Vegan And Gluten-Free Breakfast Recipe: Cranberry Oat Bread

Low-Sugar, Gluten-Free Breakfast: Cranberry Oat Bread

This quick and easy cranberry oat bread is just what you need when busy mornings prevail. It's also a great addition to your banana bread rotation: the gluten-free bread uses ripe bananas and just a touch of honey to sweeten it, so there's not a lot of added sugar.

Mixing dense oat flour with light rice flour ensures the right texture for this cake-like bread. And since it's also dairy- and sugar-free, you'll feel good about grabbing a 159-calorie slice in the morning.

Not all oat flour is gluten-free, so if you are concerned about contamination during production, look for oat flour that is labelled gluten-free. Some baking powder may contain wheat starch, so be sure to check labels.

Vegan And Gluten-Free Breakfast Recipe: Cranberry Oat Bread


  1. 1/2 cup plus 1/8 cup rice flour
    1/2 cup plus 1/8 cup oat flour
    3/4 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
    1 1/4 cups ripe mashed banana pulp (about 3 bananas)
    2 large eggs
    1/3 cup vegan butter spread
    1 tablespoon honey
    1/2 cup dried cranberries
    1/4 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease an 8-by-8-inch pan (or 9-by-5-inch loaf pan) with a small amount of vegan butter.
  2. Whisk together both flours, oats, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside. Whisk bananas, eggs and butter together in a separate bowl. Add honey, cranberries, and lemon juice; mix until blended. Gently stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture until just combined. Do not over-mix the batter.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until lightly browned, 50-60 minutes (allow a little less time for the loaf pan). Allow the bread to cool completely in the pan, about 1 hour. Cut into squares; if using a loaf pan, turn the bread out onto a cutting board and, using a serrated bread knife, slice the bread into 3/4-inch-thick pieces. Arrange on a platter and serve.
