Cinnamon apple walnut bread

When it comes to breakfast are you a sweet or salty person?
I have both sides,sometimes sweet and other times salty. When I'm craving salty foods I usually make a sandwich,with cheese or ham but when I have a sweet tooth must be something fluffy,moist or fruity. 
Something like a cinnamon buns,stuffed brioche or even this apple walnut bread. 
When I don't have much time to spend in the kitchen I prefer the last one.
It's quick and simple to prepare(it's made wih pantry staples👍),is loaded with shredded apples,cinnamon and topped with crunchy walnuts,very moist and not too sweet just perfect with a cup of coffee or tea.
This is a must have recipe for the breakfast.Plus,you can also use the same batter to make delightful muffins!!!
