Vegan Blueberry Pineapple Bread

For many years I have been meaning to add a vegan and gluten-free version of my very popular Pina Colada Bread with Blueberries.  The time has finally come and I had the opportunity today to do it, the recipe used regular flour but I kept it because of it being a reader’s favorite.

I had a male reader who left me a comment on Facebook saying he makes it very often for his family. I thought that was very sweet of him wanting to make the best blueberry bread ever with the addition of pineapple for a tropical taste.

How To Make Blueberry Pineapple Bread?

To make the bread I used a combination of brown rice flour and almond flour which you can purchase from Bob’s Red Mills. I used organic cane sugar but coconut sugar can be substituted.

For the blueberries fresh or frozen is fine. I made my own applesauce by processing peeled chopped apples and apple juice.

For the pineapple glaze, I processed organic cane sugar in a high-speed blender until powdery then I mix the powdered sugar with pineapple juice.

    Any suggestions on a substatute for powdered sugar? Or cane sugar?

    Michelle, I just made this bread again and I was wondering if cutting back on the sugar would alter the finished product. I did reduce the 1 cup amount to 3/4 cup but do you think it could be reduced to 2/3 cup successfully? We love this recipe but my husband needs to watch his sugar intake. Thank you for always respondingredients so quickly.

      Hello Catherine, I haven’t tried it with less sugar but it sounds like it will be fine you can add an extra tablespoon of ground flax seed if you like though.
