Easy Vegan Strawberry Sweet Quick Bread (with real Strawberries)

Jump to recipe button

 

This easy vegan strawberry sweet quick bread is inspired by my dairy-free strawberry sweet quick bread. The difference is instead of using vegan food coloring I decided to use real strawberries.

After getting some strawberries, I use them right away to make this vegan strawberry sweet quick bread. But you know it isn’t successful so I have to make several trials before coming out with this one.

While they all have this perfect smell while baking in the oven, the others came out to be dense. 

If you are interested in my strawberry-flavored sweet quick bread, you can check the recipe here.

I used natural brown cane sugar and didn’t use flax egg again just so that it would not affect the color of my sweet quick bread. But flax egg is also good it does not only acts as a binder it also has benefits.

While this recipe uses canola oil, you can also opt for unsweetened applesauce or vegan butter. Adding chocolate chips is optional and you can just focus on adding more strawberries in this recipe.

This strawberry sweet quick bread does not need any frosting or glaze but if you would like to add the glaze on top it adds extra sweetness and compliments the bread.

I like a sweet quick bread recipe because just like its name, it’s pretty quick to make and enjoy. It’s perfect with your cup of tea or coffee and adding real fruits is another way to enjoy vegan bread. Enjoying every bite after my morning run or yoga.

For the strawberries, you can either chop them or use your equipment like an immersion blender or food processor. I tried both versions: puree and chop strawberries.

You can set aside some strawberries to add to your glaze which is optional, now that’s a lot of strawberries.

In making this recipe be sure not to overmix the batter to avoid the bread being dense which happened to me before and so I have to try and try again. Just ensure there are no lumps of flour visible in the mixture.
