When fall rolls around, we can’t help but throw on our aprons and grab our oven mitts for a season of plentiful baking. Quick bread loaves like this Greek yogurt apple bread recipe are warm, aromatic, and inviting, a.k.a. everything we love about fall.
This apple bread is incredibly moist and tender thanks to the Greek yogurt that’s used in the recipe. Not only is Greek yogurt a healthy alternative to sour cream, but it works just as well, if not better, at helping baked goods form a tender crumb.
While this is an apple recipe, you may be surprised to find out that you only need a single apple to make this bread. You can use any kind of apple that you want, but we prefer tart green apples for baking. The tartness is usually a nice compliment to the sweetness that you find in most baked goods.
For this apple bread recipe, you’ll also be using whole wheat flour in addition to regular all-purpose flour. The whole wheat flour adds some depth in flavor that regular flour cannot impart.
Other than the couple tablespoons of brown sugar that are used to coat the apples, the sweetness of the bread comes from the honey and applesauce that’s used, natural sweeteners that we find preferable over table sugar.
We recommend storing this apple bread in an airtight container after it’s cooled if you have any leftovers. You can also slice the loaf and store individual slices in ziplock bags in the fridge. Simply pop the slices into the microwave or a toaster oven to briefly reheat before enjoying for breakfast or dessert.
