I love recipes for desserts that incorporate fruits/vegetables so I was excited to give this Cinnamon Carrot loaf a try!  It ended up being very special – its officially the first recipe that Daniel (AKA official photographer/taste-tester) gave a perfect rating.  With 2.5 grams of fat, this bread is a perfect alternative to greasy carrot cake.  Best of all – it is FAST and very easy!  Click on ‘more’ for the recipe and nutritional information.Ingredients:

  • 0.5 cup splenda (or white sugar)
  • 6 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 0.75 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 0.5 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 0.25 cup chopped nuts
  • 0.25 cup rains
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

 Method:  

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F (175C).  Grease a 9×5″ loaf pan
  2. Beat the sugar and applesauce together.
  3. Sift the dry ingredients into the applesauce mixture. 
  4. Add the eggs, carrots, nuts, raisins and vanilla.  Stir it all together.
  5. Spread into the loaf pan and level the mixture.
  6. Bake in the pre-heated oven for approximately 50-55 minutes
