Cinnamon Sugar Blueberry Banana Bread

By Heather Sheridan  ●  May 27, 2023

This bread is so moist and is set off with the crunchy sugary coating, perfect with a nice cuppa.

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F). Grease a 9x5x3” loaf pan with plant-based butter and coat it with coconut/granulated sugar combination (you do this like you would grease and flour a pan). Grease it first, then add about 2 tbsp sugar to the pan and move the pan side to side until the bottom and sides are coated with sugar. Do NOT substitute with cooking spray.
  2. Make your flax eggs by combining 2.5 tbsp water with 1 tbsp ground flax seed, mix and set aside for 5-8 minutes.
  3. Make your sour oat milk by adding 1 tsp lemon juice to 6 ½ tbsp oat milk.
  4. Cream butter and ⅓  cup combined sugar with a hand mixer. Set aside.
  5. Add bananas, flax eggs, sour oat milk, vanilla, salt, and baking soda to a blender and blend until smooth.
  6. Pour half the banana mixture into the plant-based butter mixture with 1 cup of spelt flour. Mix with a hand mixer until just blended, then add the remaining banana mixture and flour. Mix until just blended. Fold in blueberries. (Make sure that your frozen berries are not overly wet).
  7. Pour into your prepared pan (5”x 9”).
  8. Combine ⅛ cup coconut sugar with ⅛ cup granulated sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the batter.
  9. Bake for 45-50 minutes until a toothpick comes out with just a few crumbs. The edges will be a dark brown and there will be a crack down the center.
  10. Cool completely before removing the loaf from the pan.
