Why is apple cake the best thing in the world?! This is one of those recipes I can eat all year around – not just in the fall! Apples are my favorite fruit forever and always. And they make for the best addition in this cinnamon coconut sugar bread.

I love that this recipe is vegan, gluten-free and nut-free. And some how it doesn’t taste like cardboard! Crazy.. I know. It is the ultimate healthier apple bread to make when you are craving a sweeter bread for breakfast, snack or dessert. I love having it warm with some vanilla ice cream on top and some caramel sauce too – INSANE.

This recipe can also be made in traditional cake form if you prefer too. You guys know I love all things in loaf form though so I always lean towards baking it in a bread dish.

Plus you can also freeze this cake for holidays or if you want to just save half for later. It is one of those recipes you will keep wanting to come back to and bake over and over again. I cannot even tell you how many times we have made it since I first tested it. It is truly one of our favorites ever.

If you guys make this, let me know what you think!! I hope you love it as much as we do.

  1. I wanted to try this but was also craving the cinnamon roll banana bread so I made this recipe minus 1/2 cup of sugar and made the cinnamon roll part of the cinnamon roll banana bread recipe. I put half the apple bread batter in the pan, topped with half the cinnamon roll mixture, repeated and swirled together. Omg it was incredible!! I know it drives bloggers crazy when modifications are made, but I couldn’t resist popping in to give this 5 stars as it would be delicious as written as well!

  2. I added some maple syrup when I made this and it turned out better than I imagined! Great recipe, thank you!

  3. I made it two ways and both were gone in 2 days. Once as is and once with subs for my toddlers (1c monkfruit sweetener & applesauce instead of oil). Thank you for this!
