Low-Fat Apple Swirl Loaf

Sunday usually involves some sort of baking for me, to get some snacks ready for the beginning of the school week.  I feel like I've been making some of the same things over and over (baking rut!), and so wanted to do something different today.

I turned to my first book, The Everyday Vegan, and baked up this Apple Swirl Loaf.  It's really quite easy to make, but looks kinda' impressive with the streusel effect.  

Let's take a closer look at that cinnamon-apple swirl, shall we...

 
Pretty, huh?  The smell (and taste!) of the cinnamon/apple mixture is divine, I wish you could smell the aroma that I did when taking the photos!  This quick bread uses whole-grain flours and just one tablespoon of oil in the entire loaf, so it makes for a low-fat snack.

For those of you that don't have TEV, I will post this recipe in the next couple of days.  I'd do so today, but am up to my eyebrows with house chores.  You can wait a day or two, right? Wish you could smell it right now though...  :)

Looks wonderful! I have the everyday Vegan but have not tried this loaf yet. I also have apples galore in the house right now. You have the best recipes for healthy baked goods. Last week I made a batch of your easy pleasin' oat bars for the lunchboxes, big hit!
