    1 lb (454 gms) carrots, peeled and grated
    1 1/4 C (300 mL) whole wheat flour
    1 1/4 C (300 mL) cornmeal
    1/4 C (60 mL) flaxseed meal
    1 1/2 tsp (8mL) baking powder
    pinch of sea salt
    3 egg whites

    1/4 C (60 mL) walnuts, chopped


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (190 degrees C).

In a small saucepan place carrots and enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, and let cool.

In a medium mixing bowl place dry ingredients (flour, cornmeal, flaxseed meal, baking powder, salt).

In another bowl, whip egg whites until stiff.

In a small bowl put egg yolk, honey, and milk. Mix well, Add to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Add whipped egg whites and fold until just combined. Add dried fruit, nuts, and cooked carrots and mix until just combined. Do not over-mix or loaf will be tough.

Prepare a 5 x 9 inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Pour batter into loaf pan and bake for 60 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean.

Note: The original recipe did not include nuts and called for 10 servings. I added in the nuts and changed the recipe to 12 servings.

    Unfortunately, this carrot bread tastes just like corn bread, it was very dry and plain. Preparation was very long too. - 8/23/09
