Morning Glory Bread (aka Carrot-Apple Bread)

 
Prep time 15 minutes
Cook time 50-60 minutes
Ready in 1 hour, 10 minutes
Makes 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup grated carrots
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and grated
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/3 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin coconut oil (in liquid form)
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp fine grain sea salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
 

Directions

1. Pre-heat the oven to 350oF. Grease a standard loaf pan with a little bit of coconut oil and briefly set aside.
2. In a mixing bowl, whisk the carrots, apple, egg, egg white, yogurt and maple syrup and coconut oil until very well combined.
3. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda.
4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until combined. Fold in the raisins and walnuts.
5. Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan, and smooth the top with a spatula. (The batter will be pretty thick.) I like to sprinkle a few extra chopped walnuts and raisins on top, but that’s completely optional.
6. Bake for 50-55 minutes until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. (Be careful not to overbake! You want to keep things moist.)
7. Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then carefully transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
8. Slice and serve!
 

Notes

This bread is delicious on its own, but I like to serve it with a little bit of salted butter or cream cheese and a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar.
