  • 1/2 teaspoon - baking powder
  • 1/2 cup - macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 cup - walnuts
  • 1/2 cup - pecans
  • 1/3 cup - golden raisins
  • 3 large brown eggs
  • 3/4 cup - vegtable oil
  • 1/3 cup - pineapple
  • 2 cup -  shreeded CARROTS (i use the kind used for salads that they sell in the produce department)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon - cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup - honey
  • 1/2 cup - dark brown sugar
  • 2 cup - all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon - salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon - ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon - baking soda
  • 2 teaspoon - vanilla extract
  • 1 cup - rolled oats


preheat oven to 325 degrees


mix togther flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large mising bowl. once throughly mixed mix in the oats LAST!

whixk the eggs till fuffy, add oil and vanilla and mix well.

make well in the middle of the dry parts, pour in the honey into the dry ingredents then mix in the wet. mix till all is wet

add the raisins and nuts, the nuts can be in any condition you would like; chopped whole or milled leave some whole for a nice little suprize through out the bread., mix well. Then ad the pinapple (i drink the juice after wards becuase one, yum, and two it will make the bread to moist, don't use the kind in syrup or it will taste too sweet and that ruins the point of honey rather then sugar and again no juice if you use the kind in syrup) and mix very well.

finally add the carrots but do not over mix it lightly, spread it through out it but not so much that the carrots are not vissible,

at this point the dough will not look that appitising.... but it gets better!

pour into a prepaired 9x5 loaf pan (our like 2 of those disposible ones from the store) lightly buttered.


bake in the center of the oven for 55=65 minites, till a toothpick or a knife comes out mostly clean, there should be a film but not actual batter. DO NOT REMOVE BREAD FORM PAN!!! cover it with a towel , tuck it in like a child, and let sit for roughly 15=20 minutes to alow it to sit properly.  


slice into about 3/4 inch slices and serve with butter or cream cheese.   


for muffins add more pine apple and not as dry as you would for bread, smaller volume so it can get cooked good ennough to set.

try topping it with a trail of pecans or walnuts



preheat oven 325o

mix dry, oats last

mix wet with out honey

make well in dry, pour in honey then wet,

mix well

add nuts and raisins

add pineapple and carrots mix lightly

pour, bake for an hour, let cool covered in pan.


be happy!


also if you use whole wheat flour like i do be sure to use the pineapple, it is normally optional but if you don't the bread will be VERY dry.

don't use pam on your cooking pan either, i had some left over from thanksgiving and it ruined the crust.
