Spiced Greek Yogurt Applesauce Bread

  • Author: Amanda @ Running with Spoons
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 12 hearty slices 1x


  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 apple, peeled and grated


  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF and lightly grease a 9 x 5 bread pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices, and salt. Stir until well combined and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs until slightly frothy. Add applesauce, brown sugar, Greek yogurt, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Stir until well combined.
  4. Gradually add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not overmix. Batter will be thick and lumpy – this is fine. Gently fold in grated apple.
  5. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-55 minutes, or until top is set and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  6. Remove from oven and allow bread to cool in the pan for 20 minutes before removing and setting on a wire rack to cool completely.
