Delicious!! I made a few changes. I also greased the pan and dusted it with cinnamon instead of flour. Instead of using chunky applesauce I put in 1 Granny Smith apple (peeled and chopped) and 1/2 cup of cinnamon flavored applesauce. I added 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/4 teas. clove and put 1 1/2 packets of the oatmeal in the mix. Finally I mixed 1/8 cup packed brown sugar with 1 teas. melted butter 1 teas. flour and the remaining half a packet of oatmeal and sprinkled this on top. SO YUMMY!!!

I made this recipe today but with a few adjustments. Whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour. 1 cup no-sugar-added applesauce PLUS 1 cup chopped fresh apple. I added 1.5 packets of oatmeal to the mix and reserved 0.5 for the topping. Also I only cooked the bread about 45 minutes not 60.

Thank you Monique for sharing this wonderful recipe! The only changes I made were to add one apple peeled and chopped. I also put 1 1/2 packets of oatmeal in the recipe and sprinkled 1/2 packet on top. I won FIRST PLACE at our county fair with this recipe!

This was very good. I added raisins and they were a nice complement. Definitely make a streusel topping with 1/2 packet oatmeal brown sugar cinnamon and butter. That's the best part!

This recipe is so easy. It makes a great breakfast and is not too sweet. Highly recommended.

Easy to make and very good with a nice apple taste. As other reviewers have said not much of the oatmeal packet sprinkled on tip actually sticks to the bread. I patted the topping into the batter but still much of it fell off. I don't think it had much effect on the taste however. Mine didn't require a full hour of baking and even at about 50 minutes the apple pieces on the top were beginning to brown too much.

These make very good muffins! (baked at 400 for 15-17 mins) I made a few changes; didn't have apple cinnamon oatmeal so I used quick oats and 2 tsp apple juice concentrate added a shredded apple and used 1 cup white whole wheat & 1/2 cup white. Next time I will add more cinnamon. Just had one warm from the oven. Yum!
