If you saw my Instagram stories, you’ll know I ate it all in 24 hours (with the help of a friend – but I take full responsibility for eating all the apple chunks and nuts! LOL). That being said, this loaf will become a favorite as it already has for me.
Bring it to Thanksgiving, Christmas, and that random night in with your friends while you watch classic movies and drink a cup of apple cider (can you tell I’m really into apples these days?)
Ok, now for the recipe that will replace your apple pie for life!
For the bread:
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup walnut, pecan, or almond butter (I used a mix of Artisana Organics butters to equal 1 cup)
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup coconut sugar (optional, I didn’t add it since the apples were sweet enough for me)
1/4 cup of Further Food collagen (15% off: lilsipper)
1 extra large apple
walnut or pecan pieces
1. Mix eggs and baking soda with an electric mixer, then add nut butter, spices, sugar and collagen (if using) and continue mixing.
2. Finely chop apple and fold in 3/4 of the apples into the batter and pour into a bread pan. 3. Top with remaining apple pieces and nuts to taste. Bake at 350 F for about 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean from center. Allow to cool before topping with caramel (recipe below)
Melt above ingredients and stir until a sauce forms, then place in refrigerator for it to get thick (time will vary). It will eventually become solid, but you can always reheat to make a sauce again, or slightly heat to make it a “frosting” consistency.
*I also recommend adding sea salt to bring out the flavor.
