Best Ever Delicious Carrot Bread Recipe
Homemade carrot bread is unbeatable with tea or coffee! This vegan carrot bread recipe is one of my favorite bread recipes and the most delicious homemade bread for breakfast or afternoon tea. This amazing homemade healthier bread is made with applesauce without milk or eggs. The taste and texture is incredibly perfect and remains the best ever dairy-free homemade bread that you will love for any occasion.
Baking with freshly grated carrots is not just healthy but an easy way to boost the flavor of the bread with the natural flavor and sweet taste of carrot with or without artificial sugar or milk. Carrot is naturally sweet and adding raisins, dates and unsweetened applesauce will reduce the need for artificial sugar.
The taste and flavor of unsweetened homemade applesauce is simply the best and my favorite for most of my vegan baked goodies. Unsweetened applesauce is rich in antioxidants, flavorful, add moisture, and a perfect substitute for eggs.
Coconut Sugar is a natural palm sugar that is vegan friendly with a sweet and similar flavor to brown sugar. This nutritious sugar will keep your homemade bread soft and moist.
Raisins are dry with the perfect sweet taste and flavor that is good for every homemade bread.
