Applesauce Bread *sugar free, gluten-free

Mmm mmm. I’ve got a bad cold and I can still taste this one. Sweet, nutty and soft. I’ll be eating this for dessert and as a snack this week!


  • 1 3/4 cup GF mix (I’ll share the one I use below)
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup toasted almonds, chopped
  • mixed: 1 egg + 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup sugar (I used maple syrup powder and a bit of honey)
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
  • small handful of Chia seeds
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray or butter loaf pan (approx 8.5 X 4.5 X 3).
  2. Toast nuts: Sprinkle in shallow pan and place in oven 7-10 minutes or until slightly browned. Chop until fine.
  3. In a mixing bowl, blend the flour, xanthan gum, salt, baking powder, soda and chopped nuts (and optional Chia seeds)
  4. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and then add the sugar. Then mix in applesauce. Pour in the flour mix and stir until well blended.
  5. Spoon the batter into the pan and bake 45 to 50 min. or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Cool a bit and enjoy! Wrap airtight and store at room temp.Image
