Healthy Morning Glory Quick Bread Recipe

My ideal morning starts with this sweet, healthy Morning Glory Bread. Serve it with coffee or tea for an afternoon snack or healthier dessert.


– 2 cups rolled oats* – 2 ripe bananas 1 cup mashed** – 2 large egg – 3 Tbsp avocado oil – 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup – 2 tsp pure vanilla extract – 1 tsp apple cider vinegar – 2 tsp baking powder – 1/2 tsp sea salt – 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon – 1 cup grated carrots about 1 large carrot – 1 cup grated apple about 1 large apple – 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut optional – ½ cup raw pecans or walnuts chopped – 2/3 cup raisin


Pre-heat the oven to 350°F and line a 9" x 5" loaf pan with parchment. If parchment paper is unavailable, spray the bread pan with cooking spray.

Step 1

Blend oats in a high-speed blender for 30 seconds to make flour. Mash bananas in a large bowl until creamy. 

Step 2

Whisk eggs, avocado oil, pure maple syrup, vanilla extract, and cider vinegar until combined.

Step 3

Mix oat flour, baking powder, sea salt, and ground cinnamon in a separate bowl. Mix the flour mixture with the wet ingredients until a thick muffin batter forms.

Step 4

After grating the carrots and apple, add the shredded coconut, raisins, and pecans. Mix everything so the goodies are evenly distributed in the muffin batter.

Step 5

Fill the loaf pan with batter and spread evenly. Top the batter with chopped pecans if desired.

Step 6

Cover the loaf pan with foil and bake 40 minutes. Bake the bread for 20–35 minutes without the foil until it tests clean and is golden brown.

Step 7

Baked goods are done at 190–200°F. Insert a digital thermometer into the bread's centre and wait until the numbers stop moving for an accurate reading. If temperature requires, bake longer.
