Carrot loaf. A favourite of mine. In fact, there is a Raw Carrot Cake in my new recipe ebook too. So when I got lots of carrots in my Box Fresh delivery I didn’t need much excuse to whip a new, clean eating carrot loaf.
Carrot loaf (or cake) must have walnuts as far as I’m concerned. I also prefer some coconut in it, but not a huge fan of sultanas/raisins thanks anyway. This loaf is not at all sickly sweet, it’s delicious for breakfast (which might or might not have happened on Sunday) and was perfectly finished with some organic yoghurt and honey. To keep it dairy free I suggest serving with whipped coconut cream instead.

It’s also gluten free and refined sugar free, with only a little rice syrup (fructose friendly). I like the carrots grated on the larger side for texture, but you may prefer to grate them more finely. You can replace the coconut oil with organic butter if you like too.

So whether you add nuts, raisins or maybe even chocolate chips (!) try this delicious, healthy carrot cake.
