It's officially Fall, which means it's time to roll out all of my favorite Fall recipes... like this delicious Apple No-Cider Loaf. This sweet, moist loaf reminds me of crisp apple cider, but mixed with a delicious maple dressing... it's a taste of Fall in every bite! Oh, and it's also gluten-free, vegan-friendly, and nut-free. If you love Fall, then you have to make this loaf ASAP!


For the Loaf

  • 1 Cup Apple Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Vegan Butter melted
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2/3 Cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 Cup Oat Milk or other non-dairy milk
  • 2 Cups Oat Flour
  • 3/4 Cups Rolled Oats
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt

For the Maple Frosting

  • 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon Vegan Butter melted
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Oat Milk plus 1-2 teaspoons more to thin, if necessary.


  • Start by preheating the oven to 375 F and lining a 9×5 loaf pan with parchment paper (you can spray the inside of the pan first so the paper sticks to it).
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: apple sauce, melted butter, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and oat milk.
  • Next, fold in the dry ingredients: oat flour, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  • Stir until just combined, and then pour the mixture into your loaf pan.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean.
  • While the loaf is baking, prepare the frosting.
  • In a mеdіum bоwl, mіx together thе роwdеrеd ѕugаr, mарlе ѕуruр, melted butter, аnd oat mіlk. If the frosting is too thick, you can thin it out by adding more milk, one teaspoon at a time.
  • Once the loaf is COMPLETELY cooled, spread the frosting evenly on top. If your loaf isn’t completely cooled, the frosting will melt, so make sure it’s not hot!
  • Sprinkle with an extra dash of cinnamon on top, slice, and enjoy!
