Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 vegetable oil
  •  half an 8-ounce can crushed pineapple, drained (about 1/4 cup)

  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease an 8×4 inch loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

  • In a separate bowl, lightly beat the egg and egg white.  Add carrots, oil, pineapple, and vanilla.  Mix thoroughly.

  • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until just combined.  The batter will be very thick.  Fold in pecans.
