Slightly sweet, oil-free, and totally satisfying, this makes a great breakfast on the run. I know you want to eat it all in one sitting (I do, too), so to avoid that calorie splurge, cut it into single servings, wrap each in plastic wrap, and put them in the freezer until needed. This also makes a great baked gift. Wrap it up, tie it with a bow—now you’re everyone’s favorite breakfast baker!

Adapted from Kathy Freston’s The Book of Veganish. Original recipe by Robin Robinson.

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups unsweetened applesauce
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup plain unsweetened almond milk or plant milk
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds mixed with 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 2 cups all-purpose or whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the applesauce, brown sugar, almond milk, and flax mixture and stir until smooth and well mixed. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients just until blended. Stir in the walnuts, then transfer the batter to a 9x5-inch loaf pan, spreading evenly and smoothing the top.
  4. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in the pan for about 20 minutes, then remove from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack.

This is delicious, but I would definitely plan on cooking it for longer than the recommended time!

This is so delicious! I bake mine for 60-65 min and it’s perfect every time. We eat this almost every day!

Hey I’d really like to try this with spelt flour instead of all-purpose flour. Can you recommend good measurements for this please? Google is no good
