Apple Cinnamon Bread


1/4 cup, chopped Pecans
2 Tbsp. Maple syrup
1/4 tsp. Ground cinnamon
1 large Egg yolk(s)
1 Tbsp. Unsalted butter
2/3 cup Z-Sweet / Stevia
1/2 cup Applesauce (unsweetened)
1/2 tsp. Vanilla extract
3 large Egg white(s)
1 1/4 cup Enriched all purpose white flour
3/4 cup Whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. Baking soda
1 tsp. Ground cinnamon
1/4 cup Wheat germ
2 cup, sliced Apples (peeled and grated)
1/2 cup Reduced fat buttermilk


Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 1 1/2 quart glass Pyrex oblong loaf pan with foil (non-stick foil works best).

Combine the pecans, maple syrup and cinnamon in a small bowl. Stir until well blended. Set aside.

Whisk the egg yolk until smooth. Add the canola oil and whisk together until smooth. Add the Z-Sweet, applesauce and vanilla extract and whisk until smooth.

In separate bowl whisk the egg whites until they begin to be very frothy and white. Do not beat into stiff peaks.

Place the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and wheat germ in a sifter and sift into the mixing bowl.

Gently fold the creamed mixture together with the flour mixture. As this is blended add the grated apples.

Just as the apples are blended in add buttermilk and fold until smooth. As soon as the mixture is well blended add the frothed egg whites and fold together until smooth.

Pour the batter into the lined Pyrex dish. Spread the pecan and maple syrup mixture evenly over the top and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 60 minutes.

Recipe Notes

Making bread is a little more time consuming than a simple muffin recipe, but this Apple Cinnamon quick bread is a great comfort food. Warm and inviting, with a spicy cinnamon aroma, just having this one in the oven makes the house more homey. The loaf will keep well for about 3 – 4 days and it’s best to cut two thin slices and toast them lightly in the oven or toaster oven.
