Healthy Oatmeal Gingerbread Loaf

The most delicious cloud soft and moist ginger loaf that is the perfect healthy christmas dessert

If you’re looking for the best, spicy christmas loaf to make this festive season- look no further. This one here is always a crowd pleaser, and no one would even believe that it is made out of oats!

I know, i know- it’s not a chocolate recipe but wow is it good! It reminds me of a gingerbread man in loaf form, that is soft and fluffy. Enjoy as is, or smear your favourite nut butter on-top!

My personal favourite is adding a dash of cinnamon, with a quick smear of almond butter! It is honestly so heavenly and so easy to make!

This is the perfect christmas breakfast, with hints of ginger and cinnamon. Warm, light and fluffy, this paired with a hot cup of cocoa is honestly the most heavenly combination. i have always love the idea of a gingerbread loaf and love the spicy festive flavours. You should honestly try this gingerbread recipe next time you decide to have company, people honestly go crazy for it and can’t believe the ingredients that it is made from! I personally love mine as in, but some prefer it toasted with a little almond butter smeared on-top.

I personally love enjoying these cold, straight out the fridge. But in colder months, some people may prefer them to be warmed up. Be sure to make the oats in a heatproof container if planning to heat up. If using yoghurt- do not heat up. Rather heat up your oats base first, then add the yoghurt on-top as a topping!

Oil Free Gingerbread Loaf

If you would like to make this recipe oil free, you may omit the oil and substitute it with 1/4 cup apple sauce. The texture will be slightly gummier than with the oil, but still perfectly delicious

How To Make The Gingerbread Loaf:

Milk of choice: Any milk of choice works equally as well!

Oil of choice: my favourites are olive oil and avocado oil!
