apple pie — the healthier version

Mouth-watering desserts are exceptional and are loved by all. Usually, we make cakes for birthdays, festivals, and other occasions. But you can’t always indulge in rich desserts, or you may choose not to. So, I created this fabulous recipe for insanely delicious apple pie bread.

This gluten-free apple pie bread is a real treat. It is moist and the apples are a definite highlight. The spices give it an apple pie quality, so much so that it tastes like you’re eating an apple pie.

It may seem like I say this with a bit of bias because, for me, anything with apples and cinnamon tastes amazing!

Beyond my love for apples, I love this gluten-free apple pie bread. And I promise this gluten-free sweet bread will not disappoint. This sweet apple pie bread recipe is a healthier twist on the classic apple pie.

Not only it is gluten-free, but also an excellent fit for anyone following a plant-based diet. It comes together in no time with simple ingredients, and the result is, moist, flavorful loaf bursting with apples and warming spices.
