Craving bread, but not the gluten? Try this fragrant, high-protein apple and walnut loaf. It’s gluten-free and delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups ground almonds
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp aluminum free baking powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened organic apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup walnut oil (or use coconut oil)
  • Coconut oil for greasing the loaf pan
  • 1/4 cup of coconut milk

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325F. Coat a 9×5 loaf pan liberally with coconut oil.

Combine 2 cups ground almonds, 1 cup chopped walnuts, 2 tbsp ground flaxseed, 1 tbsp cinnamon, 2 tsp aluminum free baking powder and ½ tsp salt in a bowl and mix.

In another bowl, combine 2 eggs, 1 cup unsweetened organic apple sauce, 1/2 cup walnut oil (or use coconut oil) and 1/4 cup of coconut milk. Pour the mixture into the dry ingredients and stir. If the mixture is very stiff, add 1 to 2 tbsp more of coconut milk.

Press the dough into the pan and bake for about 45 minutes. Check the loaf  by poking it with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean, the Apple Walnut bread is done.

Leave to cool for 20 minutes, then turn out. Slice and serve.

Enjoy!
