Ultimate Carrot and Banana Bread with all the Good Stuff / Ultimativni kruh od mrkve i banane sa svim finim stvarima

I know, I know, there are a ton of banana bread recipes on this blog already. But this one is a winner. It’s loaded with healthy things like bananas, carrots, oats, flax seeds and walnuts. There’s only a tiny bit of sugar in it. And then there is chocolate, which makes it taste like the most decadent treat. But not overwhelmingly decadent. So don’t feel guilty for having a slice or two of this goodness for breakfast. Because that’s, in fact, exactly what you should do. Have this lovely bread for breakfast, brunch, with afternoon coffee, or with anything in between.

Also, a small note for all you lazy people out there. You can do most of the prepping stuff in a food processor, like making oat flour, chopping walnuts, shredding carrots, mashing banana and whisking eggs and yogurt. Yup, I am completely shameless when it comes to minimizing kitchen work. 😀

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a loaf pan with butter and line with baking sheet. Set aside. In a bowl whisk together flours, walnuts, flax seeds, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Znam, sve znam, već imam cijelu hrpu recepata za kruh od banane na ovom blogu. Ali ovaj je pobjednik. Pun je zdravih sastojaka kao što su banane, mrkva, zob, lan i orasi te ima samo mrvicu šećera. I onda još dolazi čokolada, zbog koje ovaj kruh ima okus dekadentne poslastice. Ali ne i pretjerano dekadentne. Tako da se ne osjećate krivima ako se sa šnitom ovog divnog kruha počastite za doručak. Jer zapravo, to je ono što i trebate napraviti. Uživajte u ovom kruhu za doručak, brunch, sa popodnevnom kavom ili bilo kada između.

Također, mala napomena za sve vas ljenguze. Većinu pripreme možete napraviti u multipraktiku, kao što je mljevenje zobenih pahuljica u brašno, sjeckanje oraha, ribanje mrkve, gnječenje banane i miksanje jaja i jogurta. Tako je, nemam ni malo srama kada treba minimizirati poslove u kuhinji. 😀

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 štrucu / 34,82 kn)

Za smjesu:

1 šalica zobenog brašna (1,50 kn)

1 šalica integralnog brašna (0,75 kn)

1 šalica sjeckanih oraha (7,50 kn)

3 žlice mljevenih sjemenki lana (0,75 kn)

3 žlice smeđeg šećera (0,75 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

½ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

3 banane (6,00 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 šalica jogurta (2,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

4 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (4,00 kn)

1 šalica ribane mrkve (1,25 kn)

2/3 šalice grožđica (2,00 kn)

2/3 šalice komadića čokolade (4,00 kn)

Dodatno:

Maslac za namastiti kalup (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Namastite kalup za kruh, obložite papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. U zdjeli pomiješajte brašna, orahe, lan, šećer, prašak za pecivo, sodu bikarbonu i sol.

U drugoj posudi zgnječite banane. Umutite u kašu od banana jaja, jogurt i vaniliju, pa umiješajte rastopljeni maslac i ribanu mrkvu. Prelijte mokre sastojke preko suhih i promiješajte da se sve sjedini. Konačno, nježno umiješajte grožđice i čokoladu. Preselite smjesu u pripremljeni kalup i poravnajte špatulom. Pecite 1 sat i 10 minuta dok čačkalica umetnuta u kruh ne bude čista (mrvica – dvije su isto ok). Pustite da se kruh skroz ohladi prije nego ga izvadite iz kalupa i razrežete.

Oat, Walnut and Raisin Carrot Bread / Kruh od mrkve sa zobi, orasima i grožđicama

I know what you’re thinking – we’ve just stepped out of the holiday season three seconds ago, so what is this crazy woman thinking by posting a cake recipe?! But this is more a bread than it is a cake and it’s actually on quite a healthy side of the spectrum, too. So you’re allowed – encouraged, even – to munch on this goodness for breakfast. And since plopping a bunch of batter in a bread tin makes for the easiest baking endeavor, you’ll be securing a breakfast for quite a few days in just a few minutes.

Have I already convinced you to try out this recipe? I sure hope so, because this bread is not only easy and simple to make, it’s also delicious.

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a bread pan with butter, coat with parchment paper and set aside. If you don’t have any oat flour – fear not. Just pulse regular rolled oats in a food processor to desired consistency. Remove the oat flour, then use the same food processor to chop up walnuts and shred your carrots. We’re taking the lazy route. 😉

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, walnuts, flax seeds, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs with yogurt and vanilla. Stir in melted butter and shredded carrots until well incorporated. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry mix and stir until just combined. Fold in the raisins and transfer the batter to a prepared bread pan and even out with a spatula.

Bake for 1 hour, until skewer inserted in the bread comes out clean (a crumb or two are also quite alright). Leave the bread to cool completely in its pan before removing and slicing. This bread will keep for up to five days if stored in an airtight container and refrigerated and it also freezes great.

Znam što si sada mislite – blagdani su završili pred tri sekunde, a ova luda žena stavlja recepte za kolače! Ali ovo je više kruh nego što je kolač, te se također nalazi na zdravijoj strani spektra. Tako da vam je dopušteno – ne, ne, čak vas se i potiče na to – da ovu divotu grickate za doručak. A pošto je istovariti smjesu u kalup za kruh najlakša stvar na svijetu, u svega par minuta pripremiti ćete si doručak za dosta dana unaprijed.

Jesam vas već uvjerila da ispobate ovaj recept? Nadam se da da, jer je ovaj kruh ne samo jednostavan i lagan za pripremiti, već i jako ukusan.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 štrucu / 29,17 kn)

Za tijesto:

1 šalica zobenog brašna (1,50 kn)

1 šalica integralnog brašna (0,75 kn)

1 šalica sjeckanih oraha (7,50 kn)

½ šalice mljevenih sjemenki lana (2,00 kn)

½ šalice smeđeg šećera (1,50 kn)

1 šalica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

½ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 šalica jogurta (2,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

4 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (4,00 kn)

2 šalice ribane mrkve (2,50 kn)

1 šalica grožđica (3,00 kn)

Dodatno:

Maslac za namastiti kalup (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Maslacem namastite kalup za kruh, obložite papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. Ne brinite ako nemate zobenog brašna. Samo propulsirajte obične zobene pahuljice u multipraktiku do željenje konzistencije. Taj isti multipraktik iskoristite i za sjeckanje oraha i ribanje mrkve. Idemo lijenom rutom. 😉

U velikoj zdjeli pomiješajte oba brašna, orahe, lan, šećer, prašak za pecivo, sodu bikarbonu i sol. U drugoj zdjeli razmutite jaja sa jogurtom i vanilijom. Umiješajte rastopljeni maslac i ribane mrkve da se sjedine. Prelijte mokre sastojke preko suhih i miješajte samo onoliko koliko treba da smjesa bude jednolična. Na kraju nježno umiješajte grožđice i preselite smjesu u pripremljeni kalup, te poravnajte špatulom.

Pecite 1 sat, dok štapić upiknut u kruh ne bude čist (mrvica – dvije su isto u redu). Ostavite da se kruh skroz ohladi prije nego što ga maknete iz kalupa i razrežete. Kruh će držati do pet dana u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi u hladnjaku, a također se i super smrzava.
