Carrot Quinoa Breakfast Bread


Breakfast & Brunch



Carrot quinoa breakfast bread is the perfect way to start a healthy day! Quinoa is a “superfood”—extremely high in nutrients and protein and low in fat—this gluten-free grain has a ton of nutritional value and will help you start the day feeling energized and fit. Our quinoa bread makes a perfect side dish for any balanced breakfast, or you can take a slice for the road to have with your morning coffee. However you eat it, this bread is a yummy, healthy alternative to breakfast pastries. Bring it to book club or bake a loaf for the office, and watch your co-workers faces light up as they ask for the recipe. Then be sure to head back over and write a review. We would love to hear your thoughts and comments on this superfood recipe.

As nutritious as quinoa is, this recipe also features enough delicious flavors to ensure that you aren’t left with a bland bread. ½ teaspoon of ginger and nutmeg and one tablespoon of cinnamon add sweet flavors that are right at home with a warm cup of coffee. Grated carrots, chopped walnuts, banana, tart apple, and a dash of maple syrup ensure that this quinoa bread has something for everyone. Mixing in one cup of our Cabot Lowfat Plain Greek Yogurt helps keep the bread light and fluffy. This breakfast bread is so tasty you’ll never want to eat a donut again.
