made with apple chunks and plenty of granola. The cinnamon and spices complement the apples well. If it is made with granola and fresh apples, you know it must be as wholesome as it is good.

This is an easy recipe to make. This moist, dense, apple-filled bread is best if refrigerated overnight to allow the flavors and moisture to penetrate the loaf.


1 1/4 cup flour
1 3/4 cups granola
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1 egg
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup canola oil

2 cups peeled and cored apples cut in 1/2-inch chunks


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare an 8 1/2 x 4 ½-inch loaf pan by greasing it well.

1. Combine the dry ingredients and the granola together in a large bowl.
2. Whisk the egg, brown sugar, buttermilk, and oil together until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is smooth.
3. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix with a spatula until just combined. Fold in the apples.
4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until the bread tests done. Remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack.

Note: Different granolas may absorb moisture differently. Add milk or flour if needed to get the right consistency.
