Carrot Apricot Bread

Today, along with the laundry & phone calls I decided to whip up a couple of these.  One to be sliced up for the kids lunches & the other for a friend who needing to increase her iron intake.  Did you know the dried apricots are a super source of iron?

Carrot Apricot Bread

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup ap flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup shredded carrot
1 cup apple sauce
2 eggs
1/4 cup veg. oil
2/3 cup diced dried apricots

Bake at 350 for approx. 45 - 50 mins.

Split dough into 2 loaf pans for best results.  If you'd like to switch it up into dessert just drizzle with a little apple glaze.

Apple glaze

1 cup icing sugar
4 tsp apple juice

* before drizzling, poke the top of each loaf all over with a toothpick for best results.

Hope you give it a's super good according to Anthony & Liam !!!
