  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 2 medium-sized sweet-tart apples diced but not peeled
  • 4 tablespoons water



  • Preheat the oven to 350Line a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper and lightly spray the inside with coconut oil.
  • For the apples, add all ingredients to a medium skillet over medium heat. Cover the skillet and cook until the apples are softened but not mushy and the liquid is evaporated, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool.
  • For the bread, whisk together the almond flour, milled golden flaxseed, Swerve Confectioners, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and nutmeg in a in a large bowl.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the ghee or coconut oil, eggs, cream, water, vanilla, vinegar, molasses, and stevia glycerite.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry all at once and stir to combine, being careful not to over-mix. Fold in the cooled apples.
  • Immediately pour the batter into the prepared pan (the batter will be thick), and spread it out evenly.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 65 to 75 minutes. (You can drape a piece of foil over the top if it starts to get too brown before the inside is cooked through.)
  • Cool the bread on a wire rack before slicing. Store any leftovers wrapped in the fridge for up to 1 week.


  • Net Carbs: 6g per serving
  • Recipe yields 1 (9 by 5-inch) loaf; cut it into 12 slices and 1 slice is 1 serving.
  • You can make this recipe into muffins. It makes 18 muffins; bake them in a paper-lined muffin tray at 350F for 18 to 22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with just a couple crumbs.
  • Instead of ½ cup Serve Confectioners, you can use ⅔ cup powdered monk fruit/allulose sweetener.
  • Instead of ¼ teaspoon stevia glycerite, you can use a scant ½ teaspoon liquid stevia extract.
  • To reduce the carbs even further, omit the blackstrap molasses and add ½ tablespoon keto brown sugar.
  • A handful of walnuts or pecans is delicious in this bread! Stir them in along with the cooked apple.
  • Once this bread is a few days old, I like to toast it before serving.
