Enjoy this delicious vegan gluten free apple bread with your mid morning coffee or as an afternoon treat for the kids!
Vegan Gluten Free Apple Bread – The perfect morning snack
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 vegan 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.
Don’t you just love the Fall? The mornings are so cool and crisp the mornings. 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.
I hope you’ll give this vegan gluten free apple bread a try and if you do be sure to let me know how you liked it in the comment section.

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!
Great to hear Sarah! I always have a package in my pantry, it’s one of my favorite gf flours. I hope you’ll like the bread ?
Looks delicious, Krystal! Thank you so much for sharing it at Savoring Saturdays! 🙂
Thanks Raia. See you next week!

Thanks Emily. Same to you and see you next week for sure!
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.. 🙂
Thanks for the quick reply! I’m going to try rice flour. Can’t wait – thanks again! I’ll try to remember to let you know how it turns out. 🙂
Excellent! Thanks Sarah ?
Hi 😊. How can I replace the ½ teaspoon psyllium husk powder?
Hi, the psyllium helps bind the bread and improves the texture. You could try guar or xanthum gum or more flaxmeal.
Thanks 😊. Another question. Can I do muffins instead ? How long I the oven and what temperature?
Hi! You can definitely make these into muffins. I’d bake them at the same temperature but check for doneness at about 20 minutes.
