With whole grains from white whole-wheat flour, and no refined sugar, this bread is hearty and healthy. It’s easy to make it dairy free, too, just by using non-dairy milk. Make it as is, or swap the spices, add different nuts, or toss in some chocolate chips.

Flax eggs work as a binder and give body to this fully plant-based bread. Applesauce, maple syrup, and cinnamon all add sweetness, and it has whole wheat flour, so each slice gives you 6 grams of filling fiber

A scoop of protein powder and a sugar-free syrup make this whole-grain bread higher in protein and lower in sugar than many other loaves. Use regular maple syrup instead and swap gluten-free flour for the whole wheat, if you prefer. Feel free to toss in chopped nuts, shaved dark chocolate, or both. The recipe calls for snickerdoodle-flavored protein powder; if you have vanilla, use that instead, and toss in a teaspoon of cinnamon.
