Healthy carrot bread

Lately I have been making quite a lot of juice and carrots is one of the main ingredients that I use. It is truly a shame to waste all the remaining pulp of carrots. So, I baked bread with it!

In most of the cases carrot breads are sweet. For example:

Carrot Pumpkin Bread:

These breads look great! Never the less, I was looking for a recipe that would help to bake a bread that could be eaten with everything.

In this way I have adjusted the recipes and came up with this one:

  • 1 cup of carrots (grated)
  • 1 pack of active yeast
  • 1 tbsp of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 3 1/2 cups of bread flour

Mix all the ingredients in bread machineย  โ€“ dough setting. Then form the bread and leave it rise in 100F.

Bake in 390F for 35min.

  1. Oh yum, I love anything to do with carrots and baking (though oddly I am not that keen on carrots as a veg). I will make this next time I need to make bread – but not this week, as hubby went mad in the new bakery in town and I have enough bread in the freezer to feed most of Turkey.
