This carrot bread is GF, DF, RSF, and still tastes amazing! It is sweetened with coconut sugar and maple syrup, no refined sugar. And it is made with avocado oil, no dairy! I like making this bread for Easter brunch, but it is great anytime of the year. If you want to take it up a notch, you can use this bread for French toast!
For the shredded carrots, you can buy them at the store, but I like to shred my own. You are able to shred the carrots a bit finer than what you find in the store, which I prefer. Also, the recipe below will work for sea level and high altitude. I find that for gluten free recipes you do not need to adjust the baking soda or baking powder for altitude. The only difference is the oven temperature which is noted in the recipe. Hope you enjoy!
