Carrot Pumpkin Bread, a two bowl healthy quick bread!

This month’s recipe redux asked us to share our favorite quick bread.

What’s a quick bread?  

According to the every so helpful Wikipedia:

Quick bread is any bread leavened with leavening agents other than yeast or eggs.

Quick breads include many cakes, brownies and cookies—as well as banana bread, beer bread, biscuits, cornbread, muffins, pancakes, scones, and soda bread.

Preparing a quick bread generally involves two mixing bowls. One contains all dry ingredients (including chemical leavening agents or agent) and one contains all wet ingredients (possibly including liquid ingredients that are slightly acidic in order to initiate the leavening process). 

Quick breads are my favorite as I am horrible at anything requiring yeast and kneading.  I don’t have the skill and I definitely don’t have the patience!  Plus, I like the consistency and taste of quick breads better!  For this challenge I combined two of my favorites, pumpkin bread and carrot cake!  I just dusted these loaves with powdered sugar, but by all means top with a cream cheese frosting instead! Try this vegan version from Minimalist Baker, it looks delicious!

This recipe combines wholesome ingredients such as whole wheat pastry flour, oat flour, pumpkin, apple sauce and a whopping 3 cups of shredded carrots!!!  Ones slices weighs in at 175 calories and 6 grams of fat, but also provides 3 grams of fiber!

They don’t call it quick bread for nothing!  Like Wikipedia says, mix dry ingredients, mix wet ingredients and combine together! This recipe makes 2 loaves, one to share and one for you 🙂
