This my friends, is like heavenly carrot-cake in a bread form, infused with gooey chunks of caramelly dates. And the best part? You can enjoy all the slices you want, because it is so good for you: high in fiber and carbs, with lots of nutrients and very low in fat.
There’s really nothing better than enjoying a warm slice of this bread, and the amazing spices reminds me so much of Christmas. I’m definitely going to make this bread sooo many times over the holidays 🙂
Prepare yourself for lots of pictures today.. Food is just awesome 😉
- 2 cups wholegrain spelt flour
- 1 1/4 cup oat milk (or nondairy milk of choice)
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- About 2 large carrots finely grated
- About 10 small dates chopped
- 2 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tbsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 2 tbsp. baking powder
Preheat your oven to 200°C.
Then combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl, and mix well:
Add oat milk, and whisk until it’s smooth and well-combined. Then fold in the grated carrots and chopped dates.
Scoop the dough into a loaf-pan with parchment paper, and bake in the oven for roughly 40 minutes. (check if a toothpick comes out clean). And enjoy the lovely aroma that will spread in your house!
It’s always a good idea to let the bread cool and set a little bit after baking (even though it’s hard to wait)…
But before you know it, you’ll be left with this goodness:
