Ingredients

  • 2 1⁄4 cups blanched almond flour
  • 3⁄4 cup arrowroot starch
  • 1⁄2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1⁄4 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 3⁄4 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1⁄2 cup almond milk
  • 1⁄2 tsp. apple cider vinegar

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Heavily grease two 7 1⁄2 " × 3 1⁄2 " loaf pans with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the almond flour, arrowroot starch, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. Set aside. In a large bowl, mix the melted coconut oil, coconut sugar, eggs, carrots, almond milk, and apple cider vinegar. Stir the whisked dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
  • Divide the batter evenly between the pans. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean and the tops of the loaves are golden brown.
  • Allow the loaves to cool on a wire rack for one hour before slicing and serving. Wrap leftover bread in plastic wrap and store in zippered bags in the freezer for up to one month.
