One of my favorite quotes is by J.R.R. Tolkien: "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." Here I'm giving glimpses of all I am deciding in the time that is given to me. Enjoy! All pictures and posts are mine, thank you! Please ask permission for photo use.

carrot buckwheat bread

Recently I was going through my refrigerator and my pantry, trying to use up some items, and somehow threw these ingredients together and baked them up into a yummy bread! I encourage creativity in the kitchen, so if you have different ideas for your own take on this recipe, and if you decide to get a little experimental in the kitchen, I'd love to hear how it goes!

  • 5 medium/large carrots, grated
  • 2 eggs (from happy, free-of-hormones-and-other-nasties, cage-free chickens, please!)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup organic canola oil
  • 1/4 cup hemp milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp stevia
  • 1 and 1/3 cup plus 2 tbsp buckwheat flour (that's how much was left in my bag!)
  • cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice to taste
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp soda
I basically mixed my wet ingredients with the sugar and stevia, then added in the dry stuff and mixed until combined. The buckwheat gives it a rich, dark color (and loads of fiber and protein!), and the carrots and applesauce lend a vitamin C boost. Pour your batter into a 2-quart square pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray or lightly greased. Bake at 350 for about 35-40 minutes. Enjoy!
