This loaf is super healthy and delicious. Great for breakfast or a snack and its tastes amazing with a smear of butter on it. This can also be made into muffins.
The addition of the yoghurt gives that lovely moist consistency and the butter can be completely eliminated but I find the addition of that bit of butter does add to the flavour.
Honey completely replacing the need for any refined sugar making it so much healthier. And the addition of almond flour reduces the amount of plain flour needed making this lower in carb content.
This is a healthy way to incorporate some carrots which are good for fussy eaters and helps keep everyone fuller for longer.
The walnuts are purely optional. If anyone at home has a nut allergy, you can replace it with some raisins or sultanas and also completely replace the almond flour with plain flour instead.
