I don't know why it took me so long to make this Iced Blueberry Protein Loaf! This yummy loaf is bursting with blueberries and has a hint of buttery almond flavor. It's gluten-free, dairy-free, and easily made vegan using egg replacer. Best of all, this blueberry protein bread is smothered in sweet sugar-free icing! Perfect for a protein-boosted breakfast or afternoon snack. 

Did you know? Just one cup of blueberries contains 36% of your daily vitamin K, a nutrient necessary for blood clotting, wound healing and bone health (source).

Protein recommendations

For this Iced Blueberry Protein Loaf, I used LIV Body Lean Vegan Protein in Blueberry Cobbler. Such a wonderful flavor in this! LIV Body protein is highly bioavailable with a solid amino acid profile, and it's free of artificial ingredients. You can use my code "NOEXCUSES" for 20% off everything on the LIV Body website!

You should be able to use another pea protein or vegan protein blend, however, I would not recommend trying whey or collagen in this recipe. Their baking properties are too different.

Flour recommendations

I used gluten-free baking flour for a nice tender loaf. You can also use organic oat flour, brown rice, cassava flour, spelt flour, white whole wheat flour, or all-purpose flour. I have success substituting up to half a cup of the flour for one-quarter cup of coconut flour, but this yields a less fluffy, more dense bread.

Sweetener recommendations

To sweeten this Iced Blueberry Protein Loaf, I used my favorite organic stevia blend that's twice as sweet as sugar with no bitter aftertaste. Feel free to substitute baking stevia, granulated erythritol, or monk fruit sweetener if that's what you prefer. Keep in mind, you may need up to twice as much if using a sweetener that measures 1:1 like sugar. If using liquid stevia, please refer to the brand-specific conversion chart.

Other ingredients

Since I am not vegan, I used egg whites in this recipe for added protein. If you need this vegan and egg-free, just use a vegan egg replacer!

I also used plain yogurt as a moisturizer, along with unsweetened applesauce and vegan buttery spread. The buttery spread can be swapped for semi-solid coconut oil if you prefer. Or, feel free to use nonfat plain Greek yogurt and unsalted butter if you don't need dairy-free. 

Of course, you'll need some fresh or frozen blueberries for this recipe! The pure vanilla and almond extracts are optional, but add a lovely flavor.

Sugar-free icing

For the sugar free icing, I combined powdered monk fruit sweetener, unsweetened almond milk, vegan buttery spread, and pure vanilla extract. This recipe will work any powdered sweetener, any type of milk, and semi-solid coconut oil (melted) in place of the buttery spread.

Healthier Beef Nachos (Dairy Free)

May 31, 2023

Sometimes you just get a craving for nachos! I've seen bell pepper nachos floating around the internet, and decided to make my own Healthier Beef Nachos that are dairy-free, gluten-free, macro-friendly and less inflammatory than your traditional nachos. They've got all the goods: tortilla chips, taco beef, tomatoes, jalapeños, olives, dairy-free cheese, guacamole, and sour cream (dairy-free Greek yogurt). I used baked tortilla chips and lean ground beef to lower the fat, and added some bell peppers to up the veggies! Swap the beef for meatless crumbles if you need a vegan version.
