Carrot and Ginger Corn Bread

Adapted from Delicious Living Magazine

This gluten-free recipe has a fantastic texture and zippy ginger taste. Make-ahead tip: The uncooked batter keeps in the refrigerator for several days, so you can make fresh, hot muffins any time. Ingredient tip: Turbinado sugar is similar to brown sugar but with a coarser texture.

Makes 2 loaves or about 16 muffins

Ingredients
1 cup Ellyndale™ Organic Sunflower Oil
5 eggs
1 ripe banana, finely chopped
2/3 cup NOW Real Food® Organic Turbinado Sugar*
2/3 cup shredded carrot (1 medium-large carrot), finely grated

  4. Add dry mixture to egg mixture and continue mixing until fully combined.
  5. Lightly grease two 8 ½ x 4 ½ x 2 ½–inch loaf pans or about 16 muffin cups.
