You are going to love my new recipe for vegan gluten-free gingerbread loaf! It’s moist, fluffy, perfectly sweetened, rich with molasses and so easy to make.
Let’s get baking!
The preparation for this recipe only takes about 15 minutes. First, you will combine the wet ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk together, then you will combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk as well. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir with a wooden spoon.
Pour the batter into a loaf pan then bake for about 35-40 minutes. I baked mine for about 38 minutes. You’ll want to bake it until a toothpick or a fork comes out clean.
The ingredients in this vegan gluten-free gingerbread loaf are clean + simple.
It’s made with flax, almond flour, applesauce instead of oil, arrowroot flour and yummy aromatic holiday spices! Yummy and healthy!
Make this for the holidays and your guests will be beyond impressed. I have a confession, the day I made this, we ate the whole loaf in one day. Granted, it was shared among 4 people, but still….it’s AMAZING.
- What kind of frosting did you use? I used Miss Jones Vegan frosting – the vanilla flavor. As far as frostings go this one has pretty clean ingredients.
- Do I HAVE to use frosting or can I just make the loaf and have it plain? The loaf is absolutely delicious by itself too. You can omit the frosting if you’d like.
- What if I have a nut allergy and can’t use almond flour? I have only tried this recipe with almond flour but you can try it with oat flour if you want!
- How long does this take to bake?! It only takes up to 40 minutes. Let it cool before cutting into it.
- How should I store the gingerbread loaf? Store covered at room temperature for 3 days.
Do you need a delicious healthy vegan gluten-free dessert for the holidays?! This is going to be your new favorite, I promise.
Bring this loaf to a Christmas party, a holiday pot luck, a dinner with friends, or even just to share with your family and friends during the holidays.
