Paleo Apple Cinnamon Bread

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!paleo apple cinnamon bread

If I were you, I’d make this right now! . . . but I’d also pin it for later so I always have the recipe. 😉

Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the warm water and honey. Stir in the yeast and let it proof for a few minutes.
  2. While waiting for the yeast, whisk together 1 cup of the almond flour, 3/4 cup of the starch, the xanthan gum, the nutmeg, and the cinnamon.
  3. In another bowl, combine the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and egg. Once combined, blend with the yeast mixture.
  4. Blend the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until homogenous, then for 2 additional minutes. Take a two minute break, then blend for another two minutes. A wooden spoon is recommended.
  5. Add the additional 1/4 cup almond flour and 3/8 cup starch. Blend. Cover the dough and allow it to rise in a warm oven for 45-60 minutes.
  6. Combine all the apple ingredients in a bowl. Microwave for 1-2 minutes on full power, until the apples have softened.
  7. Once the dough has risen, add it into a small cast-iron skillet or 8x8 pan (greased with coconut oil!). Pour the apples on top and swirl them into the dough. Bake at a 350 degree F oven for about 25 minutes, or until risen and golden brown. Serve with coconut butter and/or toasted almonds.
