We bought a bunch of fresh blueberries when they were on sale for .88 for 8 oz, so today we decided to make some Blueberry Oatmeal Bread. We found the recipe on Betty Crocker's website here and we veganized it.
The bread turned out really good. The recipe and instructions below are changed from the original to include the vegan replacements I added and a few changes.
2/3 cup of Brown Sugar
3/4 cup of Organic Soy Milk (or any vegan milk)
1/2 cup of Coconut Oil (make sure it's melted but not hot because you will be mixing it with the egg replacer)
2 egg replacers - I used Bob Red Mill's Egg Replacer- 2 tablespoons mixed with 6 tablespoons of water
2 1/4 cups of unbleached flour- add 1/2 cup at a time, may use a little less flour next time.
1 cup of Old Fashioned Oats or Quick Cooking
3 teaspoons of Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of fresh blueberries
1. Heat over to 350 degrees, Grease bottom of 8-9 inch loaf pan- I greased mine with Earth Balance butter
2. In large bowl, mix brown sugar, soy milk, coconut oil, and egg replacer with spoon. Stir in remaining ingredients except blueberries, beat for 30 seconds. We found it easier to mix with our hands after adding the remaining ingredients. Fold in Blueberries, put into pan, sprinkle top with oats and a little brown sugar.
3. Bake for 45 - 55 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. I baked mine for 45 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes then loosen sides of loaf from pan, remove from pan to wire rack or equivalent. Let cool for 2 hours before slicing. Wrap and store up to 4 days or refrigerate up to 10 days according to original website ( 10 days??? this won't last 10 minutes here )
