Call Me Carrot….

I’m about to head to O-Town to spend the weekend with GF Guy. But, before I go, I wanted to share my latest recipe!
More inspiration! Yesterday at work the “Odwalla Guy” gave me a free bottle of Pure Carrot Juice. 
Now, a normal person would drink it. I, on the other hand, to one look at that gorgeous orange liquid and thought… 
“I should bake with that!”
And bake I did. Not bothering to take off my coat, I began measuring and mixing the moment I arrived home. By golly, it worked!
This whole grain, vegan bread is subtly sweet and the perfect accompaniment to a cup of coffee for breakfast. (or crumbled overtop a bowl of pumpkin puree!!!!!!! I’m seriously obsessed….)
