Gluten Free Apple Bread Recipe

Gluten Free Apple Bread Recipe

Gluten Free Apple Bread Recipe, anyone? ‘Tis the season for all things pumpkin, cranberry, apple, warm and spicy! You might have already seen my new post: Gluten Free Cranberry-Orange Quick Bread – Mmmmmm! Well this is another recipe where you’ll want to do the proverbial dog-ear (how do you do that on mobile?!).

My Gluten Free Apple Bread recipe is one of those “have it your way” recipes that you can spice up or down to suit your taste; you can also make the apples smooth and saucy so you barely notice them, or big and chunky so there’s no doubt this recipe is screaming “I love apple!”. And by the way, it is AH-mazing with my homemade apple butter recipe. You gotta try it.

I’ve partnered with Blendtec® to show you how versatile and yummy this gluten free apple bread can be, no matter how you choose to make it. And yes, you can make it in a blender! How’s that for handy?

Whatever method you choose, it’s a far healthier than traditional oil-based quick breads like zucchini bread — in fact, there’s no oil at all! Use Greek yogurt or what I use — vegan coconut yogurt or soy sour cream. You can even sub out the sugar for unrefined coconut palm if you like. I told you this was a “have it your way” kind of recipe!

Slicing Gluten Free Apple Bread

This loaf of gluten free apple bread was made in the Blendtec for a smooth batter with no apple chunks.


I promise you’re going to love it any way you bake it — even as muffins (if that’s your way); heck, make it several times and make it different every time. Even the kind of apple you choose will influence the flavor.

The one thing you don’t want to do though is use the wrong gluten free flour. NO bean flours here. NO gritty brown rice flour. NO funky flour taste. Use my gfJules™ Gluten Free All Purpose Flour and everyone you share this recipe with will love it, gluten free or not.

  1. I love gfJules flour and use it for Everything. I can’t do without it. It makes the best simple bread, the best lemon bars, cookies, and even the smoothest white sauce. But wheat and gluten aren’t the only food intolerances I have so the Blendtec would be a blessing to make nut butters, soups, sauces, and my favorite – hummus.

  2. My husband has Celiac so we are a GF family. This fancy blender would make everything easier. I struggle to blend sauces and dressings together in my tiny food processor and it just doesn’t cut it. I am intreagued by the bread making possibilities. We’ve been GF for 6 years and I’ve never ventured into breads. I miss bread.

  3. My family is gluten free for our health. My daughter is sensitive to wheat, oranges, and soy. Since taking those out of the diet, her seasonal eczema, allergies, and cough have disappeared!!! The Blendtec would make preparing food so much easier. Thanks for the chance!!!

  4. Being gluten-free has helped get rid of my brain fog and helped my digestive health. Two of my six kids are gluten sensitive as well. This summer, our while family began eating gluten-free while at home to make food prep easier and safer. I’m loving having all of us eat gluten-free at home and any tools I can have to make the journey quicker and more convenient are a welcome addition to my kitchen!

  5. My son and I were diagnosed with celiac 13 years ago. I had to bake my own bread then since there really weren’t any gf breads available in my local grocery store. This blender and Jules’s mixes would have been a dream come true. Now things are sooo different thanks to great people like Jules! What a great giveaway just before Christmas! Fingers crossed! Thanks!

  6. Discovered gluten was the cause of my misery two years ago. Hubby recently followed and his health has improved as well. I need a blender to help with food prep; currently I borrow my daughter-in-law’s machine. Thanks for the give-away!

  7. we are gluten free because my daughter and husband are allergic to wheat. (anaphalactic) My daughter is 6, and I hate to have her feel left out at all. So I try to make all our own baked goods. This would be a huge blessing in helping me to help her not feel left out! Thank you!

  8. I would love to have this for my daughter in college who is struggling with Gastroparesis and having a hard time with foods soft enough to digest. What a blessing this would be for her last two college years.

  9. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 5 years ago after nearly dying. I need to find ways to cook goodd homemade gf food and I believe the Blendtec could help me do that! Thank you Jules, for all you do!

  10. I’d love to use the blendtec to make my own pesto for pesto bread and the possibilities are endless of how many things it will make easier. I’ll prob use it to make my own coconut milk that I use in my baking as well.

  11. I just started eating GF about 4 months ago when I learned about leaky guts. I have many AI conditions and I am hoping that eating GF will help with those conditions and symptoms. I would love to win this blender to help me in preparing all the new GF recipes I am finding on this website and the internet.

  12. I am a first time 32 year old mom with Crohn’s disease to a beautiful daughter and want to pass on good eating habits to my daughter for a lifetime of good nutrition. Having this blender will make it easier to make good gluten free food for her and for my family and will be able to spend more time with her. I have chosen to go gluten free not only for her but to show her that you can still have really great food and be healthy. Since going gluten free my Crohn’s has been in remission and I feel that good nutrition (gluten free) has played a huge part in this.

    • I would love to win this Blendtec blender. Ive been CD for 30 years and this would be a great product for many uses for this amazing product would also free up space in my kitchen!
