Mandy's Morning Glory Bread

October is almost over!  Wow, where did the time go?  Our family has been so busy hosting visitors, attending festivals and being outdoors to enjoy the nice fall weather. 

I have been cooking my usual wonderful meals but I did try one new bread that turned out fantastic.  So I had to share it here.  It reminds me of  a "morning glory" style bread.  You could easily use dried cranberries in the place of raisins -- raisins were just what I had on hand at the time of making it. 

I loved it and shared it with my co-workers.  They all raved about it.  Try it for your morning breakfast, as a snack or any time of the day!  You won't be disappointed.

Mandy's Morning Glory Bread
(Makes 1 loaf)

6 eggs, preferably from free-range chickens
1/2 cup of coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup of honey
1/2 cup of coconut flour
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp of baking soda
dash of salt
1 ripe banana, sliced and mashed
1 apple, cored, peeled and cut into small pieces
2 and 1/2 cups of shredded carrots
1/2 cup of raisins (or use dried cranberries)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lighly grease a bread loaf pan with olive oil or coconut oil. 

Do the prep work for your fruit - mash your banana, peel and chop your apple.  Shred your carrots.  Set aside for later.

Place your eggs, melted coconut oil and honey in a large mixing bowl.  Whisk for about two minutes or until smooth. 

Add in the coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.  Whisk until all is blended (I used my electric mixer). 

Now add in the chopped, shredded and mashed fruit.  Mix with a large spoon or use the lowest setting on your electric mixer to combine.  Fold in the raisins (or dried cranberries). 

Spoon mixture out into the greased loaf pan.  Use a spoon or your hands to press it down and spread it evenly. 

Place in the oven.  Bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees or until desired brown color. 

Let it cool for about ten minutes before trying to slice and serve. 

Store in the fridge.  Eat on it for several days.  Reheat and spread a small amount of butter on it for pure delight!
