Vegan Fruit and Veggie Everything Breakfast Loaf

Remember last week when I snuck kale into a delicious batch of cookies? Earlier this week I was in the mood for a breakfast (dessert) bread and I decided to come up with something using greens and oats. As I was chopping up the spinach, I thought “why stop there?” and I decided to throw carrots, raisins, strawberries, blueberries- basically everything that was fresh in my fridge.

The result was today’s Vegan Fruit and Veggie Everything Breakfast Loaf and I’m happy to report that it really hits the spot! It’s hearty, crispy on the top, soft on the inside and full of flavor. It’s perfect for breakfast but I’ve been enjoying it most as a 4 pm energy snack. I recommend toasting a slice and spreading coconut or vegan butter on top…mm!

ps- for those of you following along with my pregnancy I’m now at 29 weeks! The photo on the left was taken at 21 weeks and you can really see how much my bump has popped in the past two months! I’m feeling really good these days although my energy has been all over the place. Some days I wake up at 6am with enough energy to deep clean my entire apartment and other mornings it’s a struggle to get out of bed by 9am. The third trimester definitely is funky so far!

Any third trimester tips from the mamas out there?

  1. This loaf looks delish, will definitely be giving it a try!
    And congratulations on your pregnancy Ilene xox

    • Thanks so much! I haven’t tried it but I would guess that an all-purpose gluten-free flour mix (like Bob’s Red Mill) would do the trick. Let me know how it turns out!

  2. I’ve made these into muffins! So tasty!!! Question, do you think these should stay in the fridge during the week or ok room temp sealed up? Just wondering what you think…thanks!!

    • A muffin version sounds so great! They should be fresh for 3-4 days in an airtight container at room temp but I tend to keep muffins and loaves in the fridge so they last a little longer. I’ll just toast them and add a little coconut butter or oil and they’re perfect for a week or so!

    • I haven’t tried it with any other flours! I would worry about brown rice flour turning out a little dense, but perhaps you could try to blend it with a few other flours? Let me know how it turns out!

    • It’s less firm than bread dough so I wouldn’t recommend baking it without a baking sheet. Do you have a muffin tin? You could turn it into muffins instead! Just make sure to reduce the baking time.
