Chocolate Chip Apple Bread

Servings: 1 loaf

Applesauce is a healthier substitute for butter in most recipes. Usually you can change 1 cup butter (2 sticks) to 1 cup applesauce.



1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup organic (not from concentrate) apple juice
3/4 cup quality chocolate chips

Chocolate Chip Apple Bread recipe 


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, mix the flours with the sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the applesauce and blend with a rubber spatula until mixture is crumbly. Stir in the egg and then the apple juice slowly to smooth out the mix but not make it runny. Fold in the chocolate chips; pour into a 9x5-inch loaf pan coated with Teflon™ non-stick. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
