  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3/4 cup rye flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup plain nondairy yogurt preferably coconut
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened nondairy milk or as needed
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup molasses, or barley malt syrup
  • 2 tablespoons safflower oil


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine the first 5 (dry) ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir together.
  • Combine the remaining ingredients in another mixing bowl and whisk together until smoothly blended.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture, using enough milk to make a smooth, stiff batter. Stir together until completely combined.
  • Pour the batter into a lightly oiled 9- by- 5- by 3-inch loaf pan. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a knife inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  • When cool enough to handle, carefully remove the bread from the pan, place it on a rack or platter, and allow it to cool until just warm before slicing.

    this recipe is super yum, and totally do-able to throw together after work and pop in the oven! when variations were suggested by Nava, I chose soy milk, plain soy yogurt, and molasses. I actually did not have safflower oil on hand and I either subbed canola or vegetable oil.

    Would anything be able to replace the non-dairy yogurt?

      You can use no-sugar added applesauce for similar results; the bread will be slightly sweeter.
