Watch Me Make Flourless Fresh Apple Bread

Join me in the kitchen as I bake up this healthy flourless apple bread!

Amazing Apple Flavor in Every Bite

This quick bread is flour-free, dairy-free, nut-free and absolutely incredible! With the sweetness of honey, there’s no added white or brown sugar or artificial sweetener. Just fresh apples, oats, honey, eggs, vanilla extract, baking soda and cinnamon. Basically, staples you have in your pantry. And amazing apple flavor in every bite. There’s no added salt, specialty gluten-free flours or coconut oil in it, either. Of course, if you want to make truly a gluten-free apple bread recipe, be sure to use gluten-free oats.

This recipe will have you stocking up on apples and baking a loaf every chance you get. Full of healthy fiber (yay whole grains!), it’s healthy, delicious, and super easy to make.

Blender is Better

Just like my other flourless bread recipes, the batter for this bread is mixed in the blender (this is a no-stir recipe, friends). The blender is a must because the oats need to be well blended with all of the other wet and dry ingredients to get that great texture once the  bread bakes. 

Once baked, you’ll have a moist, tender loaf of apple bread that’s perfectly sweetened from the apple and honey and spiced just right from the cinnamon. The flavor and texture is so comforting and leaves you feeling great!

A big slice of this fresh apple bread with a spread of peanut butter and drizzle of honey is one of my favorite ways to start the day. It fills me up and gives me the energy I need to get the kids to school, workout and tackle my morning to-do list. And, let’s be honest, it tastes like dessert!

It’s also one of our favorite afternoon snacks that keeps us satisfied until dinner.

What Do I Need to Make Flourless Fresh Apple Bread?

  • Apples (about 1.25 pounds)
  • Honey
  • Old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
  • Large eggs
  • Vanilla extract
  • Baking soda
  • Ground cinnamon

How to Make Healthy Flourless Fresh Apple Bread

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 9×5-inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Core and slice the apples. No need to peel unless you want or need to. Add the apple chunks to the blender. Feel free to use your favorite apple. I love using Honeycrisp, Braeburn or Granny Smith.
  • Add the rest of ingredients to a powerful blender and blend until smooth and well combined. Important: Try not to over-blend the batter as this will cause the oats to warm and start cooking into oatmeal which will hinder the loaf from baking with a bread-like texture.
  • Pour the mixture into prepared loaf pan.

  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If the loaf starts to brown more on top before the center is done, tint it with foil until baked all the way through. 
  • Let loaf cool completely in loaf pan (I don’t recommend transferring to a wire rack to cool).

How to Store Fresh Apple Bread

Serve warm or at room temperature. Store leftover bread in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

To freeze bread, first let it cool completely. Then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, and put it into a freezer-safe baggie before storing in the freezer. Wrap the bread as airtight as possible. When stored properly in the freezer, bread will maintain great quality for 2-3 months.

To thaw, let it sit, loosely covered, on the counter for several hours.

  1. This recipe is so simple and the results are incredible. We recently harvested our apple tree and I was looking for healthy, delicious recipes. This one is perfect. Everyone loves it. Thank you so much!

  2. I just made this and although I didn’t have a food processor or blender big enough for the ingredients I decided to make it anyway. I just used quick oats. It came out chunkier than your intended recipe and the corresponding pictures but I crumbled it up like a granola and had it with a small amount of milk drizzled on top. I also added nutmeg and fresh grated ginger for a Fall flavor. Highly recommend!!

  3. Just made these. I used flax eggs and 1/4 cup apple sauce + 1/4 cup maple syrup. Also doubled the cinnamon. I love how theyre not too sweet but just sweet enough. I added walnuts since I love them with apples. Next time i dont think i even need the maple syrup since apples are sweet on their own. Love this recipe. My kitchen smells like apple pie

  4. I made this bread twice. Today was the second time Same result as perfectly described by Luisa M. It tastes good and husband liked that’s is sweet enough without using sugar. I was extra careful not to over-blend the batter. I really wanted to love this recipe but I’m giving up. 🙁

    1. Hi Marianne! Oh no, I hate to hear that. I just baked a loaf and it baked great so I’m so confused why it’s not working for you. What kind of apples are you using?

  5. In the oven. I used Stevia since I ran out of honey, Ambrosia apples because I have them. Smelling awesome. Can hardly wait, also chopped some walnuts mixing them in.

      1. Hi Donna! I haven’t tested the recipe with applesauce so I couldn’t say for sure how much you would need and if any of the other ingredients would need to be adjusted to accommodate it. I would have to test it to say for sure, but I would start by blending all of the other ingredients together and then adding the applesauce 1/2 cup at a time until you get the consistency similar to what you see in the images and video here on my blog. I hope this helps and that it turns out just as great! Enjoy!

    1. Hi Pavan! I don’t provide nutritional information at this time because everyone uses different brands of ingredients which often have differing nutritional values. I would recommend plugging the ingredients you used into a free online nutrition calculator like: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/recipe/calculator Hope this helps. Enjoy!

    1. I have added flax seeds, hemp, pumpkin and sesame seeds. i gave them a whir in a grinder first and then added 1/4 cup of the blended seeds to the loaf. it turned out really well and definitely added extra nutrition.

  6. So good!! Love the recipe and look forward to making it all the time. Can you use all types of apples? Which taste the best with this recipe?

    1. Hi Ava! So happy to hear you enjoy the recipe as much as we do. I really like baking this bread with Honeycrisp, Granny Smith or Fuji apples. Continue to enjoy!

  7. Hi! I LOVE this recipe but all I have is a 4.5 x 11” loaf pan. Does anyone have any recommendation for cooking time and temperature adjustments?

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Juliana! It will bake a little quicker. Probably closer to 25-30 minutes. I would recommend leaving the over temperature the same. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Laura! I have used both, but I most often use old-fashioned because that’s what we have on hand the most.
