Fabulous Carrot Loaf

Spread it with cream cheese or eat a slice plain with a glass of milk. This yummy loaf is similar to carrot cake in flavour, but much lower in fat and higher in fibre.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup shredded carrots , (about 1 large carrot)
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup well-drained crushed pineapple
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 9 x 5-inch (23 x 13 cm) loaf pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded carrots, brown sugar, yogurt, crushed pineapple, eggs and oil. With a fork or whisk, mix the ingredients together until thoroughly combined.
  • In another bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir the flour mixture into the carrot mixture, mixing just until evenly combined.
  • Turn batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes to 1 hour, or until a toothpick poked into the middle of the loaf comes out clean.
