Cinnamon Apple Bread – Healthyish Foods

This cinnamon apple bread recipe is a riff on my banana bread and pumpkin bread recipes. If you haven’t tried the pumpkin or banana bread yet, you’re going to want to add these recipes to your fall baking list. All three of the recipes are made from simple, clean ingredients that you can feel good eating.

For a Healthyish twist, you can use coconut sugar instead of cane sugar, but both will work fine. I used coconut sugar in this recipe and it was delicious.
