Oatmeal Walnut Chocolate Chip Quick Bread

Posted by trktos on 13-March-2011

Wanted something different for breakfast this morning … was planning on waffles but our waffle maker is having some issues, so I veganized this recipe instead (with some ideas from this one, too) … turned out pretty well, though the top was a little too crunchy for quick bread – crumbled a bit, when cut – but, as is, would be perfect for muffins.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 1/4 cup vegan margarine, softened (oil would probably work fine, too … this was supposed to be 3/4 cup but I messed up. glad I did!)
  • 1/2 cup mimic cream
  • 1 “egg” – 2 tbsp ground flax seed, 1/2 tbsp ener-g, 4 tbsp water, 1/2 tbsp oil, 1 tbsp soy lecithin granules (is it obvious I couldn’t decide what egg replacer to use?)
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar (brown sugar is a pain to measure so I just used 260 grams)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup whole oats
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup walnuts, chopped

Instructions:

  1. Mix ingredients for “egg” in a small bowl.
  2. In another bowl, microwave water, orange juice  and mimic cream (my “cream” was frozen, too).
  3. Add vanilla and oats to water/oj mixture.
  4. Mix softened margarine and brown sugar. Add to oat mix.
  5. In another bowl, mix remaining dry ingredients.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and parchment 2 8″ x4″ loaf pans.
  7. Fold thickened egg mixture into wet mixture.
  8. Combine wet and dry ingredients.
  9. Spoon into prepared pans and bake 50-60 minutes.

 

Notes:

  • Next time, I’ll add some orange zest, for a stronger orange flavor.
