Paleo applesauce bread (grain free)

This was perhaps the most delicious bread that I have ever made. It was created after I overbought apples for Johnny Appleseed Day at the boys’ school. I had a gallon sized ziplock bag full of cut and peeled apples and I decided to make applesauce bread instead of banana bread. It is worth every minute that it has to bake…SUPER YUMMY!!

3 cups unsweetened applesauce (I pureed about 6 cups of chopped and peeled apples in the Vitamix)

4 eggs

4 Tbsp ground chia seeds

1 and 1/4 cup water

1 cup pumpkin seed butter

1/3 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup coconut sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 and 1/3 cup coconut flour

1 Tbsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp allspice

2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

Line two 9″x5″ loaf pans with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine applesauce, seed butter, chia seeds, water, coconut oil and eggs and mix well. I did this in batches in my Vitamix to fully incorporate the ingredients. Add the coconut sugar, coconut flour, spices, baking soda, powder and salt to the wet ingredients and mix well. Carefully pour the batter into the prepared pans and spread it evenly.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 90 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean and the top should spring back slightly when pressed. If you touch the top and it feels wet or sinks down at all, it’s not done yet. Keep baking, it’s worth it!! Finally, remove it from the  oven and allow to cool completely before taking the loaf out of the pan.
