kristencarrotcakeloaf

Baked and brought this beauty home for Easter!
This is a carrot cake loaf. It is so delicious.
Full of wonderful and tasteful superfoods such as walnuts, coconut, and of course carrots!
This was my first time trying out cassava flour and luckily, it was an awesome experience and treat!
It is made from 100% yuca root.
This bread is Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, and Vegan.
Please enjoy!
