Apple Pie Swirl Multigrain Bread Loaf

Fall is in the air, and that means lots of squashes, apples, fall spices, pies..
I am not a fan of sweet fruit pies. So I decided to add the pie filling in a yeast bread. The filling in a bread does not need as much sugar. The bread is mildly sweet and makes an amazing snack as is, or a delicious french toast or plain toast with some maple , earth balance butter, nut butter, or topped with some cashew cream and more apples and pie spice!

This is a yeast bread, so it has limited sugar and fat content. It is like a mild flavored, light and airy, no guilt apple pie. I has some whole barley that I let my blendtec convert into flour and here we are with a multigrain(ok 2 grain- wheat and barley) bread. Find lots of my yeast breads here.
