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!)
Note – there are a lot of ingredients that go into this, but it is SO worth it.
- 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
- Preheat oven to 375F and grease a loaf pan with coconut oil.
- Steep tea in boiling water for 7-8 minutes. Once steeped, mix in dried blueberries, allow to soak for at least 5 minutes.
- Take dried blueberries out of tea, reserving the tea for later use. Mix flax meal with 6 tablespoons of tea.
- Combine dried blueberries, applesauce, flax mixture, vanilla extract, banana, coconut oil, carrot, zucchini, grated apple, diced apple and coconut flakes.
- In a separate bowl, combine flour, coconut sugar, cinnamon, salt, Vega Smoothie, baking powder and baking soda.
- Combine flour mixture with apple mixture adding in tea for more moisture as needed.
- Pour batter into loaf pan and top with coconut flakes and fresh blueberries.
- 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!
