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!!! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

This bread was AMAZING! It has just the right amount of sweetness, and is moist. I also added a chopped apple and a box of raisins, and it was great. Good idea for a quick breakfast with coffee or even a late night snack. ***UPDATE**! ok I made this again, this time i used 1/2 cup of old fashion oats instead of instant oatmeal .Then dusted the pan with sugar and cinnamon, and added melted butter, sugar and cinnamon To the top and it was GREAT!
