This is a twist on the standard ‘Morning Glory’ recipe! My friend Morgan and I decided we would put our own spin on a couple of loaves and see what we could come up with! Here is what we ended up with (and let me tell you – WAY too good!)

Ohhhh ya!
Ohhhh ya!

Note – there are a lot of ingredients that go into this, but it is SO worth it.

Ingredients

Loaf:

  • 2 tsp loose blueberry Tea (we used Blueberry Jam from DAVIDsTEA)
  • 1 cup Boiling Water
  • 1/3 cup Dried Blueberries
  • 2 tbsp Flax Meal
  • ½ cup Apple Sauce
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Banana, mashed
  • ¼ cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 cup Grated Carrot
  • 1/2 cups Grated Zucchini
  • 1 Green Apple, grated
  • 1 Red Apple, diced
  • ¼ cup Coconut Flakes
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Gluten Free Flour (can sub regular flour if you’d like)
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Sugar
  • ¾ tsp each Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 2 Scoops Natural Vega Energizing Smoothie
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Flakes
  • ¼ cup Fresh Blueberries

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F and grease a loaf pan with coconut oil.
  2. Steep tea in boiling water for 7-8 minutes. Once steeped, mix in dried blueberries, allow to soak for at least 5 minutes.
  3. Take dried blueberries out of tea, reserving the tea for later use. Mix flax meal with 6 tablespoons of tea.
  4. Combine dried blueberries, applesauce, flax mixture, vanilla extract, banana, coconut oil, carrot, zucchini, grated apple, diced apple and coconut flakes.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine flour, coconut sugar, cinnamon, salt, Vega Smoothie, baking powder and baking soda.
  6. Combine flour mixture with apple mixture adding in tea for more moisture as needed.
  7. Pour batter into loaf pan and top with coconut flakes and fresh blueberries.
  8. Bake at 45 minutes to an hour or until firm. Let cool completely before eating.

We made a second kind (Dirty Chai and Coffee Morning Glory) that is posted on Morgans blog Shupe’s Soups ! If you’re a coffee lover, or a chai lover, OR if you just like to eat, I would definitely check out the Chai coffee version of this recipe. The two have a very similar base and just a few different ingredients, so if you’re making one, you might as well make both 🙂

Let me know what you think if you test it out!
