Chunky Applesauce Bread

Next to pumpkin, apples are one of my favorite things about fall. I love apple bread, and was excited to find a healthier recipe on Skinnytaste. This bread is loaded with apple chunks, and homemade applesauce makes it so moist. My loaf didn't rise as much as it should have. I have no idea why, but I seem to be having that problem with my baked goods lately. Any ideas?
This bread is delicious both warm and cold. Enjoy!

3/4 cup brown sugar, not packed
1 tsp. baking soda
