Cherry Apple Bread

I went through Granny Smith apple phase where I was eating them pretty much every day and then I got tired of them but I had some on hand that I didn't particularly feel like chomping into so I thought why not chop them up and bake a bread?

Well, this was indeed an experiment. If I had to do over, I would add more flour and perhaps another egg or use less apple but all-in-all, I'd call it a baking success.  I wasn't sure if cherry would go well with it but it sounded good at that time. And it was :)

Cherry Apple Bread:

2 1/4 cup brown rice flour
1 tbls arrowroot flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 eggs
1 tbls vanilla
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup cherries
2 tbls 100% cherry juice
3 cups peeled and diced granny smith apples
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted


In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all of the wet ingredients except for the coconut oil and fruit. Add in all of the dry ingredients and blend thoroughly. Next, add in the fruit and lastly the coconut oil. Once everything is blended together, pour into a greased loaf pan (I used coconut oil) and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. At 20 minutes, cover the bread with foil or another pan and bake for another 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Enjoy (fresh and warm out of the oven ;))
