How to make Carrot Coconut Bread:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees fahrenheit or 165 degrees celsius
  2. Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan. Keep aside
  3. Take a large mixing bowl. Add oil and honey (or maple syrup). Beat them up together with a whisk. Add the eggs and beat well
  4. Add milk and whisk well. If you’re using coconut oil and it solidifies on contact with cold ingredients, warm it up for 10-15 seconds in a microwave
  5. Add vanilla extract, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt. Gently blend
  6. Add shredded carrots and coconut. Gentle mix
  7. Add flour. Stir with a big spoon and mix until all ingredients are just combined
  8. Gently fold in the almonds into the batter. Reserve a little to sprinkle on the top
  9. Pour the batter into the greased loaf pan. Sprinkle cinnamon and chopped almonds
  10. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean
  11. Let the bread cool in the loaf pan for 5-10 minutes, then take it out and let it cool down for another 10-15 mins
  12. Your Carrot Coconut Bread is ready. It’ll remain good for 5 days under refrigeration and 2 days on the shelf.
