Gluten-Free Apple Almond Bread

It was unseasonably warm in the northeast today.  I wonder if this means that spring will make an early arrival!  We did make it outside for a little bit so the kiddos could get some fresh air and run around.  I was doing some meal planning in the morning and trying to figure out what I wanted to make for breakfast.  Since my donut hole tray is on the need of replacement and I haven't made it to Michael's yet I decided to bake a bread for breakfast instead.  I realized it's been a while since my last bread recipe on the blog!  I went with apples because they don't seem to be on anyone's favorite list lately and we need to use them up!  For this bread I used both almond and quinoa flours for a double punch of protein, a nutty flavor and a tender texture.

Here is the recipe I used:
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup quinoa flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 cup coconut sugar
2 eggs
2 tbsp almond butter
2 tsp vanilla
1 large apple grated

I baked the bread for 25 min at 355 F.  It makes roughly 10 servings. 

I will be serving the bread with almond butter for breakfast and some fruit on the side.  There are 2.7 g of protein/slice!  If you have a nut allergy, you can use coconut oil/butter or regular butter in the mix.

Hope you enjoyed this post-  thank you for reading!
