Recipe Box: Vegan Carrot Cake Loaf – Gluten Free, Nut Free, Soy Free
This carrot cake loaf is a great treat to have on hand. Moist, light and subtly sweetened, it is delicious for breakfast, as a midday snack or even dessert. Because it is loaded with fresh carrots and raisins, it is healthier and guilt free too.
The holiday season is around the corner and you know what that means? Baking galore! Since it is always a challenge to find delectable, healthier version and yes gluten free or allergy friendly baked goods, this year, I teamed up with some food allergy bloggers to make things a little easier for you.
We created this Allergy-Friendly Blog Hop where each participant will share their favorite, time tested breakfast or snack recipe. Scroll to the bottom of this post to see what everyone has for you.
