The second summer starts turning into fall and the air gets crisp I start thinking about turning on my oven and baking. One of my favorite things to bake are quick breads. I love them because there are a never ending variety to try, they are easy to make and you can eat them for breakfast, as a snack or for dessert. They also make yummy homemade gifts for the holidays. What’s not to love about quick breads?!

Well, actually some quick breads are loaded with way too much sugar and empty calories, so today I’ve collected several healthy quick bread recipes from the Healthy Seasonal Recipes archives, as well as a few of our food blogging buddies.

If you don’t know what a “quick” bread is compared to regular bread, lemme back up a bit and explain: quick bread is leavened by either baking powder and or baking soda. Other breads are leavened by yeast which needs a bit of time to get going and rise, hence quick breads are… well… quicker. Quick breads actually encompass a whole category of baked goods that are leavened with “chemical” leaveners, that includes bundts, muffins etc, but today I am focusing just on Healthy Quick Bread Loafs.

So whether you’re looking for a low carb recipe, you are gluten free, whole wheat all the way or paleo is your thing… this collection has you covered. So turn on your oven and get baking!

Tips for Healthy Quick Bread Baking Success

Measure Your Ingredients Accurately and Properly

  • Use liquid measuring cups for the wet ingredients and dry measuring cups for the dry.
  • When measuring your flour it’s better to stir it lightly with a spoon first and then spoon it into your measuring cup before leveling it off. It makes a big different believe me!

Don’t Over-Mix

  • Always add the wet into the dry ingredients,
  • Stir just until the ingredients are moistened. This way you don’t end up with a loaf that is dense enough to be used as a doorstop.

Check For Doneness

  • Check 10-15 minutes early. But not so many times that you let all the hot air out of the oven or deflate the bread before the structure is set up. 
  • The loaf is done if a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cool It

  • Cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes (or whatever the recipe recommends).
  • Then cool on a wire rack.
  • It’s best to let the loaf cool completely before trying to slice it, so that it doesn’t fall apart. I know, I know… this part is crazy hard to do.
