Apple Banana Streusel Bread

If you like this recipe, please share!

The delicious topping on my apple banana streusel bread takes this sweet treat over the top! Perfect for a snack or with coffee for breakfast.

applebananabread I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine.

My Mom was a great cook who left a large collection of recipes and I peruse them often. This apple banana streusel bread came from my Mom’s stash but it started out as apple streusel muffins.

I had one lone banana I needed to use, not enough for my regular banana bread recipe, so I thought I’d toss it in this recipe and make it into a loaf.

I’ve never shredded an apple for a recipe before. The Lady Alice apples from Ranier Fruit were nice and juicy and shredded up easily. I just used my cheese shredder on the large holes.

I’m convinced the bread was moist due to the juicy apple. They were delicious and I was sad when they were all gone. My husband and boys were sad when they were gone too.

The streusel topping adds a sweet crunch to the bread. You could enjoy this with your morning coffee or tea or as a dessert.

It would also make a great gift for neighbors during the holidays. I’ve made this bread a second time already because the first loaf didn’t last long in my house. I’m thinking next time I may make it into muffins.

Muffins would definitely be a great grab and go breakfast or snack.
