  4. In a large bowl, combine chickpea mixture, flax mixture, breadcrumbs, almond milk, salt, pepper, and garlic powder using your hands or a spatula.
  5. Pour mixture into lined loaf pan. Press mixture down firmly and evenly.
  6. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.

For the Glaze:

  1. Combine tomato paste, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, vegan Worcestershire sauce, and soy sauce. Set aside.
  2. Remove loaf from oven after 30 minutes. Spread glaze over the top. Bake an additional 25 minutes.
  3. Cool in pan for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from pan by gently lifting the sides of the parchment paper, slice, and serve.
