Vegan Blueberry Pineapple Bread

Ingredients For Vegan, Gluten-Free Blueberry Pineapple Bread

  • Crushed Pineapple, Undrained: Adds natural sweetness and moisture to the bread, infusing it with a tropical flavor while keeping it delightfully moist.
  • Apple Sauce: Acts as a binder and provides additional moisture, replacing eggs in vegan baking. It also contributes a subtle fruity sweetness that complements the pineapple.
  • Coconut Oil: Brings a light tropical aroma and helps to ensure the bread remains tender and moist. It’s a healthier fat alternative that enriches the flavor.
  • Vanilla: Enhances the overall sweetness and depth of the bread, adding a classic, warm aroma that pairs beautifully with the fruit components.
  • Golden Flaxseeds, Ground: Used as an egg substitute, ground flaxseeds add omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. When mixed with water, they help bind the ingredients, adding to the bread’s structure.
  • Brown Rice Flour: Provides the gluten-free base, offering a mild, nutty flavor and a hearty texture that complements the softness of the other ingredients.
  • Almond Flour: Adds richness and a slightly sweet, nutty flavor, while also contributing to a moist, tender crumb.
  • Cane Sugar: Sweetens the bread naturally, enhancing the flavors of the pineapple and blueberries without overpowering them.
  • Baking Powder: A leavening agent that helps the bread rise and become light and fluffy.
  • Salt: Balances the sweetness of the fruit and sugar, sharpening the overall flavor profile.
  • Blueberries: Offer bursts of sweet-tart flavor and antioxidant benefits, adding beautiful pops of color and texture throughout the bread.

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.
