Super-Power Chia Bread

Super-Power Chia Bread by Angela Liddon from Oh She Glows

Chewy, hearty, and dense—this isn’t your average slice of bread! Packed with 9 grams protein and more than 7 grams fiber per slice, this bread will keep you going for hours and is a healthier alternative to store-bought bread. Since it’s a staple in our kitchen, I make a double batch every week. Feel free to play around with the herbs and spices as you see fit! Gluten-free, nut-free, oil-free, soy-free, sugar-free option!

Focaccia Bread

Focaccia bread recipe

Though focaccia (a traditional Italian flatbread) is yeasted, it doesn’t take as long to make as other yeasted breads; it only requires one brief rising. Start making this bread just before you put up a pot of soup that needs to simmer for a bit, and the two should be ready simultaneously. Make sure to check out the olive variation following the recipe! more→

Apple Corn Bread

Apple corn bread Annie Taylor Chen from Vegan AnnCompared with traditional bread, this corn bread is closer to cake. However, it’s not the type of cake you bake for special occasions, but a quick bread type of cake that you bake for teatime, afternoon snack, or breakfast. Unlike traditional corn bread, which tends to be a bit crumbly, I use syrup and apple juice to give it a fruity fragrance and extra moisture. This results in a perfect teatime cake with a brownie-like texture, which I happily enjoy with a glass of golden apple juice. Contributed by Annie Taylor Chen, Vegan Ann.

Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Pumpkin Bread PuddingSimple as all get-go, I might argue that it’s even better than that ubiquitous pumpkin bread that everyone and their best friend feels the urge to make around this time of year. Warm, creamy, and comforting, it’s the perfect dessert to ward off those autumn chills while celebrating the season’s bounty. It’s a snap to customize depending on your preference; consider
the spices as a mere suggestion, and a handful or two of nuts, chocolate, or dried fruit never hurt anything. Recipe and photo contributed by Hannah Kaminsky, author of My Sweet Vegan*(reprinted by permission of the author). more→
