A sweet and nutty bread, with a filling dose of healthy fats and fiber



For the bottom layer

  • 2 small Fuji or Gala apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

For the batter

  • 1 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of sea salt


  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a small baking dish (mine was 8×8) with nonstick spray or olive oil.
  2. 2. In a bowl, combine the apple sliced with lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon.
  3. 3. Spread a thin layer of the apple mixture on the bottom of the baking dish.
  4. 4. In the same bowl, add your almond meal, flax, sea salt, cinnamon and baking powder. Use a fork to quickly combine the ingredients before stirring in the eggs, coconut oil, honey and vanilla.
  5. 5. Pour the batter over the apple layer. Use the back of the spoon to create an even layer.
  6. 6. Bake for 30 minutes, until cooked through and bubbly.


  • This would also be lovely with berries, dried fruit or chocolate chips 🙂
