  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Mix flax eggs and let sit.

  3. Place 1 ½ c of oats into a blender and blend until it creates a flour, about 15 seconds.

  4. Add dry ingredients to a bowl, mix and add apple to coat with flour.

  5. Mix wet ingredients, zest, and add to dry ingredients.

  6. Line loaf pan with parchment/use a non-stick pan and pour batter into pans.

  7. (This recipe made on medium sized loaf, plus a small one (or 3 ½ c of batter). You could also use one large loaf pan (9 x 5) in place of the 2.

  8. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45-60 minutes or until tester comes out clean. I used our convection oven at 325 for 45 minutes.

  9. Allow bread to rest 10 minutes in pan, and then turn out to cool on a rack.


  1. Best served warm-and easily reheated the next morning.

  2. Freezes well.
