This apple quick bread tastes of soft apples and warm fall spices. The batter comes together in about ten minutes and is so easy to make. This bread also does not require any flour, butter or cooking oil.
I love baking with apples this time of year and this quick bread really hit the spot. The batter comes together so easily and my kitchen smelled delicious as it was baking. I also love that is healthier than your typical quick bread.
- Almond butter
- Brown Sugar
- Baking Powder
- Diced Apples
I used natural almond butter but regular almond butter will also work. You can also substitute with other nut butters. I don’t recommend peanut butter only because I think the peanut butter flavor is too strong and overwhelms the delicate apple flavor.
The apple flavor for the bread is from using applesauce in the batter and also mixing in fresh apple pieces. You can use sweetened or unsweetened applesauce. I prefer using unsweetened so that I can control the sweetness myself when making the batter.
Using brown sugar makes this bread tastes more like Fall. But you can use white granulated sugar if you don’t have any brown sugar.
Using fresh apples adds apple flavor to the bread and helps keep the bread moist. Choose an apple variety that is sweet. I used fuji apples. Avoid using tart apples because there is not enough sugar in the bread batter to sweeten tart apples.
Even though the bread has no flour, you can’t tell. The texture of the bread is similar to bread made with flour. The bread is also very moist and soft.

Flourless Apple Bread
- 1 cup creamy natural almond butter unsweetened
- 2/3 cup applesauce unsweetened
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar lightly packed
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 heaping cup diced apples (peeled and cored) cut into small cubes about 1/3 inch thick
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 8 x 4 inch baking loaf pan with parchment paper.
- Add all ingredients except apples into a large mixing bowl. Whisk until batter is smooth. Stir in apples.
- Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake about 45-55 minute or until done. Toothpick inserted should come out mostly clean and if you gently apply pressure to the surface of the bread, it should slowly bounce back rather than stay sunken in.
- Let bread cool before slicing and serving.
- If you have a question about ingredient substitutions, I discuss possible substitutions in the post.
- Choose an apple variety that is sweet because the bread is not overly sweet so the apples help add sweetness. I used a fuji apple.
- I did not make this bread super sweet because I like my quick breads to be less sweet than cake. If you prefer sweeter, you can add more brown sugar.
- You can make this in a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. You may need to cut down on the cooking time.
