Spiced Carrot + Date “Break-Fast” Loaf




Gluten-free Spiced Carrot + Date “Break-Fast” Loaf. It’s the perfect healthy Iftar treat for Ramadan! 🙂 Dates are traditionally used for breaking the fast during the Ramadan. One of the many benefits of breaking the fast with dates is that dates have a high level of natural sugars for a bit of an energy boost! What I love about this breakfast loaf is that it is super moist, absolutely delicious, naturally sweetened with fruit and is gentle on the stomach. I also love the aromatic smells wafting from the oven throughout the kitchen. It is also completely refined sugar-free, dairy-free and gluten-free. Wrap them up into little parcels and they also make the perfect gift for your loved ones. YUM!!

    Hi Karen! this looks amazing.. I was wondering, can i use whole wheat flour instead of the almond meal? What would be the proportions?

    I really want to try this recipe but I don’t have any almond meal. Have you tried this recipe using a substitution? Or a different kind of flour? If so, what would the measurements be?
    What do you recommend?

    Hi Karen 🙂
    I’m DESPERATE to try out this recipe, but I’m vegan and can’t eat eggs 🙁 Could you maybe suggest a suitable replacement that would work? If I leave them out will it make a big difference?
    Thanks so much for all your lovely recipes- Secret Squirrel is my favorite recipe blog 🙂 x
