Our Low-Carb Apple Cinnamon Bread Recipe

This delicious recipe can be made using a muffin tin, individual square brownie pan, or small mini loaf pans.

You can even cook it in a standard 9x5-inch loaf pan. Adjust your cook time based on the pan you are using.

Best Apples to Use:

Most people favor firm, tart apples over sweet apples for baking. You can use whatever you prefer. Some of our favorites include:

  • Fuji apples

  • Golden Delicious

  • Granny Smith apples

  • Honeycrisp apples


  • 3/4 cup almond flour

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour

  • 1/4 cup milled flaxseed

  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon. ground cinnamon

  • 2 large eggs (room temperature)

  • 2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter

  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce

  • 1/4 cup milk (I use almond)

  • 3 tablespoons Fiberyum Tapioca Soluble Fiber Syrup

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 large apple cut into 1/4- inch slices or chunks

  • 1 cup chopped pieces (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Lightly grease or spray the brownie pan, muffin tin, or mini loaf pans.

  3. In a large bowl, combine all of your dry ingredients.

  4. In a small bowl, whisk 2 eggs. Once the eggs have been whisked, you can add the wet ingredients (yogurt, applesauce, flax milk, syrup, and vanilla extract).

  5. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl of dry ingredients and stir until combined. Gently fold the sliced or chopped apple pieces into batter.

  6. Evenly distribute batter into your chosen muffin tins or baby bread pans.

  7. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to continue cooling. (Note: When cooking in a full-size prepared loaf pan, the cook time will likely be longer.)

I made mine into “muffin tops” using a muffin top pan, and they cooked for approximately 18 minutes.

Mixing It Up

If you enjoy this recipe, there are ways you can mix it up and add a different flavor to it.

  • Consider adding 1/2 cup of pecans to the batter for a bit of a crunch and a lovely, complimentary taste.

  • Do you enjoy bread or muffins with a crumb topping? Mix a sugar-free brown sugar substitute with some melted butter and top the raw batter before baking.

  • Sometimes, a nice glaze is tasty on a warm muffin. You can mix sugar-free powder sugar with milk and drizzle it over the top. Or, sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top before baking.

  • If you are baking mini loaves, you can mix cinnamon with unsalted butter that has been melted. Add the mixture to the batter and use a butter knife to swirl it in to make a cinnamon swirl effect.

  • This quick bread recipe is also excellent using diced fresh peach in place of the apple mixture.
