{GF & Vegan Blueberry Oat Bread}

As an update, I am allowed to follow my regular diet now and how sweet it is to be eating more "normal" again.  I will do my best to never complain about my delicious diet ever again! Since then I have had such fun creating recipes, whenever wedding planning and work permit.  I created this moist loaf a bit ago and forgot to share it with you, so here it is! Try the rescipe or use it as a guide and  experiement.  Let me know how yours turns out! Any other baking risk takers out there? It's a favorite past time of mine to take a few recipes I find and combine their ideas or even to just gather some favorite ingredients from my pantry, pile them onto my little kitchen table and start playing.  I'm not a rule follower, nor an "in the lines" type of artist... 

Here's the steps for my yummy treat.  I loved using Almond and Coconut Flour in this; they are both full of protein and fiber and produce a yummy moistness to the treat.

P.S.  I always get my Almond Meal/Flour from Trader Joes.It's less than half the cost anywhere else!

{GF & Vegan Blueberry Oat Bread}

1/2 C Almond Meal/Flour
1/2 C Brown Rice Flour
1/4 C Coconut Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Sea Salt

1/4 C Grapeseed Oil
1/3 C Agave Syrup
1/3 C Unsweetend Vanilla Almond Milk
1/2 C Water or Almond Milk
1 tsp Vanilla
1/4 tsp Xanthum Gum

1 C GF Oats
1 tbsp Chia Seeds

Fresh or Frozen Organic Blueberries

Mix your dry and wet separately, then slowly pour the wet into the dry until well blended.  After this, gently mix in the Xanthum Gum.  Be careful not to overmix.  Xanthum Gum helps the batter rise, waht gluten usually does in baked goods.  The only downfall is that it can make your batter gummy, so avoid over stirring it.  Next fold in the Oats and Chia, then pour prepared batter into a greased loaf pan.  If you are using fresh blueberries you can fold them in with the Oats and Chia.  If you are using frozen berries, wait and carefully place them (with the help of a spoon) into the prepared batter in the loaf pan.  Otherwise the frozen berries will dye the loaf blue!  Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until a butter knife comes out clean from the center.  This tends to vary from oven to oven, I have found.   Let it cool and then slice and serve with a delicious buttery spread.
