I recently read Wheat Belly by William Davis, MD. I do not have celiac disease or follow a gluten free diet, but wanted to further educate myself on the topic. I found the book enlightening and informative. Definitely thought provoking. While I don’t plan to change to a gluten free diet, I was interested in trying his recipe for Apple Walnut Bread and know that many of you are interested as well. Especially those of you who DO follow a gluten free diet.
We made some small adjustments by using melted coconut oil instead of the other options of walnut oil, extra-light olive oil or butter. The other alternation we made was instead of using sour cream or coconut milk we used plain fat free yogurt.
Overall, we enjoyed the bread, but felt that a drizzle of honey on top was the way for it to be best enjoyed. We also considered adding chopped pieces of apple or pear to the existing recipe for a hint of sweetness. Trust me when I say we are not an overly sugared bunch. But we felt it needed a little something extra.
