I’ve been meaning to play with making plant-based whole-food breads for a while, and when Joe said that he’d like cornbread and beans for dinner some time soon, I thought I’d try making a cornbread-style quinoa bread … and upped the challenge by making it sugar-free, too!
The sweetener? Roasted sweet potato puree.  Yep, just a roasted sweet potato that’s been whipped around in the food processor for a minute. 
Oh. My. Goodness. The taste and texture of this bread is nothing short of amazing. I never would have thought that quinoa could be a step-in substitute for cornmeal. 
This is seriously nommable.

Dry Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 large sweet potato roasted and pureed with skin
  • 6 tbsp water warm
  • 2 tbsp flax meal If you have a high-speed blender, you can blend up the whole grain to make the meal
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup soy milk Or other nondairy milk of your choice


The Basics

  • Preheat oven to 425° F.
  • Put a well-seasoned 10-12" cast iron skillet in the oven to heat up.

Prepare items that need to sit

  • Mix flax meal with water and set aside.
  • Mix nondairy milk with vinegar and set aside.

Prepare batter

  • Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk to thoroughly incorporate. Tip: Double, triple, or even quadruple this dry mix and store in a cool dry place. You'll always be ready to whip up a batch!
  • Make a well in the center of the dry mix.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the sweet potato puree, nondairy milk mixture, flax meal mixture and mix well.
  • Pour sweet potato mix into dry mix and stir until just moistened.

Bake it!

  • Pour batter into hot skillet and use flat edge of a spatula to smooth the top.
