A loaf of sweet bread is a great way to start the morning in our house. This sweet Carrot Coconut Bread is loaded with veggies making it acceptable to eat “carrot cake” for breakfast.
This Loaded Carrot Cake is one of my all time favorite desserts. I just don’t make it very often. Actually it is usually the one dessert that I order when we go out to eat.
I think the reason I do not make it very often is because I would eat it all tiny sliver by sliver. And that’s never good when you are trying to be good and eat healthy.
So what did I do instead? I made carrot bread with lots of carrots and coconut added in. I feel better eating this sweet bread for breakfast because it’s technically a healthy carrot bread because of all the orange veggies in it.
But since I made it in a loaf pan, I’m sticking with calling this bread AND eating it for breakfast. It’s the little things that make me happy.
Also, if anyone was wondering this Carrot Coconut Bread recipe also works great in different pans. I made this Carrot Bundt Cake with the same recipe, only that time I added nuts and raisins to the batter.
A layer of cream cheese frosting makes this Carrot Coconut Bread taste so good.
I actually made this sweet bread a few years ago and had forgotten how delicious it was. I also had forgotten how bad my photography skills were back then.
Seriously? What was I thinking when I threw chocolate chips on top of this breakfast loaf? Toasted coconut is a much better addition to this easy breakfast loaf.
Years of making recipes sure gives you a different perspective and eye for food!!! It was time to refresh these pictures. Plus, I had an extreme desire to have “bread” for breakfast this week.
Of course, with all the coconut inside and outside, no one else in my house is going to touch this Carrot Coconut Bread. That could be a good or bad thing. I’ll let you know when I finish it all off.
