This Rum Raisin Bread is the sort of recipe that feels decadent and festive enough to make for holiday mornings but is also easy enough to whip up on a weekday. Made with bread flour, flaxseed, and warming spices, this vegan bread is incredibly fluffy and moist. it also happens to be refined sugar-free, dairy-free, and can be made nut-free if you use soy or oat milk.
You can toast up slices of freshly baked Rum Raisin bread or wrap it up for a holiday gift! There's no wrong time to enjoy this delicious homemade bread.
To be honest, I had to test this recipe more times than I'd like to get it perfect. It was either way too moist or too dry before I landed on this perfect recipe that is tender, chewy and soft. all it needs is a pat of butter or a smear of cream cheese to make a totally satisfying breakfast.
The flavors in the bread of cinnamon, allspice, and raisins are inspired by my Jamaican roots. A bit of rum extract always tastes like the islands to me.
Find the following ingredients to make this dairy-free bread recipe:
If you don't eat gluten, you can still enjoy this vegan bread recipe! Simply swap the flour with a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend. I recommend Bob's Red Mill's flour for this.
If you find that the gluten-free bread dough is too runny, add more flour, ¼ cup at a time, until it's thick.
You can even make this bread dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free AND nut-free! Simply use a nut-free milk such as soy or oat milk. In addition, make sure your vegan butter is not made with coconut. Other than tat, the ingredients are naturally free of nuts and other allergens.

LOVE THIS RECIPE?
LET US KNOW!
This cinnamon raisin bread is to die for! Seriously, I made a double batch the first time baking it and I'm so glad I did. This is delicious and if I could give it 10 stars I would!!
Thank you for sharing this recipe.
I'm wondering what size loaf pan you used?
Hi! I usually use a 8" x 4 1/2" x 2 3/4 pan!
Hi. I made this for the 1st time today, but I used all purpose unbleached flour as I didn't have artisan flour. I didn't make any other changes, followed the recipe to the letter, but it was more 'stiff' than spreadable. Also, once the time was up, my bread stayed the size as it went in the pan. It did not rise at all. The top was rather hard and crunchy (I didn't over-bake it) but the centre was more 'bread' like. Otherwise, it smelled delicious while baking and was tasty. I didn't use a mixer, but did it by hand. Is this how it should be? Thanks as I want to try again.
Hi Donna! Yes, it definitely is more 'crunchy' on the outside and 'bread-like' on the inside, so your results were just right! Also, it usually doesn't rise that much with this specific recipe. I'm glad that you enjoyed it! 🙂
Really enjoyed this and love that is it not too sweet! I made with whole wheat flour 🙂 thank you for posting and sharing ! It’s definitely a nice alternative when your craving a cinnamon roll 😀
Hi Nicole! I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed this Bread! It's definitely a favorite in our house! 🙂

I love your healthy twist on cinnamon raisin bread . This bread had bold flavor and fluffy and soft. I had mine with a cup of herbal tea and it was a perfect breakfast. Thanks for such a great recipe.
Is there anything more comforting than a slice of cinnamon raisin bread for breakfast with tea? I remember is so fondly as a child! I love this version and am totally sharing it with my bestie!
Oh yum! I imagine a slice of this cinnamon raisin bread, toasted, and slathered with homemade jam. Pure heaven!
This cinnamon raisin bread looks so good! The spices are perfect, I can see this making an excellent gift over the holidays! My sister is vegan so I know she will just love this!
Raisin bread is my favourite for a late breakfast with a cup of tea, but like you I never thought to make my own! I will be making this, this week!
No way this is vegan!! I am always stumped on what to make for my vegan students, and this might just be the solution. This sounds so tasty 🙂
I made this loaf for holiday breakfast - and because it keeps so well, I was able to make it well in advance! Such a wonderful bread, so much delicious cinnamon flavor, and can't wait to make it again!
I love finding healthy versions of foods my family loves. I need to make this for my son and husband would love having something a bit sweet in the morning. Great post!
