Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread


1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup applesauce
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 packets instant apple cinnamon oatmeal (single serving size)
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour*
1 apple, peeled and diced
oatmeal for garnish, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x5 loaf pan.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Mix in applesauce, cinnamon, and packets of oatmeal. Stir in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in the baking soda and flour. Fold in the apple. Pour batter into prepared pan and sprinkle with oatmeal, if desired.

Bake for 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.

*I tried 3/4 cup all purpose flour and 3/4 cup whole wheat flour and it turned out great, if you want to health it up a bit.
