Total time
Recipe type: Sweet bread / Dessert
Serves: 1 loaf
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar (or light brown)
  • ⅓ cup almond milk (or other)
  • ½ cup olive oil (not extra-virgin)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder (1 sachet)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 apple, grated
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • Note: 1 cup = 250 ml
  1. Preheat oven to 175 C (350 F).
  2. Prepare a bread baking pan and grease it with oil and dust with flour (not necessary if you are using a silicone one).
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, sugar, milk, olive oil and vanilla and whisk it until it's well combined.
  4. In another bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon and stir until it's combined.
  5. Add the flour mixture into the wet mixture and stir with a spoon or spatula until it's just combined. Than add grated apple and carrot and fold in with the spatula.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared bread baking pan and bake for 45 minutes until the top is golden brown and the tester comes out with few crumbs but not batter. You can cover it with the aluminium foil for the last 15 minutes of baking to prevent from becoming too brown on top.
  7. Note: Leave to cool well before removing from the baking pan. Keep at room temperature for a day or two and after that in the fridge for up to 1 week. Enjoy!
