CINNAMON RAISIN BREAD {GLUTEN-FREE & DAIRY-FREE} In this delicious recipe, raisins along with cinnamon are the star ingredients. The raisins bring bursts of flavor while also offering healing properties. We tend to overlook raisins as a healing food. But don’t let their humble status fool you. Raisins are more powerful for your health than goji berries! Cinnamon is another healing food that will also fill your home with its wonderful fragrance as the Cinnamon Raisin bread bakes. Enjoy this bread alone or toast it up and try spreading a little raw honey or coconut oil on top for an extra treat.

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

3 tbsp ground flaxseeds + 1/2 cup water
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 3/4 cups water
3 cups gluten-free oat flour
3/4 cup millet flour
1 1/2 cups tapioca starch
1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins


1 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 t vanilla essence
2 tbsp maple syrup

Preheat oven to 350F/180C. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.

Mix together the ground flaxseeds and water. Set aside for 5 minutes, until thickened.

Add the flaxseeds to a medium-sized mixing bowl together with the applesauce, maple syrup, and water. Whisk until uniform.

Add the oat flour, millet flour, tapioca starch, baking powder, and cinnamon to the wet ingredients and stir until evenly mixed. Stir in the raisins until evenly dispersed in the batter, then set the batter aside for 15 minutes.

Pour the batter into a loaf pan, being careful not to lose any of the air bubbles that have formed in the batter. Bake for 50-60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Remove from oven and carefully tip out of the loaf pan right away. Remove the parchment paper and place on a wire rack until it has completely cooled. Make glaze and pour over loaf. Leave to set. Slice and serve.
