Nutty Carrot Cake Bread

April 12, 2017

Easter is in four days, and I’ve been going through Pinterest like crazy, and experimenting recipes high and low for Easter themed recipes. Every Easter, we make a hearty and semi-fancy Easter Sunday brunch, and this year I’ve been slacking a little bit on the whole meal-planning aspect of things. Rightow, I’m sitting in history class, and instead of doing my classwork, I’m putting together a mini-menu for this weekend. I know, I set my priorities pretty straight ;)

Since the spring season is in full swing, I’ve noticed that so many people are using carrot in their recipes! As I’m scrolling through Instagram in the morning, I see carrot muffins, cake, even carrot cake themed oatmeal. It was impossible not to make something carrot-themed. So, my carrot cake bread was born!

I also have a video tutorial at the bottom of this post! It’s not the best quality (I shot it with one of my dad’s very old video cameras) and I’m not going to include on in every post, but I thought it would be fun to change it up a bit. I want to do more food videos, but they take so long!

Products: Mixed nuts | cinnamon (I love buying cinnamon in bulk because I use it so much, and it’s way cheaper that way) | coconut milk
