So I am not really a huge “Fall” gal.

I know, shocker. Basic white girl over here isn’t obsessed with Fall. I am 100% a summer girl (thank you raynaud’s). Everything about summer just gets me. I love the warm weather, the feel of things are just easier and of course I get to wear white nail polish every week..That is until my finger nails turn yellow from baking and cooking 24/7.

Now don’t get me wrong, Fall has it’s perks. Like the REALLY early stages of Fall. Basically I love September and then when it gets “crisp” in the air I’m like buh bye, time to hibernate until May.

Eating 100 juicy apples (team honey crisp), going to Central Park to see the leaves change and eating bagels for Yom Kippur are pretty much my favorite Fall activities. I don’t get all tingly inside about a PSL since I don’t drink coffee and I’m not a huge Halloween fan. Plus isn’t it Halloween everyday? Or am I the only one who eats Justin’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups daily?

..Don’t answer that

I will probably be making this Paleo Cinnamon Apple Streusel Bread all year around but it’s basically mandatory blogger world to post apple and pumpkin recipes for the next couple of months. I promise you still have a ton of chocolate and peanut butter coming your way though, don’t fret.

This apple bread was inspired by my Mom’s apple cake. Made with the standard baking suspects like butter, flour, sugar, etc. My loaf is made with our usually suspects — coconut flour, coconut oil, you know the drill.. I was shocked when my Dad enjoyed this paleo loaf since he is the number #1 “traditional” dessert kinda guy.

If you make this apple bread, let me know! I can’t wait to hear what you think..

      1. Yep, didn’t see this before and tried using Almond flour… total fail as the bread is too moist to hold itself together. I can tell this would have been a great bread though.

        1. yes! any time there is a sub i know of, it is listed! i don’t recommend subbing grain-free flours like almond or coconut unless noted above

  1. My bread ended up very moist — almost like a bread pudding consistency… I baked it for however long was specified and toothpick came out clean… any thoughts on what may have gone wrong? It’s delicious anyway 😉

    1. I’m sorry to hear that! I haven’t heard this happening before when making. Make sure eggs are at room temp and the ingredients are EXACT no subs!

  2. Made it and it turned out great (even when I ended up having to use 2 different types of peanut butter… whoops!)!

  3. I made this the other day and like someone else commented, mine fell apart and was very similar to bread pudding. I made sure to use room temperature eggs and used exactly the same ingredients and measurements you listed, so I have no idea what went wrong! However, it was seriously one of the best things I’ve ever baked. I actually liked the consistency and I’ll see if it ends up the same way the next time I make this, because I definitely will being doing so again son!

    1. so odd!! if the battle looks liquid-y just add a bit more flour in. also i think that the type of apple used can water it down. try using a gala or fuji next time because they are less watery.

      1. Yes, same thing happened to me… I’m wondering if that’s just how the bread is–a little denser/puddingier than normal bread?

  4. Made this recipe into muffins and they turned out great! I kept everything the same, except I just shortened the baking time to 30 minutes. SO yummy! Thank you for all your healthy kitchen inspiration!
