  • 2 cups of whole wheat flour

  • 4 tsp of baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp of salt
  • 3/4 cup of turbinado sugar
  • 1 tbsp of freshly grated ginger
  • 1 cup of cornmeal
  • 1 tsp of ground cinnamon

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded carrots

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ½ cup oat flour
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Step-by-step instructions:
Step 1: Preheat the oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F and grease a loaf pan with oil spray.

Step 2: Prepare the wet ingredients

In a mixing bowl, mash both ripe bananas with a fork until they are soft and gooey. Then add in your grated carrots and fresh ginger, along with 2 eggs, and whisk until everything is combined properly. Stir in the mixture of turbinado sugar and vanilla extract, mixing until completely smooth.

Step 3: Add the dry ingredients

Next, you need to add all the dry ingredients – almond flour, oat flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt – to a separate medium-sized bowl. Take a whisk or fork to stir together all of these dry ingredients until well combined.

Step 4: Mix the wet and dry ingredients

Slowly pour your bowl of dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients. Use a spatula or wooden spoon to mix everything together until the batter is fully blended. Make sure there are no lumps.

Step 5: Transfer batter to the pan

Pour your batter into the greased loaf pan you have prepared earlier.

Step 6: Bake in preheated oven

Bake your gluten-free banana carrot gingerbread for about 45-50 minutes at preheated oven. Keep an eye on it after 40 minutes and use a toothpick to check if the center is cooked properly. Once cooked through, take it out of the oven and let it cool down for 10-15 minutes.

Step 7: Slice, serve, and enjoy!

Once it’s completely cooled, slice your bread and serve with a cup of tea or hot chocolate.

Dearest foodies,

Fear not, for there are many variations of this delightful Carrot, Banana and Ginger Bread recipe that can cater to your personal tastes or dietary needs.

For those who crave a different flour blend, this recipe can handle any type of flour, including almond flour or oat flour in place of the whole wheat flour. If you prefer a grain-free option, try using gluten-free flour instead.

To make it vegan-friendly, simply substitute eggs with an egg replacer or applesauce and swap out the milk with almond milk, which offers a similar consistency. This substitution works well for anyone with egg or dairy allergies as well.

For an extra punch of flavor, you may add additional spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg. For those who desire some sweetness in their bread, feel free to sprinkle in some turbinado sugar or coconut sugar to achieve desired sweetness.

If you wish to make this into a traditional carrot cake or banana bread instead, adjust the recipe accordingly- omitting the ginger and cornmeal and using cream cheese frosting or golden syrup topping for the carrot cake. The banana bread can be made by leaving out the carrots and doubling up on the bananas.

So even though this recipe is delicious as written, do not hesitate to make it your own!

It’s always a good idea to plan ahead when it comes to food. This recipe can be made ahead of time and stored for later. Simply wrap the carrot, banana and ginger bread tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and store it in the fridge for up to 5 days.

If you want to keep it for longer, you can freeze it for up to 3 months. Make sure the bread has fully cooled down before wrapping it up tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, then place it in a freezer-safe bag or container.

When it comes to reheating, there are a few options. You can either take the bread out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature before serving, or you can heat it up in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for 10-15 minutes.

If you’re short on time, you can quickly warm up individual slices in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds each. However, keep in mind that reheating it too long will dry out the bread.

Whether you decide to store it in the fridge or freezer, this gluten-free and dairy-free bread is a perfect make-ahead option for breakfast or snack time during busy days. It heats up easily and retains its moist texture and flavorful taste.

Carrot, Banana and Ginger Bread (Gluten Free)

Carrot, Banana and Ginger Bread (Gluten Free) Recipe

The original title of this recipe is carrot and ginger corn bread but I felt this tasted much more like banana bread than a corn bread. (I didn't want to mislead anyone.) Yields two loaves or approximately sixteen muffins. Next time I'll try brown jasmine rice to see if there is any difference in either texture or taste. Yes, I know-I did indeed notice the significant amount of oil and eggs used this recipe. This'll be one of those once in a blue moon-type recipes. From deliciouslivingmagazine. com.
