Apple Streusel Bread

Very shortly here, Christmas will be in full swing, and apples will fall out of the limelight. But, before that happens, we wanted to highlight our Apple Streusel Bread which we made for our Halloween Bake It Forward. It is too yummy, and relatively easy to make, to neglect.

An Apple a Day??

To recap some of the wonderful benefits of apples, an apple a day CAN help keep the doctor AND the dentist away. Some research shows that eating an apple a day makes one less likely to need a prescription medication. For sure, even organic apples are cheaper than most if not all prescriptions! And there is also a little research showing that an apple a day MAY keep the dentist away.

While the research is limited for actually needing less medical or dental care if you eat apples regularly, there is no doubt that they are a healthy fruit, full of fiber, vitamin C, pectin, and other great antioxidants. And believe it or not, there over 200 varieties of apples! The Environmental Working Group recommends buying organic apples because of the amount of pesticide residue left on conventional ones is excessive. When they are in season, organic apples aren’t that much more, so worth the splurge.

There is no question that apples are tasty and much better for you than processed sugary treats. While this bread does add some sugar and fat to your diet, it is a healthier way to add some yummy fall appleness to your day!
