Grain-Free Apple Bread

I’ve had a lot of fun experimenting with grain-free breads lately, and have fallen in love with using almond meal. It’s an easy way to add healthy fat and fiber to a dish, and yields a dense, nutty texture. I’m a huge fan.

I had this vision of an upside down apple bread and decided to make it happen. I sliced up some apples, placed them on the bottom of a baking dish, topped with batter and said a prayer to the grain-free bread gods.

The verdict? Amazing.  

It’s fantastic on its own with a cup of coffee or as a dessert addition to lunch.

This salad with miso dressing is another story in itself. I’m obsessed.

Do you like to make bread or buy it? I never thought I’d make breads at home -or… bread-type creations- but I’ve been surprised with how inexpensive and easy it is. I always buy brown rice tortillas, though. They’re my favorite for egg burritos ?
