paleo applesauce snack bread
I came back home inspired to bake.
Also to clear out my freezer, but mostly to bake.
I’m READY FOR FALL, and I had some old applesauce I made over the summer to clear out of the freezer.
So this Paleo Applesauce Snack Bread was born. My favorite way to eat it? Make a snack sammie with Georgia Grinder’s cashew butter and more Wildways vanilla bean espresso granola for an afternoon snack, eaten in between gulps of cold almond milk.
Paleo Applesauce Snack Bread
Paleo, grain free, dairy free | prep time: 10-15 minutes | cook time: 35-40 minutes minutes
1 cup applesauce (I made my own with fresh apples, collagen, vanilla extract, and cinnamon but you can buy a no-sugar added one!)
¼ cup unsweetened almond milk (or df milk of choice)
¼ cup avocado oil
2 tbsp honey or maple syrup (optional; the bread won’t be very sweet without it)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 packet Wildways cinnamon roll grain free hot cereal (you can use some more cassava flour instead of this)
2 tbsp chia seeds
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
4 scoops collagen
2 scoops Ancient Nutrition Keto Cocoa powder*
½ cup goji berries
½ cup walnuts, divided
¼ cup Wildways vanilla bean espresso grain free granola for topping
*Note: You can omit this and use more sweetener of choice because this contains stevia, a little collagen, and some adaptogens along with cocoa, which is what makes it sweet (and supplemental).
Preheat the oven to 350F and line a 9x9 pan with parchment paper (or grease a pan).
In a medium size bowl, add egg, vanilla, honey, nut milk, applesauce, and avocado oil.
Mix well and set aside.
In another medium sized bowl, add Otto's Naturals Cassava flour, Wildways packet, collagen, keto cocoa, chia seeds, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Mix well.
Slowly start to combine the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients ¼ cup at a time until all the dry ingredients are combined into the batter.
Add the walnuts and goji berries into the batter.
Pour and press batter into the prepared pan.
Top with Wildways grain free granola (if you don’t have this, you can top with pumpkin seeds, more walnuts, and dark chocolate chips).
Cook for 35-40 minutes. Check periodically after the first 35 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for a week or in the freezer. Enjoy!
