Gluten, Dairy and Sugar Free Apple and Carrot Bread

Makes 1 loaf

My clients who need to avoid gluten, dairy and sugar were the inspiration for this delicious bread, which turned out AMAZING!  It’s savory with a hint of natural sweetness from the apples and carrots.  It’s loaded with healthy fats to keep you satisfied and the walnuts add protein and bring a crunch to each slice.  It’s perfect to enjoy for breakfast, dessert or anytime snack.  I personally love it with some almond butter, ghee or a dollop of coconut yogurt on top!
