Carrot Quick Bread with Cream Cheese Frosting

This bread is rich in protein. Oats provide soluble fiber, and carrots contribute betacarotene. Slice the entire loaf, wrap slices individually in foil, and freeze for up to a month. Toss a slice in your briefcase - when you get to work, it should be thawed.

Gradually add flour mixture, stirring just until blended. Fold in carrot and raisins. Spoon batter into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray.
