Combine in a small bowl:
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon.
2/3 cup sugar (use more if you want a sweeter bread)
½ cup coconut oil (or use butter or margarine)
Beat in 2 eggs, one at a time.
Stir in 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla
1 ½ cups gluten free flour mix
½ teaspoon xanthan gum (omit if using a flour mix that contains it)
2 teaspoons baking powder
Dough will be stiff
Beat in ½ cup vanilla almond milk (or any milk or milk substitute) until smooth.
Pour half of the batter in a well-greased 9 x 5 loaf pan.
Add half of the apple mixture.
Top with the rest of the batter and then the rest of the apple mixture on top. Pat top apples down into batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
