This apple bread is delicious and with a few secret ingredients it is good for you too. It doesn’t take long to mix all the ingredients together – the hard part is waiting for it to come out of the oven – it smells delicious and tastes even better!
Vegan Gluten-Free Apple Bread
3 cups gluten-free baking mix (I used Sofella – if you would prefer not to use a baking mix or you are not making this version gluten free, see note below)
1 cup golden brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup white sugar
1 Tablespoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 apple, peeled and shredded
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup canola oil
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup walnuts
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a loaf pan by spraying the insides with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients (from baking mix through nutmeg). In a separate bowl, mix all wet ingredients (from apple cider vinegar through vanilla). Incorporate wet ingredients into dry ingredients and blend thoroughly. Add walnuts and mix well.
3. Pour mixture into prepared loaf pan and bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Allow to cool before removing from pan and slicing.
NOTE: If you cannot find a gluten-free baking mix or do not want to use this, mix the following ingredients in place of the baking mix and follow the recipe: 3 cups flour (either C4C gluten-free flour, or all purpose flour for a traditional recipe), 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon baking powder.
