Paleo Morning Glory Bread is one of my favorite breakfast treats. It’s packed full of carrots, fruits and nuts and has a sweet, moist, dense flavor. Enjoy it for breakfast or anytime you want a delicious treat.
The best thing about this bread is it contains lots of delicious nutrients and not much sweetener. There’s only 1/4 cup of coconut sugar in the whole recipe. The fruit and carrots make it naturally sweet.
It’s also versatile. The recipe can be made with apples or pears. They can be chopped or shredded. Do whatever is easiest for you. If chopped you’ll see a few pieces of the fruit when you slice the bread. In the photos I used apples and shredded them. I find it’s easier. But I’ve also made it with chopped pears and apples.
For the dried fruit you can choose raisins, dried cranberries or chopped dates. The first few times I made the bread, the dried fruit stuck together in certain parts. Now I add the dried fruits into the flour and mix to separate the pieces. In the photo I used dried cranberries I had left over from the holidays.
I came across this bread on the internet from Wholesome Delicious. I love bread and this one looked so good I had to give it a try.
The first time I made it the texture was too crumbly for me. After extensive testing (like, 6 batches) I finally came up with a recipe that holds together very well when you slice it. It’s the 1/4 cup of tapioca flour that makes the difference.
There is a little bit of prep for this bread, I won’t deny it. Shredding carrots, chopping or shredding apples melting coconut oil and measuring flours. But once everything is measured and chopped it comes together easily. No mixer is required.
Whisk together the eggs, coconut sugar and coconut oil. Mix together the dry ingredients, add the wet ingredients and pour into a prepared loaf pan.
DON’T OVER MIX the batter. It sometimes makes holes if too much air gets in.
I prefer to oil my loaf pan with coconut oil, but you can line it with parchment paper if that’s easier for you. I put my oiled loaf pan into the refrigerator while I’m mixing the batter. The oil stays better on the sides making it easier to remove from the pan once it’s baked.
RELAX. Give the bread time to cool before you slice it. Let it sit at least 15 minutes before you remove it from the pan. Then let it rest 30 minutes before slicing. It will still be warm enough to spread with grass fed butter if you want. Oh is that good!
This Paleo Morning Glory Bread is definitely a recipe I’ll keep on making. It’s the perfect weekend brunch treat for the whole family. Sunday morning warm bread (heated up in the toaster oven) with a little butter, or almond butter, life is good!

I have made this recipe so many times and it is always delicious. What a great option for a healthier bread to have with your morning coffee! I agree that the original recipe ( which I also made) was a bit dry. Almond flour is perhaps the driest when baking with alternative flour. Adding the tapioca flour was an improvement. I have also reduced the coconut oil to 1/4 cup and added half of a ripe avocado. This was delicious and added a bit more moisture. I have also used a very ripe banana (about 1/4 cup) which also made the bread less dry. Great recipe!
Thanks Elaine for all your fabulous suggestions. You’re a very creative cook. Happy Cooking!
Loved it. Thank you
Thanks Nick, I’m glad you found it to be yummy!
