YIELD: 12 Small Loaves
½ cup spelt flour
½ cup kamut flour
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup oat bran
1/3 cup rolled oats
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Pinch sea salt (approx. 1/8 tsp)
2 eggs (free run or free range)
½ cup lightly packed brown sugar
3 tbsp. high quality vegetable oil (high oleic oils are much less susceptible to heat damage)
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 tbsp. milk
1 cup each grated carrots and zucchini (packed)
Preheat oven to 350oF. Lightly grease an 8″ loaf pan.
Combine dry ingredients together in a bowl. Combine and beat the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and add the grated carrot and zucchini.
Combine the dry ingredients to the wet and stir to combine.
Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes (this varies depending on loaf pan size) or until a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.
