It is an old recipe of mine that I have improved, so there is no more complicated coconut cream glaze or bumps on top. The loaf came out with a perfect texture and a touch of molasses that are not overpowering ginger. In place of the glaze, I used just maple syrup, which you can sprinkle with one of your favourite spices like nutmeg, cinnamon or ginger.

You see?! The loaf is shining with pure goodness right at you. Also try my healthy gingerbread cookies and healthy gingerbread fudge. Happy Holidays baking!

  1. Oh Olena this looks so good. I’m off tomorrow and I have all the ingredients so I’ll make it. I’m going to try it with flax eggs though 🙂 I’ll let you know how it turns out!

  2. amazing! I was skeptical at first being a sugar junkie but this turned out perfectly. The icing was a little runny though any tips for thickening up?

    1. Not really except using good quality coconut milk or pouring on a cooled off loaf.
      You know, I retested this recipe today and changed it, so there will be no more icing just maple syrup on top. Worked really well, try that.
      New readers – I left this comment up for Curry to answer her question. There is no more coconut glaze, you are not missing anything.:)
