This easy vegan gingerbread loaf scream Christmas, and it’s super easy-to-make. Tastes just like the Starbucks version but better.



2  cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 tbsp. ground ginger

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp. allspice

1/2 tsp nutmeg spice

1 cup applesauce

1/3 cup vegan or regular butter, then melted

1 cup brown sugar

2 egg replacements

1 tsp vanilla

6 tbsp. almond milk


1/2 cup icing sugar

12 tsp water


Preheat oven to 350F and line a bread tin with parchment paper and lightly grease with cooking oil spray.

Into a large bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, salt and spices.

In a medium-sized bowl add the applesauce and whisk in the melted butter, brown sugar, egg replacement, vanilla and almond milk. Whisk just till combined.

Add the flour mixture to the apple sauce mixture and stir with a wooden spoon to well combine.

Transfer batter to the baking tin and bake for 50-55 minutes.

While the loaf bakes, make the glaze by combining the icing sugar and water in a bowl.  Stir till combined.

Cool for 5 minutes in the bread tin and remove and cool completely on the wire rack.  Serve with vegan butter or drizzle whole loaf or each piece individually with the glaze!


You can use a regular egg if needed. It will cook the same.

NOTE:  use as many or as little spices as you like.  The more the better, in my opinion!
