Anything made with apples, caramel and cinnamon are the perfect fall dessert. That’s why I decided to come up with this recipe, but instead of making the traditional apple pies, cobblers or cakes, I decided to make an apple bread.
This Caramel Apple Pie Bread, is loaded with chunks of apples and crunchy walnuts, all wrapped in a delicious cinnamon-almond flour batter. Each slice is topped with buttery crumbs, coated with a divine homemade caramel and served warm. The texture is soft, moist and fluffy.
Your house will smell like warm apple pie when you bake this bread.
This Caramel Apple Pie Bread is a recipe you must make this holiday season and share with your guests.
It amazes me that people would choose to bake this kind of bread with refined, processed ingredients, while nutritious foods can be used instead without sacrificing taste or texture. You’ll find no wheat flours, grains, gluten or refined sugars in this recipe. This recipe is also dairy-free since so many people are sensitive to dairy.
Let’s all make this holiday season healthy and delicious!
