Carrot & Coconut Bread Recipe - Healthy Baking

This week's recipe is a little bit different. The mix of ingredients are healthier options. It contains no butter, no refined flour and no refined sugar but at the same time it's still super tasty. My husband, J is my harshest critic and has no care for 'health' when it comes to baking and even he can't get enough of this. So it's good news, you can feel less guilty when you're devouring this tasty delight and not feel like you are missing out in any way.


Some would argue that this is recipe is not bread. I would say it's in between cake and bread but not exactly either. This is actually my take on the traditional banana bread so I have named it accordingly. The loaf forms a lovely crusty outside and a tender, moist inside and is a winner with everyone who has tried it.



I enjoy my slice with a cup of herbal tea or coffee for an afternoon snack.

  5. Me too! When I started my blog I intended to include all kinds of recipes but when I really thought about it, my baking is where I really put all my love so I thought I'd stick with sharing my baking recipes.
    I take all my photos with my iPhone 6 so no need to stop using your phone. Just make sure it has a good camera. I put a lot of thought into the setting and my angles and then edit the photo with a simple photo editing app. I've been working hard on the photos I put on my blog so it means a lot that you like them, thank you x
