Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs room temperature
  • 3/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil in liquid form
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups grated carrots

For Glaze (optional)

  • 2 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 5 tablespoons confectioners sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir together. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, Greek yogurt, orange juice, coconut oil and vanilla. Stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the carrots.
  • Transfer to two greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
  • Just before serving, make the glaze by whisking together cream cheese, milk, and confectioner's sugar in a small bowl. Drizzle over loaves.
