This healthy sweet potato bread is so delicious that I have a hard time not finishing the whole thing myself!

What makes this bread healthy? It’s made of fiber-filled, protein-packed and energizing ingredients!

Not to mention it’s super easy to make 🙂

I’m going to give you 2 options in the recipe. One will reduce the amount of oil and syrup used to make it even healthier. If you are looking for more of that dessert bread leave the original amount.

Healthier, Carrot-Ginger Dessert Bread (Version 2)

Now onto this ‘Healthier, Carrot-Ginger Dessert Bread!’

img_3591

This version, Version 2, is more sweet & moist for more of that dessert bread taste!

Coconut oil is getting a lot of debate right now, being called ‘basically poison.’ I don’t use coconut oil often & don’t eat much fat in general. So for me, I don’t think baking with it occasionally is a problem. If you feel like you would rather avoid it try using non-dairy, non-soy plain greek yogurt instead! You can replace it for the full amount or keep half the amount of coconut oil & replace the other half with the yogurt 🙂

This ‘dessert’ version is still way healthier than your average banana or zucchini bread loaded with sugar, butter, & white flour. So bake this puppy up, don’t stress, & enjoy!
