This is my Pumpkin Apple Bread Recipe on video. It’s Another excellent way to use up your fresh apples.
Bread will always be a carby treat. But we can do something about the sweetener and make the fat and other add ins healthy. I sweetened this recipe with Pure Organic Maple Syrup.
Maple syrup is a bit lower on the glycemic scale than white sugar. This bread is still heavenly and sweet but now you’re taste buds can also pick up the other very interesting flavors it has to offer.
Yummy, healthy fresh ginger is one of those flavors. Fresh ginger is a lovely flavor enhancement in apple recipes. I put it my Fresh Apple Spice muffins and we enjoyed them so much I knew fresh ginger is going into this bread too! Add in the cinnamon along with the vanilla and almond flavorings for an apple pie flavor you will love!
Cinnamon Spice Apple Bread Recipe:
I made this recipe the easy way with my handy dandy Cuisinart food processor. If you prefer a chunkier texture, hand chopping is the way to go. For me easy apple desserts mean no chopping. I much prefer the food processor for this.
Also, I LOVE baking with coconut oil for great flavor and healthy fats. If you prefer, or don’t care for coconut oil try avocado oil. Avocado oil is another healthy oil and the flavor is not too strong for baking.
