Flourless Apple Carrot Breakfast Bread

This festive, flourless apple carrot breakfast bread is full of nutritious and delicious produce! Feel free to experiment with your favorite add-ins such as berries, dried fruit, nuts, and if you’re feeling really wild, dark chocolate chips. 🙂

This bread doesn’t work in a large loaf pan, the center won’t get fully cooked. I recommend these adorable mini loaf pans. It also works great using muffin tins, in which case I recommend these silicone muffin liners.

This Flourless Apple Carrot Breakfast Bread Is:

  • Hearty
  • Healthy
  • Full of warming fall spices
  • Easy to make
  • Delicious
  • Versatile
  • Great to make ahead
  • Freezer-friendly

Servings 4



  • 1 cup instant oats*, 4 oz

Fruit & Veggies

  • 1 cup grated carrot, 4-5 oz
  • 1 cup grated apple, 4-5 oz
  • 2-3 bananas, mashed, 10 oz
  • 1/2 cup fresh, dried, or frozen berries, 5-6 oz


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts, 4 oz
  • 1/4 cup nut butter of choice, 2 oz


  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg


  • Preheat the oven to 375° F. Lightly grease mini loaf pans or line with parchment paper. I recommend mini loaf pans or muffin tins for this recipe, so that they cook all the way through more easily. The flourless batter is dense, so with large loaf pans you can end up with gooey batter on the inside, no matter how long you bake it.
  • Mash the banana, eggs, and nut butter together until smooth.
  • Grate the carrot and apple and stir it into the mixture along with the oats, nuts, any additional fruit, and spices.
  • Bake for 25 – 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Allow the bread to cool for 30 minutes and transfer to a wire rack.
  • Slice into 4 equal servings. Store in an airtight container or freeze.


  • I use instant oats because they are more absorbent than rolled oats and produce a better texture in baked goods. You can make your own by pulsing rolled oats in a food processor until they are like a coarse flour.

  1. Hi Katie! How are you counting the muffins for BLE? 1 muffin for breakfast? Thanks!! Jacke

    • You can divide the whole recipe into 4 servings, and each serving will be a complete BLE breakfast. How many muffins or loaves that will be depends on the size of the tins you use.

  13. I love this recipe, Katie, although it’s definitely labor-intense. So worth it though. I have a question about the amount of nuts – when I weighed out 4 ounces of walnuts, it was way more than half a cup. More like a cup, in fact. I generally like to use weights so I dirty up fewer utensils, but in this case 1 cup of walnuts seemed like too much to me and I used half a cup. I’m not doing BLE so the amounts don’t matter so much, but I was just curious what you do when you make these – by weight or by dry measure? Thanks as always for your wonderful recipes.

      Hi Andi, I’m sorry I’m just now seeing this comment, I’m not sure how it slipped by my radar. Yeah the walnut volume will vary depending on how finely chopped the walnuts are. I use small walnut pieces. Glad you went with your intuition and reduced the amount.

    Just made these. Muffins. Baked 20 min.
    2 Questions.
    1: Do you squeeze excess juice from apples?
    2: Have you ever substituted zuchinni for apples?
    😊 Tyvm

      Hi! Yep, I love using zucchini, but I would add some sugar or liquid sweetener. You’ll want to use real egg, rather than any vegan substitutes, or it won’t bind well. I don’t squeeze excess juice, but with zucchini I might if it’s particularly juicy.
