This vegan applesauce bread is easy to make, without any yeast or kneading. It’s made with a whole grain flour and naturally sweetened. This makes a delicious bread to serve for breakfast or as a snack.


  • 2 cups light spelt flour (all-purpose flour is also ok)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups (350 gr) unsweetened applesauce or homemade applesauce
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened soy milk (almond milk or oat milk is also ok)
  • optional: 1 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F

Dry ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix to combine.

Wet ingredients

In the same mixing bowl, add applesauce, maple syrup and milk and mix until just combined. There is no need to overmix the batter.


Pour batter into the coox Wunderform bakeware loaf pan and place in the oven. Bake for about 45 minutes. The baking time really depends on your oven and on which tray you are baking the bread. I recommend baking the bread on the lower tray for 45 minutes. Have a look and see if your bread needs an additional 10 minutes. The bread is done when it’s golden brown on the outside and slightly moist on the inside.

Let cool (as long as you can) before slicing and serving.

The next day the flavor and texture of the bread is only better.



Any leftovers can be kept covered for up to 10 days in the fridge or 5 days at room temperature. You can also freeze the bread for up to 2 months.

Moist or crunchy outside

If you like a slightly crunchy outside, all you have to do is let the bread cool before serving. However, if you prefer the outside to be more moist, simply cover the bread with a clean and dry towel for about 2 hours (or longer) before serving.


If you don’t mind using oil, use about 1/3 cup of coconut oil. You will notice that the texture is less chewy if you add oil.
