Fall is here, which means it’s pumpkin spice and apple everything season! While I love a good pumpkin pie or pumpkin spice latte, I’m really here for the apple desserts. That’s why I was so excited to find this apple pie bread recipe!

It has everything I love about the original dessert, including brown sugar, cinnamon, lots of butter, and chopped Granny Smith apples. This decadent dessert bread is made dense and almost creamy by using Greek yogurt in the batter. Top it all off with more cinnamon, brown sugar, and chopped walnuts, and you have one incredible loaf of bread!

To get started on this fall treat, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with baking spray. In a large bowl, combine granulated sugar, 1/3 cup brown sugar, yogurt, and eggs. Then, add applesauce, vanilla, and 6 tablespoons melted butter. Stir well to combine and set aside.

Whisk 1 cup all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking soda, apple pie spice and salt in a medium bowl. Toss in apple chunks and stir until pieces are evenly coated. Pour flour/apple mixture into the egg mixture, stirring until just combined. Spread batter into prepared loaf pan. Combine walnuts, remaining 3 tablespoons brown sugar, cinnamon and remaining 1 tablespoon of melted butter and all-purpose flour in a small bowl. Sprinkle evenly on the batter in the pan.

Bake until a wooden pick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Gently turn out onto a wire rack; let cool completely, about 1 hour. I know, I know, it’s hard to wait that long, but trust me, it’s worth it! Get the full ingredient list and instructions below!
