This is a healthy alternative, guilt-free, gluten-free, super moist, and delicious bread!
1 cup organic raw cane sugar
2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup gluten free flour
1 cup extra virgin coconut oil (melted)
*1 banana (mashed)
*3 cups apples (remove peels and cut into small squares)
*1 cup pecans (chopped)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
*2 teaspoons cinnamon
Mix dry ingredients and spices well. Add other ingredients and mix well. Note: bread batter will be thick. Grease and flour pan. I used a bundt pan but you can use a bread or cake pan.
Cover with foil to avoid burning.
Bake on 350 degrees for 1 hour 15 – 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Note: I did not remove bread from the bundt pan.
*According to the USDA, consuming roughly one half of a teaspoon of cinnamon per day or less leads to dramatic improvements in blood sugar, cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides.
*According to the Mayo Clinic, antioxidants play an important role in our health. Antioxidants are substances that may protect your cells against the effects of free radicals and play a role in preventing heart disease, cancer and other diseases. Key ingredients in this recipe include: banana, pecans, and apples (note apples with peel provide a better source of antioxidants). As a bonus, fruits, vegetables and whole grains high in antioxidants are also typically high in fiber, low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and good sources of vitamins and minerals.
