  • Author: Remy
  • Total Time: 65 mins
  • Yield: 12 servings 1x


A fall treat you can make to use up your apples. Sweet with a little bit of spice, and very moist. Vegan, gluten-free, oil free and refined sugar free.


  • 1/3 cup non-dairy milk + 1 tbsp ACV 
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 heaping tablespoons almond butter or other nut/seed butter
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup quinoa flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
    • or use all oat
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • pinch of cardamom
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • 2 large apples, grated or very thinly sliced

Crumb Topping:


  • Preheat your oven to 350F and prepare your baking pan by lining with parchment paper. The pan I used measures 8.5 x 4.4 inches. Use butterfly clips to hold parchment paper in place if desired.
  • In a small bowl, combine your non-dairy milk and ACV and allow to sit for about 2 minutes or until thickened.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together wet ingredients (maple syrup, applesauce, nut butter, vanilla) and ground flax.
  • Sift in your remaining ingredients (except for grated apples) and mix until combined. Lastly, fold in your grated apple pieces.
  • Transfer mixture into lined baking pan and pop into the oven for about 50 minutes (you may need to bake for additional 5-10 minutes if mixture looks undercooked.
  • In a small bowl, combine all topping ingredients until it forms a crumbly texture. Use your hands to mix.
  • At the 40 minute mark, layer the topping mixture on top of the apple loaf and return to oven to bake until complete.
  • Using a chopstick or toothpick, test to see whether the center of the loaf is cooked through. Once completely cooked, allow the loaf to cool for 15 minutes before enjoying or slicing.
