Apple Walnut Bread

Serves: 12

Happy Monday! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! The boyfriend and I spent the majority of the weekend prepping for ‘Sandy’. As you are reading this right now, I hope that I still have power and that the forecasted damage is much less than what we actually get! For those of you who have already been hit, I hope you are safe and sound with your family! I will be thinking of you!

As promised from last Monday, I am sharing with you the exciting details of the November Fit Photo-A-Day Challenge that Aundra at and I are hosting! This is what the month will look like:

So what exactly IS this challenge?

Each day throughout the month you will take a photo that is related to the item of the day! The exciting part is that you can interpret the ‘word’ however you would like! For example, ‘apple’ can be a piece of fruit, a pie or even a donut! Once you have taken your picture you will share it with everyone on Twitter or Instagram (or both!) using the hashtag #fitphotoaday11! Aundra and I will be able to follow along to see what creative pictures you have shared!

Now for the rules….. ?

1) Snap a photo each day with the given prompt. You can use any kind of camera, even your camera phone.

2) Post the photo to either twitter or instagram (or both) using the hashtag #fitphotoaday11

3) Use a hashtag for the word of the day, too (example for day one: #pumpkin)

4) Posting a photo with the #fitphotoaday hashtag means you’ve given us (or anyone else) permission to retweet it.

*Just because there are rules, doesn’t mean this is work! It is meant to be fun! Yes, we would like everyone to participate as much as possible, but if you happen to miss a day (or two), don’t stress! We will forgive you! ?

More info:

Both Aundra and I will tweet daily with the prompt as a reminder (Aundra’s twitter handle is @poweredbyzumba and mine is @fitchick428). I am really excited to see what creative picture you will come up with!

Mark your calendars for this Thursday, November 1, 2012! That will be the first day…..what will your #pumpkin picture be??? :)

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me, leave a comment or find me on twitter/instagram! :)

Now, onto today’s delicious fall recipe!


  • 1/2c (56g) coconut flour
  • 1/4c (21g) SunWarrior Vanilla Protein
  • 1/3c baking stevia
  • 1 tbs cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cloves
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 5 large eggs
  • 3/4c (170g) apple sauce
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ACV
  • 1 medium apple, diced
  • 1/2c (60g) chopped walnuts, optional (only if you are allergic to them ;))


  • loaf pan
  • parchment paper



1. Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. Line your loaf pan with parchment paper (I have found this make it much easier to remove recipes using coconut flour!)

3. In a bowl whisk your dry ingredients: coconut flour, protein, stevia, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and baking powder.

4. In a second bowl, whisk your eggs, applesauce, vanilla and ACV together.

5. Combine your wet and dry ingredients.

6. Fold in your diced apple and chopped walnuts.

7. Spread the batter evenly in your pan and bake for ~45-50 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden.

8. Allow to cool.

9. Slice into 12 pieces or desired number of servings.

This bread makes the perfect breakfast, snack or dessert! ( I ate it for all 3!) I had it with some greek yogurt on the side and it was amazing! The sweetness from the apples, the crunch from the walnuts and the fall spices….Mmmmm! Plus it was so incredibly soft! This one definitely ranks in the top favorite recipes! This would be a great additional to your Thanksgiving spread!

With a side of greek yogurt! Look at those huge pieces of apple and walnuts!
