Vegan Gluten-Free Apple Bread

This vegan gluten-free apple bread is a delicious, wholesome breakfast or snack bursting with apple flavor and hints of cinnamon. Made with simple ingredients, it’s moist, fluffy, and studded with fresh apples, satisfying your cravings and becoming a favorite in no time!

Unlike many other apple bread recipes, we blend a good amount of fresh apples into the batter, in addition to stirring in chunks. This creates a deliciously moist and apple-packed bread, even in every bite without chunks. Trust me, it’s absolutely amazing!

Ingredients you'll need


Prepare the topping by combining rolled oats, coconut sugar, cinnamon, and melted coconut oil in a small bowl. Set aside.


In a blender, combine the chopped apples, almond butter, coconut sugar, flaxseed meal, water, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and apple cider vinegar. Blend until smooth and creamy. Set aside.


In a large bowl, sift together oat flour, potato starch, baking powder, and baking soda. Then pour the liquid mixture from the blender into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir well until everything is thoroughly combined. Finally, fold the chopped apples into the batter.


Transfer the batter to the loaf pan, spreading it evenly. Sprinkle the prepared topping over the batter and gently press it down with a spoon. Bake for about 40 minutes or until the bread is firm and golden. The baking time may vary depending on your oven, so keep an eye on it. To check if it is done, insert a toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean, the bread is ready.

After removing the apple bread from the oven, let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes to allow it to set. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing and serving.
