Calories 231 kcal


  • 2 cups all purpose gluten-free flour (I use Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 all purpose)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted (or butter)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1- 1 1/2 cup apples, finely diced (about 2 medium apples) (Granny smith, fuji or gala)

Cinnamon Sugar Topping

  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

High Altitude Adjustment (for 6,000-8,000 ft): Omit the baking powder.


  1. To begin, preheat your oven to 350 and line a bread pan with parchment paper, with two sides sticking out for easy removal.

  2. In a small bowl, add your gluten-free flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and stir them together.

  3. In a large bowl, add your coconut oil, brown sugar and applesauce and whisk them together. Next add your milk, eggs and vanilla and whisk them into the wet ingredients.

  4. Pour your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients and stir them together till well combined, forming your bread batter.

  5. Add your apples to the bowl and gently fold them into your batter. Pour the batter into the bread pan.

  6. In a small, separate bowl, add your cinnamon sugar topping ingredients and stir them together. Sprinkle the topping evenly across the top of your bread batter.

  7. Bake the loaf in the oven for 65-75 minutes, or till the top of the loaf is springy to touch and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

  8. Let your loaf cool, remove it from your pan, then slice it up and devour it!
