Carrot and Walnut Quick Bread, Healthy Easy Bread

Last week after seeing a doctor, I feel like I wanted something more healthy in my fridge, ^ ^. Well, you know that baking is fun and eating it is great. I love to bake and I enjoy eating it too. But there is a time that we have to accept the truth, we can't live our life that way.

So, I try to find some healthy bread to balance my diet, starting by baking a quick bread. I mean, it's better for your health than cake right? This bread is very easy to make,too, it takes only 10-15 minutes for preparation, it's the real quick bread.

This bread is packed with all good things, carrot, walnut and rye flour. It's not too sweet, the sugar in the recipe is quite low, so it can be a good snack (ok, I have an unheathy plan for you, but it's delicious when serve it with the spreadable cream cheese, ha).

*If you like, you can add 25g of raisin, it will give this bread a sweet flavor and children will love it, too.
