Cinnamon Apple Bread

I had the honor of teaching at the Florida School of Holistic Living today and wanted to share a recipe we prepared together. We discussed how sugar and gluten can contribute to inflammation. Here is an alternative baked good that can allow you to enjoy sweetness in a healthier way. Plus, it’s gluten-free and vegan.

Apples also contain pectin, a kind of insoluble fiber that’s prebiotic, meaning it nourishes beneficial gut bacteria.
