This cinnamon quick bread recipe is simple to make. It's so moist and tender it practically melts in your mouth. Serve it warm for a sweet, delicious breakfast.
I love this gluten-free cinnamon quick bread. This is a new recipe. I incorporate my cinnamon baking chips in this quick bread for a twist on traditional cinnamon swirl quick bread. It's perfect for an easy everyday breakfast or for a special holiday. I plan to make this recipe for our Christmas morning breakfast this year. Whenever you decide to make it, it won't last long. Keep reading and find out how easy this gluten-free quick bread is to make.
Gluten-free flour blend - I make my own flour blend. Try it HERE. I also recommend Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 baking flour, King Arthur Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour, or Krusteaz Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour (paid Amazon links).
Xanthan Gum - This ingredient is necessary for gluten-free baking. It’s what imitates gluten. It helps hold gluten-free baked goods together so they rise and take shape. Make sure to check the ingredients in your flour blend. Some contain xanthan gum and some do not. You will need to purchase Xanthan Gum and add it separately to this recipe if your blend does not include it. If using my flour blend you will need to add this to your dry ingredients.
Dairy-free milk - I use planet oat unsweetened original oat milk. I tried rice milk at first, but it was not as creamy, and the batter did not mix up well. The consistency in oat milk is better. I have not tried almond milk, or cashew milk because of nut allergies.
Dairy-free butter - My favorite is Earth Balance Soy-Free. It acts just like regular butter in recipes. I also use Spectrum Organic Shortening as a dairy-free substitute for butter. It’s plant-based, made from palm oil, and is great for dairy-free baking.
Cinnamon Baking Chips - Grab the recipe HERE.
Raisins - Add in raisins or other dried fruits such as dried cranberries.
Nuts - If you are able, try mixing in nuts such as almonds, pecans or walnuts.
Once your bread is cool, slice it. Wrap the slices in plastic wrap then place them in a freezer-safe storage bag. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to serve, thaw your bread in the refrigerator overnight. Remove it from the refrigerator 10-15 minutes before serving.
