Apples, Apples Everywhere!

After a recent trip to Apple Hill, I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with the mountain of apples I came home with. I bought Muzu, Pink Ladies, and Gala, totaling out at about 7lbs. That’s a lot of apples for a two-person household!

In addition to eating a bunch of them slathered with my homemade almond butter, I also baked this awesome bread!

Fall Apple Bread (inspired by this gem from Eating4Balance)

INGREDIENTS:
  • 3 small apples, chopped (I used 2 muzus and 1 pink lady and kept the peel on for extra fiber)
  • 4 large organic eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup organic ghee (butter or coconut oil would probably work fine too)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups nut flour (I used 1 cup almond flour and 1 cup hazelnut flour)
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour (Bob’s Red Mill is probably the easiest to find, but you can also run unsweetened shredded coconut through your food processor if you’re having trouble getting Bob’s)
  • 2 tsp ceylon cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp clove
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9×5 loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. After separating the eggs, place the egg whites in a food processor and blend until stiff.
  4. Add the egg yolks, ghee, honey, banana, and vanilla. Blend until smooth
  5. Toss about two-thirds of the chopped apples into the dry mixture. Then pour in the wet mixture and combine well.
  6. Pour the bread batter into the loaf pan. Top with remaining apple chunks.
  7. Bake for 90 minutes or until it springs back when touched. (If the top starts to get too dark, cover with aluminum foil to slow down browning).

great for breakfast or a midday snack, packed with nutrition and full of flavor. this loaf lasted less than a week — maybe I’ll make double next time!
