Paleo Apple Cinnamon Bread

This delicious grain free and Paleo Apple Cinnamon Bread is so comforting and delicious with a hot mug of coffee, and you’ll love the crunchy nut topping!

Paleo Apple Cinnamon Bread

What is it about a warm buttered toast and a cup of coffee on a chilly morning that just gives ALL THE FEELZ? That’s what I’ve been doing for the past several days ever since making this delicious Paleo Apple Cinnamon Bread and it’s what’s been getting me out of bed when it’s usually too cold to.

This bread is just so yummy and I love that the apple flavor really shines through without it being overly sweet. It’s sweetened mostly with applesauce making it a healthy treat, unlike other similar breads I’ve tried which is overpowered by high amounts of sugar and doesn’t even taste like real apples at the end of it.

The applesauce not only gives the bread flavor, it also creates a delicious moistness (sorry if you hate that word) so it won’t dry out even if you decide to toast the slices like I’ve been doing. And the crunchy nut topping with that soft fluffy bread is just the most delectable texture combo. Best of all, the prep time is less than 5 minutes, so most of the work to make this recipe is done by the oven. It’s definitely my kind of recipe!

Paleo Caramel Apples

These sweet dairy free and Paleo Caramel Apples are the ultimate Fall treat that’ll take you right back to your childhood!

Paleo Caramel Apples

I still remember my first caramel apple because it wasn’t until I was in middle school when I tried it. Growing up in a Korean household, caramel apples were a foreign concept that I couldn’t even dream of. When I took a bite into one during an annual carnival in our town, my taste buds were pleasantly surprised at this delicious sweet treat.

Since then, I’ve had it a handful of times but definitely not in the recent years after going gluten and dairy free. Plus, caramel apples aren’t really something you come by often, unless you are at a fair or an amusement park. The ones you can buy at these places are usually milk based and contain corn syrup, so they are a no-no for someone like me. That’s why i was so excited about making these Paleo Caramel Apples, which are much healthier and easier on the digestion, without missing out on the flavors!

Paleo Caramel Apples

When you make this recipe, I highly recommend you make your life easier by following this method: Once you make the thick and sticky caramel sauce, transfer it to a small bowl just narrow enough to fit the apples. This makes the coating process much more effortless without having to tilt the apples too much.

If you like a bit of a crunch factor, you can dip the apples in your favorite nuts, coconut flakes, or even chocolate chips after coating them with the caramel sauce. I dipped mine in chopped toasted walnuts and I loved this combo.

I hope you try these Paleo Caramel Apples because you are going to love them, especially if you are an apple dessert lover!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Line a large plate or baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Skewer the apples with popsicle sticks and if using, prepare a bowl of chopped toasted nuts or coconut flakes, if using.

  3. Combine coconut milk, coconut sugar, honey, cinnamon, and salt in a small saucepan, and heat over medium high heat.
  4. Let the mixture come to boil for 2 minutes, while whisking constantly.
  5. Turn down the heat to low and let simmer for 15 minutes, stirring frequently. The mixture should reduce and thicken.
  6. Take off heat and stir in vanilla extract.
  7. Let sit at room temperature for 10-15 until the caramel sauce thickens further. I like to transfer my sauce to a small bowl narrow enough to just fit the apples for easier dipping while cooling.
  8. Dip the apples in caramel sauce, then into the bowl of chopped toasted nuts or coconut flakes, if using.

  9. Place the apples on the parchment paper. Transfer into the refrigerator for 1 hour or longer to cool completely.

  10. Enjoy!

Paleo Apple Bacon Muffins

Guys, these muffins! I got this idea after making my apple bacon pancakes, and how much I loved them. The two flavors go together so well and I just love that combination of sweet and savory.

While pancakes are amazing, I wanted something that I can make ahead of time since mornings are when I’m the most productive and I’d rather spend that time getting some work done than in the kitchen. Enter: these Paleo Apple Bacon Muffins!

These muffins can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week, and I’ve been just toasting them in the oven in the morning and eating them with eggs. SO delicious. They are even better with a slather of grass-fed butter on them, and it’s a great go-to snack as well.

This recipe makes 6 large muffins, but you can double the recipe for a standard 12-muffin pan. I actually highly recommend you do with these Paleo Apple Bacon Muffins because you won’t regret it if you do. There’s something so delightful when apple and bacon comes together, and I’m pretty sure we all need more of it in our lives… Right? Just go make these if you agree!
