  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • 12 ounces Irish stout beer


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Into a glass measuring cup, add unsweetened almond milk and lemon juice. Set aside. The milk will thicken and curdle slightly as it stands; this is normal.
  • Into a medium-size mixing bowl, add whole wheat flour, rolled oats, dark brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and sea salt. Stir to combine the dry ingredients.
  • Into a large mixing bowl, add almond milk/lemon juice mixture, melted butter, vanilla bean paste, and Irish stout beer. Stir gently to combine.
  • In the large mixing bowl, stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until fully incorporated. The batter will be thin.
  • Into a prepared 9" x 5" loaf pan, pour all the batter.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 35 minutes.
  • Then, without removing the bread from the oven, reduce the temperature to 325 degrees F.
  • Continue baking for an additional 35 minutes.
  • Leaving the bread in the oven, turn off the heat completely and open the oven door. Allow the bread to cool in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • Remove bread from the oven then turn out onto a wire rack.
  • Serve warm or room temperature.
