Apple Spice Yogurt Bread


Adding sweet spices and apples to a basic bread transforms it into a treat for brunch or even dessert.


  • 4 cups flour: white flour, whole wheat pastry flour, or combination
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 6 large apples, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2-1/4 cups yogurt (plus additional if needed)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter, ghee, or coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped


  1. 12 hours prior to baking, combine the flour, oats, and yogurt. Cover the bowl and allow the flour to soak.
  2. When ready to bake bread, preheat the oven to 375°F.
  3. Add the other ingredients except the apples to the flour mixture, and stir to combine. Do not over-mix. (You may need to add some more yogurt to make it more like a batter than like a stiff dough.)
  4. Gently fold in the apples and nuts.
  5. Grease two 9×5-inch loaf pans. Pour the batter in the pans. Bake 1 hour or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean.
