Quick and Healthy Sweet Carrot Bread

Making homemade bread can feel like a chore. There are usually a lot of ingredients, and a very long bake time.
But how delicious is a warm loaf, sliced with a slather of almond butter or vegan cream cheese? Omg I’m drooling just thinking about it. That’s why I had to create a recipe that didn’t scare people off (and by people, I do mean me 😉).
What I came up with is nothing short of YUM! Wait until you see how easy it is to make this Quick and Healthy Carrot Bread!
What makes it so easy & healthy?
It takes just a handful of ingredients to whip this carrot bread together. You don’t even need multiple bowls (like, who’s got time for that?!). Mix up your dry ingredients, add in the wet and go for it.
Honestly, the thing that takes the longest is shredding the carrots, so a little time-saving hack is to buy shredded carrots and toss them in a food processor and pulse until they’re chopped a bit finer.
The bake time is under 30-minutes too! Most breads take a full hour!
I used my Sculpt & Debloat Sweet Cream Protein Powder for a smooth vanilla flavor and boost of protein that also acts like a replacement for some of the flour typically needed in a bread recipe.
To keep this gluten-free, I chose almond flour.
Monk fruit sweetener is my go-to swap for sugar, so it’s in this recipe as well. But you could totally sub in coconut sugar or your sweetener preference.
