Spiced Apple Loaf : Vegan, Gluten Free

This Apple Spiced Loaf tastes so like winter, if honest I always have so many apples hanging around I wanted to find a few new ways to use them and this loaf was certainly worth trying out. It’s Vegan and refined sugar free. I absolutely love apple pie, and honestly this loaf tastes like it but better. It can be served simply with a nice cuppa, toasted with a spread of almond butter, vegan butter or even as a dessert with some vegan custard or ice-cream….or why not try them all ..YOLO.

I don’t have a massive sweet tooth but when I do I try my best to make up my own delights. This loaf is sweet and the chunks of apple give it great texture. Even better It is so simple to make.

Give this a whirl and let me know your thoughts, tag in your socials, share with friends and see what their thoughts are too.
