Apple Pantry Bread

I must be in spring cleaning kinda of mood lately.

Apple Pantry Bread-9I mean last week I was all…” here is a pizza with everything from my fridge on it.”  And this week I’m making you a bread with everything from my pantry in it.

Apple Pantry Bread-2The real inspiration for this bread is my attempt at being a little more healthy. It just got a little out of control when I went looking for the coconut, and I was all “ I can add this, and I can add that”

Apple Pantry Bread-4In the end it turned out quit nice. I loved it so much, I didn’t even share it.

Apple Pantry Bread-5No I didn’t eat it all in one day… thought about it… Then it occurred to me that, that would defeat the purpose of it being healthy.

Apple Pantry Bread-7So I cut it up and froze it. So every time I wanted a slice (which was every night until it was gone) I would pull out a slice, heat it for 45 secs in the microwave and sprinkle a little powdered sugar and top with fresh blueberries. Perfect!

Apple Pantry Bread-10Go ahead and clean out your pantry and shove everything into this bread.

  1. Tracy, I love this. I love the great idea of slicing it up and throwing it in the freezer… Just today I was thinking about finding something to take to work that I could just pull out of the freezer and eat for lunch… this would be perfect for that!
    It looks absolutely delicious with all of those wonderful ingredients..apples, coconut, walnuts, carrots!! It just doesn’t get any better. I’m making this for sure. 🙂

  2. Spring cleaning at it’s best. And you seriously ate it all yourself? I can see why. It’s lovely and beautiful. Your photographs are stunning. Such a nice recipe. I’ll have to try it!

  3. haha I definitely do that sometimes .. go to grab one ingredient and suddenly I’m adding a bunch of things! This bread looks awesome – so moist and packed with plenty of add-ins! Just the way I like it : )
