Gluten-Free Applesauce Bread Recipe

I made fresh applesauce from our neighbor’s un-sprayed apple trees to take to a family gathering. When the gathering was postponed, I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it all, it was far too much for me to eat by myself, therefore, Gluten-Free Applesauce Bread was made.

I had used Taste of Home recipe for applesauce bread before, however, now that I need gluten free things as well as many family members, I adapted this recipe to suit all the no dairy, no gluten ingredients needed in the families diet and have been told it was fantastic.

  • 2 cup sugar
  • 2 egg
  • 2 ½  cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 ½  teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 ½  teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 cup raisins; optional
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts; optional


Directions to make Gluten-Free Applesauce Bread

  1. Preheat the oven at 350 degrees.

  3. Pour the batter into 2 greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans. Bake for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  4. Cool before removing from pan, slicing and enjoying.
