Healthy Carrot Bread

Yum

The New Year is around the corner and it's time to start thinking of healthy food again after indulging over the Christmas holidays these past few weeks.  After eating all the rich holiday foods and delicious Christmas baked goods who wants to eat just a pile of carrots.  This Healthy Carrot Bread is a great compromise because it satisfies that sweet tooth but is full of healthy ingredients like whole wheat flour, carrots, applesauce and walnuts.  So whip up a this quick and easy bread for breakfast or snack time and start to feel good about eating sweet treats again. 

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts
    (to toast walnuts, bake in oven for 5 minutes at 350 degrees)





Wet Ingredients
  • 1 cup sugar (to lower the sugar content, I did use half a cup baking splenda and half a cup regular sugar)
  • 3/4 cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Mix together wet ingredients with a whisk.

Dry ingredients:
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • pinch of salt

 Directions:
 

Mix all ingredients together well with a mixing spoon.





Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly coat loaf pan with vegetable spray and then dust with flour.  Pour into pan and bake for 50 minutes or until done.
Slice and serve.  Enjoy the bread for breakfast, as a snack or even with a meal.
