Cinnamon Swirled Apple Butter Bread: a soft and moist loaf made with the most amazing apple butter, fresh apples, and a delicious cinnamon sugar swirl.


  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour 
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats 
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted (or butter)
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar 
  • 1 cup apple butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 apple, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tbsp flour (I used more almond flour)

Cinnamon Swirl:

  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon 


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together coconut oil, coconut sugar, apple butter, eggs, and vanilla until well incorporated.
  4. Pour dry ingredients into your wet ingredients and stir until all is well combined.
  5. Toss the chopped apple in 1 tbsp flour (this helps the apple pieces not to sink in the loaf) then fold into the batter. 
  6. In a small bowl mix together the coconut sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
  7. Pour 1/2 of the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle 3/4 of the cinnamon sugar on top, then pour and spread the remaining batter. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar on top of the loaf then bake in the oven for 60-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  8. Let your loaf cool entirely before removing and slicing.


  1. Note that if under-baked, this will be a very moist loaf. Make sure not to under-bake it!
  2. I like using my homemade apple butter recipe but you can also use store bought.
