This bread was born in a late night baking incident where I didn’t have all of the ingredients for a fabulous-looking loaf of Vegan Blueberry Zucchini Bread by my favorite blogger, Emile over at Emilie Eats Eats.
See, I thought I had frozen zucchini in my freezer that I could thaw and use in this loaf. But, much to my dismay, I couldn’t find any in there! But, what I did see in my fridge were some strawberries that were about to go bad. I thought to myself: “Could I just use finely sliced and mashed strawberries INSTEAD of zucchini?!” This, my dear friends, is how the masterpiece was born.

Triple Berry Bread
- 3 tbsp flaxseed meal (plus 8 tbsp water)
- 2 cups white whole wheat flour *
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cup finely diced strawberries
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or white sugar)
- 1/2 cup plant-based milk **
- 2 tbsp sunflower oil (or any light, neutral oil)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup berries ***
Preheat over to 350F and grease a 9x5 loaf pan with cooking spray (or line with parchment paper, if preferred).
Mix flaxseed and water in a medium-sized bowl and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In the medium sized bowl with the flaxseed mixture, add diced strawberries, coconut sugar, plant-based milk, oil, vanilla extract, and berries. Whisk till combined.
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredient mixture and stir until just combined. Pour into prepared loaf pan.
Bake for about 50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when stuck into the center. This loaf is best if allowed to cool for at least 20 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
*You can sub white whole wheat flour with half whole wheat flour and half white flour
**I used cashew milk in this recipe, but you can use any plant-based milk you choose (ie. Almond, hemp, soy, etc.)
*** I used a frozen mixture of blueberries and blackberries.
