Quick breads make an easy, inexpensive and all-purpose holiday gift. The kind of gift everyone appreciates. Unlike fruitcake. There’s a fine line between fruitcake and some quick breads, but the following recipes should keep you from being re-gifted your own gift. I’ve included links to vegan and gluten-free recipes as well.
Savory Quick Breads
If all the sweet baked goods floating around during the holidays are too much, try a savory bread. They mostly aren’t completely sugar-free, but you won’t feel the need to make a dentist appointment after eating.

Vegan Quick Breads
Vegan breads are also good for the lactose-intolerant.
Gluten-Free Quick Breads
People who eat gluten-free shouldn’t be left out of the holiday baking and giving frenzy.
