Here’s my solution to getting some apple pie when I’m on a diet, haha. This way, you can enjoy all the great flavors of apple pie, without the pie crust and extra calories!
Ingredients Used to Make Apple Pie Stuffed Bread

- Baguette (French Bread) – Recipe is for a 12 inch loaf, so double or triple recipe for longer loaves
**Gluten-Free Option: you can now buy gluten-free baguettes in most grocery stores, if not, online.
- Apple pie filling – store bought or homemade. Here’s my 10 minute cinnamon sugar apple pie filling recipe HERE
How to Make
How to Make Apple Pie Stuffed Baguettes
Hollow out the french bread loaf: First, slice the ends of the french bread and CAREFULLY use a long serrated knife to hollow out the center of the loaf, leaving half an inch of crust intact
TIP: longer french bread loaves are harder to hollow out, so I usually cut the longer ones in half or thirds and work with shorter loaves
Use prepared apple pie filling – homemade (recipe here) or store bought. Afterwards, spoon in the apple pie mixture into the bread starting from one end, pushing down the filling so that it is well stuffed. Stuff the other side with filling.
Seal the stuffed bread in a large Ziploc bag or container, and store in the fridge for 30 minutes (up to 1 day) to allow the filling to set. This will make slicing the bread easier.
Slice before serving. Enjoy!

What are some ways you can eat stuffed bread?
- After slicing, I love to toast the slices (face up) for a few minutes until warm and toasty in the oven.
- You can also dip in a milk and egg mixture — fry them up to make apple pie french toast!
How to Store
- You can store the uncut loaf or slices of the stuffed bread in the fridge up to 3 days. This is a perfect make-ahead party appetizer, so you can make this the day before and slice when you’re ready to serve to guests!
- After stuffing the bread with the filling mixture, let the stuffed bread cool in the fridge for about 30 minutes before slicing. This step lets the filling inside the bread cool and set, so that the stuffing stays in when you slice the loaf
- Use a sharp, serrated knife to cut the bread
