What do you do when you want both a banana bread and carrot bread, You make Carrot Banana Bread!

I was playing around with my gluten-free fruit cake recipe for a no grain version banana bread. Too many Bananas can tend to make gummy results with a bit of error easily. Addition of some other fruit for additional moisture helps reduce that and also adds great flavor, moisture and texture to the bread. For with gluten(regular flour) version make my 1 Bowl Banana Apple Bread with shredded carrots and spices of choice.

This bread uses almond flour and coconut as the base. This Carrot Banana Bread is moist and textured with flavors from banana, carrot, spices and vanilla and great to snack on. To make it into a banana cake, add a cashew cinnamon frosting like my carrot cake

This bread is soft, super moist, delicious and comforting. Let me know if you try it!

I haven’t tried it without almonds. If you do make it with other nut flour or sunflower seed flour, let me know how it turns out.

Since I discovered how well citric acid does in gluten-free baking I’ve been using it more and more. This bread uses only a bit which can be omitted. It seems to also prolong the shelf life of the baked result as they dont taste stale as quickly.

    Can you clarify what is the first ingredient? The 3/4 cup ingredient is not spelled out! 3/4 cup (84.22 g) ??? + 2 tbsp almond flour

    1. Richa says:

      It’s almond flour

  2. Patrícia says:

    Hi 😊. I’m a little bit confuse about 1.25 tsp baking powder. Does that means 1 tsp and 1/4 or and a half ?

    1. Richa says:

      It’s 1 1/4

    Hi!

    I’m in quarantine and don’t have potato starch. I have corn starch, arrowroot, chia seeds, and flax. Any recommendations on substitute? Thank you!!!

    1. Richa says:

      use a mix of arroroot and corn starch

  5. Chris Voci-Nam says:

    Hi Richa,

    Would cornstarch work? I have never tried potato starch. I just stumbled upon your sight and I gotta say everything I have seen on it so far looks amazing! I cannot wait to try some of your Indian dishes, I love Indian food!

    Looking forward to trying this bread.

    1. Richa says:

      Thanks! Potato starch adds a lot of volume, you can trty with cornstarch. it might have a slightly denser texture

    Can I sub cornstarch for potato starch?

    I really want to try this recipe, but make it a basic banana bread. I was trying to find an almond flour recipe, specifically, but this will work because I just happened to buy coconut flour on a whim the other day.
    I just don’t have potato starch on hand :/

    1. Richa says:

      yes, also add a bit more almond flour

      1. Dominique says:

        About how much do you think?

        1. Richa says:

          2-3 tbsp more

  8. Diane Tozzo says:

    just made this…. I added 1-1/2 cups of carrots and 1/4 cup of pecans and walnuts… It came out amazing! thank you!

    1. Richa says:

      yay!

  9. Kaja says:

    you list chia seeds here, on the list of wet ingredients – do you mean dry chia seeds? or is this chia seeds egg substitute, i.e. combined with water?

    1. Richa says:

      dry seeds. for egg i would say ” 1 chia egg (mix 1 tbsp chia seds in 3 tbsp water).” Whenever i say “chia seeds”, they are dry.
