Servings 1 8x4 Loaf


  • 2 Mixing Bowls
  • 1 Spatula
  • Measuring Cups and Spoons
  • Loaf Pan
  • Parchment Paper


  • 2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher Salt Use a little less if using fine grain salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 teaspoon Ginger
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Allspice
  • ½ teaspoon Nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon Clove
  • ½ Cup Granulated Sugar
  • ¼ Cup Molasses
  • ½ Cup Plain, Unsweetened Plant Based Yogurt I like So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt
  • Cup Canola Oil
  • Cup Plant Milk I used So Delicious Plain Coconut Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla

For the Streusel

  • 2 tablespoon Plant Based Butter I used Earth Balance
  • 2 tablespoon Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tablespoon Whole Wheat Flour
  • ½ Cup Rolled Oats
  • ½ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • Pinch Kosher Salt


  • Preheat oven to 350*. Prepare an 8x4 loaf pan by greasing it with coconut oil or other oil and laying a parchment sling across the bottom of the pan for easy removal. See photos for reference.

Make the Streusel

  • Combine all streusel ingredients in a medium bowl. Work together with your hands until everything is well combined and sticks together. Set aside.

For the Gingerbread

  • In a large bowl, combine sugar, molasses, oil, yogurt, plant milk and vanilla with a whisk.
  • Fit a mesh sifter on top of the bowl with the wet ingredients and add into the sifter: whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and all of the spices.
  • Sift the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir with a spatula until just combined.
  • Scrape the batter into prepared 8x4 loaf pan, using the spatula to spread the batter into the corners of the pan.
  • Top the batter with all of the streusel, gently pressing the streusel into the batter.
  • Bake in a 350* oven for 55-60 minutes. Test doneness with a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf. It should come out clean.
  • Cool completely before removing from the pan and slicing. Enjoy!
