Grain-Free Gingerbread Walnut Loaf that everyone is talking about! This heavenly loaf is made with fresh ginger, fresh apples, walnuts and pumpkin pie spices. This is not one of those super sweet loaves. The gingerbread walnut loaf is sweetened with apples, maple syrup and a splash of molasses.

The spices are a mix of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg similar to the ones used in a pumpkin pie or gingerbread. Also, there are only two flours used almond and arrowroot, both of which are grain-free.

The almond flour combined with arrowroot flour gives this loaf a super light texture, pillowy soft yummy! The key ingredient…walnuts. Adding walnuts to this recipe sets this loaf apart from most. Nutty flavour, not too sweet, soft texture and a bit of crunch –> Yes, perfection!
