Apple bread – tasty and healthy

Apple bread for breakfast or with it as a snack at school. It is something else than an apple and children will love it. Here is the recipe for apple bread, full of apples and raisins.

Taking snacks to school

Now that the school year has started again, many parents are looking for a tasty and responsible breakfast or snack for their children. Taking an apple to school is of course always a good idea. But putting this fruit in a bread makes it even more nutritious and tasty.

Baking with Marlene® Royal Gala

South Tyrol has the largest apple growing area in Europe. Due to the geographical location on the southern side of the Alps combined with the Mediterranean climate, Marlene® apples have a unique taste. Harvest traditionally starts there at the end of August.

The first apple of the season to be harvested is the Royal Gala Marlene®. The new harvest of these sweet apples is now in abundance.

Where to buy this apple

Tasty as a snack or breakfast

Following this recipe and getting Marlene® apples, I made this apple bread recipe myself. It is an easy recipe. something I always like. The bread was a success. After the first loaf, I was asked if I would please make another loaf. Now of course there is sugar in this apple bread, so it is not a substitute for the apple that normally comes along as a snack at school..

But this week they took a piece of apple bread to school two mornings instead of fruit. The recipe comes highly recommended.
