My daughter has to take a snack to school everyday for elevenses (almuerzo) Even though she eats very well at home it’s often difficult to convince her to take carrot sticks when all of her peers are pulling out sugar laden donuts and cookies from their backpacks. As such I am always trying to come up with healthy kid friendly ‘cool’ snacks. Enter this gluten free apple bread. I think everyone should have a good healthy snack bread or cake recipe in their arsenal. An everyday quick bread that you can serve your kids after school, or eat as a mid-morning snack with your coffee.

Fall is most definitely here and I just love how cool and crisp the mornings are. I’m definitely enjoying my jogs through the orange groves near our home much more now. It also means that I can crank up my oven again. During the hot summer months I have absolutely no desire to bake but once the temperature drops a bit I metamorphosize into some kind of baking monster.

Gluten Free Apple Bread- A Fall Favourite

There’s nothing that screams fall more than apples and pumpkin. My family devoured this gluten free apple bread in a couple of days. With its success I can see all sorts of seasonal varieties on the horizon.

    This looks so delicious! I was wondering if I may use another flour in place of the chestnut flour? We don’t have it around here and it’s pretty expensive online. I guess I could use more almond flour but it would probably yield a heavier bread? Can’t wait to try this for my kids! We’re trying to cut down on our refined sugar in desserts and snacks. 🙂

      Hi Sarah, I wouldn’t use more almond flour as it can be a bit finicky in baked goods sans eggs. Try more oat flour or alternatively buckwheat or brown rice flour should also work. Please let me know how it turns out for you.. 🙂

    Ooh this is perfect! I actually have a bag of chestnut flour in my cupboard. I found it in a health shop a few weeks ago and was so excited to see it because I kept stumbling across recipes that used it, but once I got home I wasn’t sure what to make. Can’t wait to try it!
