Carrot Coconut Bread

"This is a really moist hearty sweet bread that my family loves. It is adapted from a recipe in the "More With Less Cookbook". I sometimes reduce the fat even more by using apple sauce instead of the oil, but I do like the texture the oil gives it. Also, you can add 1/2 cup chopped nuts if you would like. It gives it a nice crunch."

  1. This is nice carrot bread. I liked the texture very much, but would prefer it to be a little sweeter and spicier, just personal preference. BTW, I cut the recipe in half to make one loaf, and baked it in an 8 by 5-inch pan, adding the optional nuts, and using the oil and whole egg. I followed the recipe otherwise. I did think the loaf turned out rather small. Thank you for letting me try your recipe.
  2. Best after a few days in the refrigerator. I like to add a Cream Cheese Glaze.
  3. Wonderful. Used half whole wheat anf more carrots than the recipie calls for...cooked it in a cake pan and passed it off as carrot cake. My hubby loves it, I love it... a real winner.
  4. THe taste was ok but I find the texture a bit too dry for me. I guess it's just my personal preference.
  5. I spiced this up a little with some ginger and nutmeg in addition to the cinnamon. Very nice, very nice texture too. I only got one normal loaf and one mini loaf out of the recipe. The loaves must be supposed to be really really small. Will certainly make this one again. I did use the oil, as it is so little, I thought it wasn't a big problem. Thanks!


Life without change is boring. And my life is never boring!! I don't know what plans have been made for us for the future, but I'm doing my best to enjoy the ride!
