buttermilk & apple bread

In the oven now, smelling amazing. From Coconut & Lime.

1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups flour (I did more like half and half with the flour and added 2T ground flaxseed, which had better not make it gross or I will be annoyed with all this healthy living crap; Kelly, I'm looking at you.)
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
3/4 cup cubed apple (she recommends Cripps? I've never heard of them and used some old sad apple from the fridge)
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (I added more)
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon allspice (I substituted cloves and more cinnamon)
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour one standard loaf pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, brown sugar, salt, allspice, cinnamon, ginger and baking soda. Then mix in the egg, buttermilk, and oil. Stir until a thick batter forms. Fold in the apple. Pour into the prepared pan and bake about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean.

Well? How was it? Is this "healthy eating crap," as you, say tasty or not?
