Deliciously Healthy Orange Bread: soft ‘n moist healthy orange bread made with healthy, whole ingredients. Bursting with bright orange flavor.



Dry Ingredients

  • 2 ¼ cups oat flour
  • ½ cup finely ground, blanched almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients

  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup non-dairy milk
  • ¼ cup fresh orange juice
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup

Optional Glaze


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch loaf pan with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together all the dry ingredients: oat flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. Add water and milk to a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 10-second increments until just warm. This will prevent the melted coconut oil from solidifying once mixed with these liquids.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients: water, milk, orange juice, orange zest, oil, sugar, and maple syrup. Whisk until well incorporated.
  5. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Whisk until just incorporated, making sure no flour patches remain.
  6. Pour batter evenly into prepared pan. Using a rubber spatula, smooth batter into an even layer. Bake for 45-55 minutes. Mine took 50 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the center to check for doneness—once it comes out clean with just a few moist bits (no wet batter!), it’s done.
  7. Allow to cool on a cooling rack for 1 hour. Then, lift out of pan, transferring loaf along with parchment paper directly onto the cooling rack. Optionally, in a small bowl, whisk together Glaze ingredients until thickened: confectioners’ sugar and orange juice. Drizzle loaf. Allow to finish cooling for 1-2 hours. Slice loaf into 12 slices. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.




Storing Instructions: Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week in the refrigerator, or in a cool, dark environment. Glaze when ready to eat, or day of.

Freezing Instructions: Store in an airtight container or bag, unglazed, in the freezer for up to 1-2 months. Allow to thaw for about 30 minutes at room temperature before enjoying. Or, heat in the microwave in 15-second increments until just warm.

*Powdered sugar substitutes: Swerve is a good sugar-free, low carb substitute. You can also grind the sweetener of your choice, such as Xylitol, in a coffee grinder or small blender until you get a powder. Since Swerve is a bit drier, use about 2 ½ teaspoons orange juice to make the glaze.

*You can also add more powdered sugar if you’d like a thicker glaze.
