Carrot and Pineapple Loaf

These cute little guys are AMAZING, such a tasty flavour combo. The idea was from Taste but of course the recipe had to be made healthy so that's exactly what I did. These loafs (can also be made into one) are now gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free.

If you have tried my apple and zucchini loaf (recipe here) you will love these. The exact same recipe just a different flavour combo.

Enjoy.
