I’m no stranger to the game of sweet potatoes, but I feel like it’s easy to neglect white potatoes. While they may get a bad rap in the nutrition world, they are a very nutrient-dense, healthy carbohydrate choice.

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.
