Have you ever tasted a wonderful recipe when you traveled far away from home? And did you try re-creating the recipe based on what you remembered? Well that’s what happened to me, after I tasted the Mango Bread in Maui, a few years back. It was an all day road trip to Hana and we stopped at several road side snack shops on our way to taste the local pineapples, toasted coconuts and mangoes. But the one thing that stayed in my mind was Mango Bread.
Sure, there is nothing special about bread, but you have got to taste it to believe how heavenly it can be. It was like I had never tasted a bread that is fluffier yet richer in taste and flavor. I stopped at the same place on my way back to ask them about the ingredients, but they were all gone by that time (No surprise there). Since then I said to myself, I am not giving up until I perfect this recipe in my own vegan style.
As you might have noticed from my recipes, a replacement for eggs is not hard to find. I have tried Aquafaba in the past with good success. For today’s recipe I have used Flax seed meal and it turned out even better than Aquafaba. Apart from the fluffy texture it provides, flax seeds come with immense health benefits with zero cholesterol. Check my ingredient list to find out the procedure for using flax meal as an egg replacement.
A tropical flavored bread with no cholesterol or high fructose corn syrup. How much better can it get? Here’s the recipe, but do not forget to share this with your friends. Mark my Facebook Page for quick reference or better yet, pin my recipe on Pinterest. I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as I did.
