I mean, this is quite a bit more healthy than lots of breakfast cereals out there. Also, this bread is so good you really don't even need the glaze you see I added to mine. But go ahead and add the glaze if you want. It's pretty. And tasty.
After baking, eating, sharing, and photographing this bread, I sat down at my computer to edit these photos, and I realized that the little dish of shredded carrots kind of looks like shredded cheddar cheese.
That has nothing to do with anything. I just thought you should know. Okay, let's bake some bread together!
1 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup cashews
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
Wash, peel, and grate (or shred) your carrots. I got lazy and shredded mine in a food processor instead of grating them by hand.
In a large bowl, combine the sugar and softened butter, and cream together until the mixture becomes a pale yellow. Stir in the eggs and vanilla.
Combine the dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients along with the carrots, cashews, and Greek yogurt. Stir until just combined. Spoon the batter into a buttered baking dish. Bake at 325°F for 55-60 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan.
