Amazing carrot/date bread

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 😉

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:
