Yummy Carrot Nut Bread – And It’s Gluten Free!

By Nutrisavvy

I found a great recipe for zucchini bread which I plan to make someday. But since I was all out of the long green squash and yet loaded with carrots, I decided to make a Carrot Nut Bread instead. And oh, how delicious it was! I used Pamela’s Baking/Pancake Mix for the flour and it rose into a perfect bread, golden and nutty on top and deliciously dense with a whole lot of carrot and natural sweetness (without a lot of refined sugar).

Here is the recipe. Enjoy!

Carrot Nut Bread – Not too Sweet, But a Whole Lot of Yumminess (and great texture, too)!

  • 1/4 cup of oil
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 packets of Stevia
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups of shredded carrots
  • 2 cups of Pamela’s baking/pancake mix
  • 1/2 cup of coconut flakes, unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup of chopped pecans (or walnuts)
  • 1/2  - 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 2.5 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a loaf pan. Cream Smart Balance with brown sugar and Stevia. Add in 2 eggs and vanilla and blend well. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients (Pamela’s baking mix, coconut, cinnamon and nutmeg). Mix dry ingredients into wet mixture. Finally fold in carrots and pecans. Fold into loaf pan, draw a line down the center and add 2-3 little dabs of Smart Balance Light or a drizzle of milk (I use almond milk). Bake for about 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

It’s Mmmm- Good and with only 5 grams of sugar (paired with 5 grams of protein/fiber combined) and wholesome ingredients, it’s a Nutri-Savvy “Better-for-You” Treat. Here are the Nutritional Facts:
