This Paleo Apple Cinnamon Bread is sweet, light, and airy!
So on Monday, I posted a salad, and now I’m sharing paleo apple cinnamon bread! Life is all about balance, yes? . . .
This bread was originally supposed to be cinnamon rolls, but that didn’t quite work out. See, I wanted to make authentic cinnamon rolls made with yeast, not baking powder or baking soda. Unfortunately, my first try was a
bit of a HUGE disaster. The dough was so sticky, I couldn’t even roll it up . . . which is kind of an important step to follow when making cinnamon rolls. After losing quite a bit of dough to the counter, the floor, and my hair, I threw the whole mess in a skillet and hoped for the best.
The result? ACTUALLY pretty good. The texture of the bread was spot-on: it had great rise, a nice chew, and a perfect crust. I liked it, but I thought it could be better (and prettier). The next time I made it, I added cinnamon-spiced apples for some extra flavor — and it was awesome!
I must be on an apple kick — first a Spiralized Apple Crumble, now this apple cinnamon bread! Honestly though, apples really are the perfect transition fruit. They’re classically fall, but they’re not too fall-y. You know? I’m still a little wary about sharing pumpkin recipes this early, even though I literally just made & photographed a nut-free pumpkin loaf this Sunday!
Also, I just realized that the pumpkin loaf is the ONLY pumpkin recipe on my editorial calendar right now!! That’s kind of a problem . . . I got so caught up with all the carrot, sweet potato, butternut squash, and apple recipes that I forgot about pumpkin. *facepalm* I even made a sweet potato spice latte, for crying out loud! Not a pumpkin spice latte, OH NO, but a sweet potato spice latte! What is wrong with me?!
I probably need to get more sleep. And stop thinking about food 24/7. But isn’t that just the life of a food blogger? There are very few things I think about outside the realm of food . . . mainly, school, band, and running. That’s it.
Anyway. Paleo Apple Cinnamon Bread! This bread is SO good, you guys. It’s super simple, and it comes together faster than most yeasted breads — no need to proof overnight! It’s not overly sweet, and I’d say you could eat it for breakfast without feeling guilty. It would be delicious with a drizzle of coconut butter on top!
If I were you, I’d make this right now! . . . but I’d also pin it for later so I always have the recipe. 😉
