Coconut Apple Loaf Gluten and Dairy Free

Coconut Apple Loaf  
Looking around the kitchen we noticed that our Good Food Box apples were starting to go soft and needed to be used.  We had been talking about making Morning Glory Muffins and we could make apple muffins instead.  

Mixing coconut apple loaf

The more I thought about this however the more I really wanted a loaf something that I could substitute for bread in my lunches.  Thus is was that we created this coconut apple loaf recipe.

Apple Butter and Coconut Oil
Not wanting to use sugar or butter we substituted coconut oil and gluten free, sugar free apple butter and to add further sweetness and flavour the coconut flakes.

1 cup quinoa flour
½ cup potato starch
½ cup tapioca starch
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup coconut flakes
½ cup chopped pecans
¼ cup coconut oil
2/3 cup apple butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup coarsely grated apples skins left on

Mix all of this ingredients together and pour into your loaf pan.

Bake at 350 F for between 45 and 60 minutes depending on your oven and elevation above sea level.
