Moist, flavorful pineapple nut bread. A delicious vegan, snack bread full of omega fats. This healthy bread is made with flax and coconut oil.
I was wandering through Grandma Cash’s collection of recipes last night and found this recipe.
Of course I couldn’t leave it alone, so it’s adapted from hers. I added a bit of whole wheat flour for texture, and replaced the eggs with flax (I’m low on eggs at the moment).
I also used coconut oil instead of the melted shortening this original recipe called for.
When it was all done I had a delicious vegan bread recipe.
This quick bread recipe is moist, slightly sweet and full of delicious pineapple flavor. No butter or other condiment is needed to dress it up. We have been eating this just plain, with our coffee. Yummy vegan recipe.
I can’t tell this bread is egg free. Flax really is a great egg replacement. I have never used flax to replace eggs totally in a recipe. It worked really well.
I followed the flax meal package directions for replacing eggs. For one egg equivalent; add one Tablespoon flax meal and three Tablespoons water. I put the flax meal and water together and let them sit a few moments.
I assembled the other wet ingredients and then added it in. Worked great. If you wish to use an egg, eliminate the flax and three tablespoons water.
The coconut oil adds a really nice flavor to all baked goods, in my opinion. If you want to use butter instead, just use a one to one ratio.
I really, really hope you do NOT use shortening or Wesson oil( my Grandma Cash’s recipe always call for one of these, horrible for you oils!).
At our house the fats have to be a good quality or I ruthlessly eliminate them from my recipes. Unnecessary bad, hydrogenated trans fats can really mess up your health.

Pineapple Nut Bread Recipe Notes:
The recipe requires one 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. Or you can make it in mini pans for very cute small loaves. They make great gifts.
This pretty golden loaf baked perfectly in an hour in my oven. The directions say to let this quick bread sit overnight to set up because it is so moist. We did let it sit since I didn’t get it made till 10:30 at night.
So I can’t say what will happen if you cut this pineapple bread fresh out of the oven. My guess is it will be pretty squishy (but still delicious). This is an easy bread to make with a wonderful flavor and texture.
Be SURE to cool it completely at the very least before cutting into it.
Take it to your next family gathering or party. If you cut the slices in half a loaf will give you 24 party size servings.
