How to make almond flour apple bread:

To start, mix the dry ingredients into a bowl together. This includes the almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Then in another bowl, whisk the olive oil, coconut sugar, eggs, and vanilla together. I like to do this with a fork.

Then, stir in the chopped apples, shredded apples, and blueberries.

Add half of the flour mixture to the wet mixture and mix. Then pour the rest of the flour mixture into the bowl and mix again.

Then pour the Paleo apple bread batter into the loaf tin.

Next you make the crumb topping by mixing coconut sugar, almond flour, chia seeds, cinnamon and olive oil together. Sprinkle it on top of the batter in the loaf tin, press down lightly and then bake!

I hope you enjoy this gluten-free apple bread almond flour creation! It is one of my favorites this time of year!

Tips and FAQs for making this Paleo apple bread:

(1) Make sure you use blanched almond flour. It’s better to bake with than almond meal.

(2) Make sure to add shredded apples and not just diced apples.

Part of what makes this apple blueberry bread great is the combination of shredded apples, diced apples and blueberries

(3) The chia seeds in the crumb topping are optional, but they add a nice crunch to the top.

(4) Can you use something besides olive oil here?

If you don’t want to use olive oil, you can use any other neutral light flavored oil of your choice.

(5) Cook until the bread is golden and the top has hardened.

It is important not to undercook this bread, so it may look a little overcooked but that is ok because the inside is fine!

(6) Can you use arrowroot flour instead of tapioca flour?

Honestly, I do not know. I know that both flours are often swapper for the other, but since there is such a big amount of tapioca flour used here ( 1/2 cup), I would be hesitant to recommend swapping it out for another flour.

(7) Can you use frozen blueberries here?

Yes, but I would let them thaw first in a colander so that the extra liquid can drain out. This ensures your bread won’t be soggy.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 in x 5 in loaf pan and line with parchment paper. ( I used an olive oil spray).

  • In a large bowl, whisk or beat together the olive oil, coconut sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the chopped apples, shredded apples, and blueberries. Add half of the dry flour mixture and mix, then add the other half and mix again. Pour the batter into the loaf tin.
  • Then make the crumb topping. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl (coconut sugar, almond flour, chia seeds, cinnamon, and olive oil). Sprinkle the crumb topping mixture over the top of the batter and press down lightly.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes, until the top is hard, crisp, and browned.
