Carrot Raisin Bread
A sweet, soft & tender, delicious spiced quick bread. Made with a bunch of goodness - carrots, raisins and bananas - and no butter or oils!

large ripe banana
chopped nuts or chia seeds
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease or spray a large loaf pan.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spices. I like to mix the dry ingredients using a whisk. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, mash the banana - I use a fork to do this. Add in carrots, applesauce and eggs. Mix well.
Combine liquid mixture (applesauce, bananas) to dry bowl. Add in raisins. Stir, by hand, until just moistened. Do not overmix!
Spoon/scrape bread mixture into a large, greased loaf pan.
Sprinkle nuts or chia seeds over top if using.
Bake for 60 -70 mins or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean / with a few dry crumbs.
Let bread cool in loaf pan on cooling rack before turning out. Enjoy!
Optional - top with cream cheese, softened butter, apple butter or peanut butter.
