Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Breakfast Bread

This Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Breakfast Bread recipe is the perfect breakfast giving a full serving for protein, veggies, and simple carbs to start your day off right! Make ahead or serve hot out of the oven these glorious gluten-free carrot cakes are a complete breakfast.

Last January, I started a fitness program called 80 Day Obsession.  It is a Beachbody workout that incorporates timed nutrition to maximize results. I liked it a lot because it made figuring out what to eat each day very easy.

Some might see it as a bit regimented but I like plans where the thinking is pretty much removed. Less thinking means less cheating! Each morning my meals consisted of protein usually in the form of two eggs a cup of veggies and a small serving of simple carbs an hour or so before my early morning workout.

Actually, the workout didn’t have to be in the morning but that is what worked best for me. Thing is scrambled eggs, oatmeal and spinach each morning was a no brainer but got boring real fast.

I set out to find some options to break free from the “same old, same old”. Some people can eat protein like chicken with eggs in the morning but I just can’t do it. Chicken in the morning… ugh… and yes I know eggs are from chickens!

Eggs and bacon, Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes or a protein shake are about as creative as I have been able to get in the past that is until I came across this recipe for these Gluten Free Carrot Cake Breakfast Breads.

How to Make Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Breakfast Bread

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Grease and lightly flour 4 mini loaf pans.

In a blender add the shredded or match sticked carrots, eggs, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and vanilla.  Close the cover of the blender tightly and blend on high for about 2-3 seconds.  All you need is for everything to be mixed well and the carrots are broken down to small fine pieces.

Evenly pour the batter into each of the 4 loaf pans.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the centre of each bread.  When done remove from the oven and let stand for 5 minutes to cool slightly.  Remove breads from pan and set on a paper towel for a minute or two.


I find that these breakfast breads can be a little moist on the bottom from the high amount of eggs in this recipe.  Sitting them for a minute or two on paper towels helps to soak up some of the moisture.  I also highly recommend cutting them in half lengthwise and toasting in a toaster oven or large toaster.  Doing so gives them a nice crunch.

  • Cut in half lengthwise and toast before eating and add a tsp of peanut butter or butter as you wish – They are the best toasted!

    1. I have never tried this but I don’t think it will work as well. The oats soften up and I think the rice or quinoa would be too granular.

  1. Will this work with an immersion blender? Are you milking the oats or just chopping them? I’d love to try this but I don’t have a proper blender. Thanks!

    1. Hi Leslie, I have never tried this with an immersion blender but I don’t see why not. I don’t do anything with the oats. Just toss them in and blend. Let me know how it turns out with the immersion blender if you give it a whirl (pardon the pun!)

    Love it! No sweetener of any sort, tender, tasty, and easy. Though carrot curd is not sugar free, I did top a slice if this bread with some.

  3. Hi so excited to try this! Can I use one reg size loaf pan instead of 4 small mini ones?

    1. Hi Samantha,

      I have never tried it this way but I am certain it would work out just the same. You will need to add more time baking so make sure that a toothpick inserted comes out clean as you would any loaf. Please let me know how it turns out this way. Good luck!

    Recipe did not turn out as pictured. Do not make if you do not have a blender. Also, I am unsure how this makes enough for 4 tins. I made 1/4 of the recipe and it barely filled 1/4 of my mini bread tin.

    1. I am so sorry you did not enjoy this recipe but a blender is necessary for this recipe to be able to break down the carrots so they are in tinier pieces. As well you are correct that this recipe will only make enough for a 1/4 of a standard loaf pan. In the equipment list and instructions, this recipe lists that 4 mini loaf pans are required. One mini loaf pan is the same volume as a 1/4 of a standard loaf pan. I do hope you are able to give it a try again now that I have provided a greater insight into the instructions provided with this recipe.
