Moist and loaded with fall flavor




  • 200 grams 1:1 gluten-free flour blend
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 250 grams unsweetened apple sauce
  • 175 grams sugar*
  • 1 large egg (50-56 grams)
  • 65 grams avocado or canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 120 grams apples, peeled and cut ¼-inch cubes
  • Cinnamon sugar for topping



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.

  3. Put the apple sauce and sugar in another large bowl. Add the egg, mixing well to incorporate. Stir in the oil and vanilla, mixing well.

  4. Stir in the flour mixture until just combined.

  5. Set batter aside to rest for 30 minutes.

  6. Fold in the chopped apples.

  7. Spray an 8x4-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray, and pour in your batter. Decorate with thin-sliced apples (if desired), and sprinkle the top with cinnamon sugar.

  8. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour, or until a toothpick or cake tester comes out clean. I usually check and rotate the pans after the first 30 minutes.

Recipe Notes

*If you want to lower the amount of refined sugar in this recipe, replace the sugar with raw coconut sugar or maple sugar. The bread will have a slightly richer, molasses-like hint to it.
