I like to experiment with ingredients and try new recipes. I have made a cake called a Hummingbird cake that calls for sweet potato. I had that framework in mind when I made up this bread. I used the sweet potato and an apple, which provides next texture and moisture.
To that I added the gluten free flours and the nut flour blend to make a bread with flavor, fiber, texture and taste! It also has a combined sugar of zero calorie sweetener and honey to give it subtle sweetness, but not a "sweet" overkill.
You will want this bread added to your Sunday morning baking!
