  • 7 Mini loaf pans (3x6)


  • 2 cups gluten free flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt I used fine sea salt
  • 1 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 14 ounce can pineapple, drained well and finely chopped A miny chopper or food processor will do a great job of this.
  • 1 cup walnuts, finely chopped
  • 2 cups finely grated carrots
  • 4 baby dutch carrots peeled, washed and sliced in half


  • Preheat oven to 325*F.
  • Grease mini loaf pans. (I used 7, 3x6 loaf pans but if your mini pans are smaller this recipe will yield more.)
  • In a medium sized bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment whisk together the oil, sugar and eggs until combined, for about 40 seconds or so. You'll want the eggs well incorporated.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until combined. 
  • Fold in the crushed pineapple, chopped walnuts and the grated carrots. Do not over mix.
  • Divide evenly into the prepared pans, filling the tins 3/4 full.
  • Place a carrot half diagonally over each loaf pan. (totally optional but so pretty when baked).
  • Bake in the preheated oven at 325*F for about 30 to 35 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • Place the pans on a cooling rack and allow to cool for about 30 minutes before releasing them from the pans.
  • To give them a little sheen, brush the loaves with some maple syrup or honey. 
  • Alternately you can brush the tops with some warmed apricot jam as this would also give them a lovely sheen.
  • Serve and enjoy!
