Vegan and gluten-free Cinnamon Raisin Bread by Lauren Kirchmaier that’s refined sugar-free and packed with raisins and texture. Made extra cinnamon-y with a secret ingredient! It’s easy to make and only takes 1-bowl (and plenty of cinnamon and raisins.) This Gluten-Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread is a little less table bread and a lot more dense bakery-style bread. It’s hearty, naturally sweet, and packed with protein and fiber. The combination of ground cinnamon and cinnamon kombucha adds the perfect amount of spice. It’s hearty enough to serve for breakfast or nutritious snack but sweet enough to also function as a healthful dessert. For even more texture, try adding walnuts or almonds when folding in the raisins. Serve your slices of gluten-free cinnamon raisin bread warm with a big smear of almond butter slathered on top.
