This Carrot Cake Loaf is a little twist on the classic banana bread. This eggless banana bread is overflowing with warm flavours, it’s perfectly sweet, and topped off with glamourous coconut cream. Things just got a little fancier over here at Greens, Eggs, and Yams.
Is anyone else sad that our days are getting shorter? Let’s just say I am not pleased that by 4 PM it’s already dark outside. Maybe if I was one of those crazies that LOVES getting up at 6 AM I wouldn’t care that much. But I’ve slowly learned and accepted I am not one of those people. Truthfully, my favourite time to sleep is from 5 -8 in the morning. Adam gets up for work at 5 which then means I can embrace my favourite sleeping position. AKA lying like a starfish in bed, which you just can’t do with a cat and a husband sleeping right next to you.
Anyways. The struggle is real as our days get a little shorter as we near December 21st. But maybe this banana carrot cake will help you navigate the dark days a little better. Don’t carrots help with vision? Maybe if you eat enough of this loaf you’ll be able to see great in the dark! I’m not promising anything though.
here are a few reasons why I love this healthy carrot cake loaf, so listen up!
- It’s not quite a carrot cake and it’s not quite banana bread. But if the two had a baby, this beautiful loaf would be it. It has the warm and spiciness of a carrot cake but a healthier batter full of goodness. It’s also topped with a coconut frosting rather than a cream cheese one. Because I’m sorry to say, I’m not a cream cheese fan. Don’t’ hate me.
- This banana carrot cake is Picky Husband Approved, vegan and gluten free. I think it’s pretty great when a recipe hits all those checkmarks.
- Now I will warn you the frosting is a little labour intensive but it’s so worth it! It makes this loaf just a little cooler than your regular banana bread. But if you don’t want to but in the extra sweat and tears (I’m just kidding it’s not that bad), or you are short on time, the loaf is delicious without the frosting as well!
in conclusion: you need to make this loaf.
Improved eyesight or not, this loaf is pretty darn tasty. The loaf is delicious with or without the coconut cream on top, so you can’t really go wrong. The coconut cream simply makes this loaf a little fancier and more like a healthy cake. She’s kind of like the QUEEN of banana bread. I hope you feel like royalty as you dig into this Cozy Carrot Cake Loaf. Enjoy♥
