This apple coconut bread is a sweet quick bread recipe with fresh apples and coconut oil and coconut milk for moisture

Hello guys! I think it is time we start the apple season around here in a sweet and delicious way. Not like we know any other way to celebrate honestly. This apple coconut bread is the first apple recipe I’ve made this season and it has been a great way to ease into fall spices, apples, caramel and pumpkin. It’s simple; a one-bowl concussion with grated apples, coconut oil and coconut milk in a sweet bread.

Apple Coconut Bread

The recipe is based off one of my favorite sweet breads on the blog, this coconut key lime bread from Quick Bread Love Cookbook. If you haven’t checked out that ebook yet, you should. It’s got some great recipes.

This apple coconut bread has great texture with chewy apples in the bread. Even though it is slightly dense, I loved that it was perfectly combining fresh apples and coconut flavors. I was going to tinker more with the recipe to make the bread a little less dense and fluffy, but I loved the flavors and taste that I didn’t want to sacrifice that. I think you will agree too, so let me know what you think when you try it.

Even though it is still 80 degrees here over the next week, I am very excited to get started on fall baking and this apple coconut bread is a great way to ease into it all.

Happy Fall!!
