Breakfast loaves are often made with vegetable oil for moistness, but unsweetened applesauce works just as well. While this loaf is excellent on its own, if you want something a bit more indulgent, try topping your slice with a vegan butter-flavoured spread or a soy-based nut butter. Cost: $0.95 per serving

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 1 1/2 cup gluten-free all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups maple sugar
  • 2 teaspoons each baking soda and cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • pinch ground cloves
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk (such as Thai Kitchen)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup finely shredded carrot (about 1 large)

Method

In small bowl, mix flaxseed meal with 1/3 cup water. Let stand for 5 minutes.

In large bowl, whisk together flour, maple sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, xanthan gum, salt, nutmeg and cloves. In separate bowl, whisk together applesauce, coconut milk, lemon juice, vanilla and flaxseed meal mixture; stir into flour mixture just until combined. Fold in carrot. Scrape into greased 8- x 4-inch (1.5 L) loaf pan, smoothing top.

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until golden and cake springs back when touched, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool in pan for 20 minutes; transfer directly to rack to cool completely.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: Maple sugar is made by boiling sap until the liquid is evaporated. It's less processed than white granulated sugar and twice as sweet!
