Mmmmm. I can’t even explain how delicious this loaf is! It’s like a mix between carrot cake and apple pie! Now, I did have to make a few changes to make this loaf keto but it really tasted amazing!
In the original Morning Glory muffin, they usually add raisins. You can add them too, but I hate them so I left them out. Secondly, the basic muffin uses shredded apple. Since apples are high in sugars, I swapped it out for zucchini. Feel free to add a few squeezes of lemon or even some apple extract to add some tartness to the loaf.
For this recipe, I used an average size carrot and zucchini and shredded them by hand. I don’t recommend buying pre-shredded carrots or zucchini because they are thicker and won’t really cook into the loaf.
In addition, I recommend to follow this recipe to a T – I say this because if you add too much liquid, no matter how long you cook it, the inside will be soggy and feel undercooked.
Now you don’t have to make this into a loaf. You can also make them into muffins and they will still be equally as delicious.
