Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Bread - refined sugar-free, moist, fluffy, delicious!

 

Once you get to a certain age, it’s the simple things in life that make all the difference.

Like your car insurance premium going down.

A stellar health, vision, dental plan + super awesome dividends, like whaaaaa?!

The perfect cup (or 5) of coffee.

Cross word puzzles in an actual newspaper. On a Sunday morning. With a legit cup (or 5) of coffee.

Those super fuzzy and warm socks that leave a trail of fuzzies everywhere you go, but you don’t care because they make your feet feel like they’re constantly being kissed by fairies.

The fact that your Florence + The Machine Pandora radio station knows you. Right in the frontal lobe, it knows you.

Apple Cinnamon Bread (gluten-free, refined sugar-free) - moist and fluffy cinnamony apple bread!

This gluten-free apple cinnamon bread is that warm surprise that makes you take a deep breath and sigh, “Life is good.”

It includes a secret ingredient – Greek yogurt! – which helps leaven the bread and also gives it a moist buttery tang. 

Trust me, you will just want to hide pieces of it in the pockets of your enormous fall scarf and pull them out just whenever you feel the need.

Let’s make a loaf of this Life is Good bread, shall we?

How to Make Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Bread:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan (or line a loaf pan with parchment paper).

In a small mixing bowl, add the ingredients for the apple cinnamon mixture, stir well, and set aside.

In a stand mixer or a mixing bowl, cream together the butter, coconut sugar, and vanilla extract (wet mixture).

Add the eggs one at a time and continue mixing until well combined.

In a separate mixing bowl, stir together the gluten-free flour, baking powder, and salt,

Pour the flour mixture into the bowl with the wet mixture and mix just until combined. Add the Greek yogurt and mix until smooth and well combined. The mixture will be very thick and doughy – this is normal!

Spread half of the bread dough in the prepared loaf pan. Add 2/3 of the apple cinnamon mixture and press it into the dough with a spoon. Spread the remaining bread dough on top, followed by the remaining apple cinnamon mixture. Again, gently press the apples into to bread dough and make sure all of the batter/apples are evenly distributed in the loaf pan.

Bake for 50 minutes in the preheated oven.

Remove bread from the oven and allow it to cool for at least 20 minutes before running a knife along the edges, and turning it out onto a cutting board.

Cut thick pieces of bread and serve with butter and honey.

What Type of Flour To Use:

This apple cinnamon bread is made with Bob’s Red Mill’s Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour, which makes for a fluffy loaf that you’d never in a million years guess was gluten free. I’ve been raving about this blend because makes life so much easier.

Just as the package says, it works perfectly as a 1:1 replacement for regular all-purpose flour. With the holidays coming up, the blend is perfect for using in your cookies, cakes, breads, pie crusts, etc. etc. Acquire it in epic proportions, my loves. Acquire.

What Type of Sweetener to Use:

I sweetened the bread using coconut sugar , which is lower on the glycemic index than cane sugar.

If you prefer baking with cane sugar, you can replace the coconut sugar with brown sugar or granulated cane sugar – either work! If you’d like to keep it added sugar-free (the apple has natural sugar), use your favorite sugar-free sweetener!

This is the perfect brunching and holiday quick bread. If you’re really wanting to get genius, you could add pecans or walnuts and drizzle the thing with a glaze or homemade caramel. Just throw your sails to the wind. Grab life by the Moist Breads.

Delicious! I used my own gluten free flour mix rather than Bob's as Bob's mix has potato starch in it, which due to my allergies, I cannot have. It worked well! I also upped the soda a bit and added 1/4 t. ascorbic acid powder as I cannot have baking powder. That worked well too. Fortunately, none of these adjustments changed the flavor! Will definitely make again! Thank you for sharing your recipe!

This bread was very moist and delicious while warm. Next day it was quite dry and I ended up throwing it out.

Hi Patty. I always reheat the bread with a small amount of butter, and it stays nice and moist and delicious.
