Mini Apple Bread Loafs

I had some apples that needed to be used but I didn't feeling like just eating them so I decided to make apple bread. I also have mini loaf pans so I decided to use them for once.

1 egg (Yum finally have local farm eggs again)
2 tablespoons safflower oil (Or vegetable)
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
2 apples peeled and chopped.
Optional: I added 1/2 teaspoon of lime juice and 2 tablespoons of honey
(inspired by when I make apple pie)

Preheat oven to 350° and grease/flour your pan
(I used silicone mini loaf pans so no pan prep was needed)

1. Beat the egg with the oil, apple juice and optional lime juice and honey. Set aside.
2. In a separate bowl mix the flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
3. Add the dry mixture to the wet and stir until just moistened.
4.  Fold in apples pieces and pour mixture into the prepared pan/pans.
If using one pan: Bake for 45 minutes. 
If using smaller pans: Bake for 25 then check for doneness.
If using muffin pans: Bake for 22 minutes then check for doneness.

I had some extra apples so I made a new batter. This time with chocolate. Add 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder to the dry ingredients. Fold in chocolate chunks (whatever amount you want) when you fold in the apples. It sounds odd but tastes awesome. Next time I might mix in some cranberries too.
