Carrot Bread Recipe
This recipe is grain and dairy free, as well as sugar free. It is suitable for those on the SIBO diet. This recipe is inspired by one I found here a few weeks ago. In addition to being diagnosed with SIBO recently I also found out that I am allergic to chicken eggs. In a bid to be able to still eat something that is baked and resembles bread I have been trialing the use of duck eggs. I have been doing a straight substitute and so far all seems fine with those – besides the fact they are double the price! They also have a little bit of a stronger flavour.
The image shows bluish bits in the bread because I used purple heirloom carrots that I picked up from our local farm-gate last week. The kids love the purple ones for something different. It always generates a conversation at the dinner table when I have them. Regular carrots will work the same, avoiding the blue tinge through the bread.
This bread makes me happy because to date I have not had a bread-based option for breakfast. I was missing my regular sourdough fiercely. I also enjoy it toasted as an afternoon snack.
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- ¼ cup desiccated coconut
- 2 tablespoons cashew butter (or nut butter of choice - except peanut for a SIBO diet)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup coconut flour
- 1 cup grated carrot
- 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon almond meal
- 3 tablespoons almond milk
- Heat the oven to 160-170 degrees celcius
- Line a loaf tin with baking paper or grease well with coconut oil
- Melt the coconut oil for 30 seconds in the microwave, or in a pan
- Add the melted coconut oil, coconut, cashew butter and eggs to a bowl and whisk until well combined and the mixture looks fluffy
- Add the remaining ingredients and stir well to combine into a dough
- Pour, or scoop the mixture into the baking tin
- Add to the oven and cook for 25 minutes
- Test for readiness by inserting a knife into the center of the bread. It will be removed clean if the cake is ready.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
- This recipe may be frozen if you are making multiple loaves, or not planning to use it straight away.
