I was having a bowl of granola the other day but I was also thinking about carrot cake at the same time! Yes, thinking about food while having food...oh, 'si gente' yes people, I have those moments (do you have those kind of moments too?! or is it just me?!)... I love food too much and that's my explanation for it. However, that's how the 'Carrot Granola Bread' idea came along and make my day very- very happy! The end. Oh, what a sweet tale, Aldy! Or may be I should have named this blog post; 'The Happy Tale of Aldy and The Carrot Granola Sweet bread'... (ha,ha, ha Ok.enough fooling around :) )  


Now, about this recipe; this bread has the taste of a carrot cake and the addition of the pecans and walnuts make it crunchy + moist but did I mention that you can also add almonds, and other seeds; like sunflowers seeds or pumpkin seeds?! Yes, you can! Feel totally free to add and combine your favorite nuts and seeds to this bread. Now over and out to eat an slice of carrot granola bread.

Wishing you a wonderful + pretty + GREAT EASTER! Relax + have fun + drink a Chai latte or just do some baking!
