When I first started testing out clean eating, I wasn’t really sure where to start.  It can kind of feel daunting, in the beginning, when you don’t know how much unsweetened applesauce to use instead of oil or butter, what kind(s) of unrefined flours work best in breads, and so on.

Two of my first attempts at this new cleaner way of living were two different quick breads and everyone seemed to love them.  I made a Chocolate Zucchini Bread and a Pumpkin Raisin Bread.

The Chocolate Zucchini Bread is now one of the most trafficked recipes on the site and, for the Pumpkin Raisin Bread, I was actually asked to cook on the local fox news station.

That was definitely an interesting experience.

So, as any busy blogger can attest to, I went on to not make a single extra quick bread recipe for over a year.

Because why add more stuff that worked well, was easy and delicious, and everyone loves?

Sarcasm totally implied here.

Sigh.

So, we’re full circle back around again and it’s fall.  That means pumpkins and apples are in season, it’s time to bake delicious goodies in the oven to make your home smell so comforting, and – yep – that means breads.

While the earlier recipes still weren’t 100% clean since we were still transitioning to what that exactly meant for us, this apple pumpkin bread is completely clean and is so dang tasty.

A big bonus of this bread is that it’s kid friendly, too.

Jordan, my 9 year old, hates chunks of fruit in her food BUT she will eat every last crumb without even complaining.

Of course, this makes no sense to us — but the only explanation is that this bread is THAT good.

A couple notes on the recipe.  You can totally use canned pumpkin puree to make this apple pumpkin bread, but if you make your own homemade pumpkin puree, it’ll be that much better.  To learn how to make it (it’s totes easy), just click here.

Also, I don’t peel the apple before dicing it and adding it to the batter.  Believe it or not, the apple skin doesn’t even hold up when baked so you don’t even notice it — all that remains is the nutrients that you would’ve lost from peeling it to begin with.  Plus — if it doesn’t bother my 7 year old, I bet you won’t even notice 😉
