Fruity Vegan Breakfast Loaf Recipe
If you are the breakfast-on-the-go type who enjoys a touch of sweetness with your morning meal, the following recipe is for you! My Fruity Breakfast Loaf is vegan, full of fruit and has no added sugar (other than the vegan chocolate chips). This recipe is 100% kid approved and makes a healthy lunch box “sweet treat” or after school snack (my boys can polish off over half a loaf after a long day of learning).
Enjoy a slice of this moist and tasty loaf with a cup of coffee or tea after a long weekend run.
1/3 cup (75 mL) melted coconut oil
1 jar (128 mL/4.5 fl oz) pureed prune baby food
2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla extract
1 cup (250 mL) brown rice flour
1 cup (250 mL) rolled oats
¼ cup (60 mL) ground flax seed
2 tsp (10 mL) cinnamon
2 tsp (10 mL) baking powder
½ tsp (2 mL) ground ginger
1 very ripe banana, mashed
1 medium apple, grated (*skin left on)
½ cup (125 mL) vegan chocolate chips (*such as Enjoy Life brand)
½ cup (125 mL) unsalted shelled sunflower seeds
Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and beat until well combined. Place batter into a parchment paper lined (or well greased) standard size loaf pan (about 9 inch X 5 inch-2L). Place in center of oven and bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out with little crumb.
Makes 8 servings.
