How To Make Homemade Apple Potato Bread

Making this potato apple bread is very easy. 

  • Preheat oven to 350 and grease 9×5 bread pan.
  • Mix egg, mashed potatoes, coconut oil, greek yogurt and maple syrup. Whisk.

Is Potato Apple Bread Healthy?

Because people have a skewed view of potatoes in general, they tend to think a potato bread recipe may not be the healthiest. 

Yet, this apple cinnamon quick bread recipe is very well-balanced. There is ample fiber and carbohydrates from the oats, potatoes and whole wheat flour, plus protein, calcium, and probiotics from the yogurt. 

Plus, provide several nutrients, like potassium, Vitamin C and B-Vitamins, which help produce energy you need to perform your best.

Tips for Making Cinnamon Apple Quick Bread

When making this cinnamon apple quick bread recipe, consider these tips.

  • Use Good Apples for Baking – The best apples for baking are firm tart and firm sweet apples. They produce a moist apple loaf, like in this recipe. I like gala, fuji or granny smith, but choose your favorites! I use similar apple varieties in these apple cinnamon overnight oats
  • To store this homemade apple potato bread, let it cool completely and store in an airtight container or ziplock bag for up to two days. You can also refrigerate it, and it will last up to 4-5 days.
  • This whole wheat potato bread with apples tastes great with cinnamon peanut butter slathered on. Butter or nutella would also be delicious!

Can You Freeze Whole Wheat Potato Bread?

This cinnamon apple bread recipe works great for freezing, so later you can thank yourself. 

Once it cools completely, place in a freezer-friendly bag or plastic wrap. I like to pre-slice it ahead of time and freeze in a few different bags for easy reheating.

To reheat, let thaw before serving, or heat up in the microwave or toaster. Slather with butter or peanut butter. Enjoy!

Store it for up to 3 months in the freezer. Reheat in the microwave, oven or toaster oven.

  1. Sarah, the apple potato bread seems ideal for running with carbs and potassium. Seeing the peanut butter on spread on top looks really tempting!

  2. I did not know they won in the potassium level contest!!! I crave carbs after a hard workout or run. My trainer helps more people with weight loss than anything else so she likes to harp at me about my night time carbs. Which I do tend to eat more than I should have.
    But I have changed her way of thinking when she started running. She had to up her calories and carbs to fuel. she was losing muscle trying to compensate!

  3. This looks delicious, I love the big chunks of apple! Can’t remember the last time I had a potato bread but this sounds perfect for St. Patrick’s Day next month. Happy Meatless Monday!

  4. THIS looks AMAZING and so perfect for pre or post workout. I love how you power packed it with all the wonderfulness of the white potato. It sounds so delicious. Pinning on ‘Recipes to Try Soon.’

  5. I forget about regular potatoes myself lol. I always just go to sweet potatoes! This bread topped with nut butter sounds amazing.

  6. Looks so good! Especially with peanut butter slathered on 🙂 I’m going to have to make this for my potato loving husband!

  7. Hmm I love the cinnamon apple bread-but I am a weirdo who has never liked regular potatoes. I wonder if it could be replaced with sweet potato or butternut squash?

    1. You don’t really taste the potatoes at all! But if you want to, you could certainly use sweet potatoes but it may change the flavor a little bit since they are a little stronger.

  8. Whoooooaaaa. Now this is new. Maybe I’ve been craving so many white potatoes lately because my body knows its needing sustained energy for my show – huh. Didn’t know that about potassium, either.
    Did you mash the whole potato or did you leave some chunks whole?

    1. YES, that makes total sense! Your show requires so much energy. The potassium fact is pretty cool, isn’t it? Not that I could ever leave my beloved bananas, but potatoes are superstars too! I mashed the potatoes completely, but chunks may be a good addition if you like that texture.
