  • 1 1/2 cups flour of choice see note below
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon + 1 extra tsp for gluten free version
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup almond milk or milk of choice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup oil I used avocado
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup grated carrots about 2 medium carrots


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease your favorite loaf pan
  • Whisk together your dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmein a medium bowl
  • Add in your wet ingredients (applesauce, milk, vanilla, egg, oiand whisk until throughly combined
  • Add and fold in your oats and carrots
  • Pour into prepared loaf pan
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes (you know its done when the edges are lightly browned and starting to separate from the sides of the pan and the bread will bounce back when you touch it)
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan
  • After you remove it from the pan let it cool on a wire rack for additional 10 minutes before slicing.


1. Flour Choice - I tested with the following flours
a. Whole Wheat Flour
b. Bob's Red Mill 1-1 Gluten Free Flour Blend: This version was slightly more dense then the other versions and absorbed the flavors more. I would add 1 extra tsp of cinnamon.
c. Bob's Red Mill Paleo Blend
2. Sugar - we have been trying to limit the amount of sugar in household and we thought this was plenty sweet without added sweetener. If you want your family to have a healthy veggie and fruit loaded bread and you do not think they will enjoy it without some added sugar you can feel free to add 1/4 - 1/3 cup of sugar, maple syrup or honey.
