Carrot & Walnut Loaf

Carrot and Walnut Loaf (12 slices at approx 3 points per slice)

1 ¾ cups self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ cup brown sugar
1 cup grated carrot
½ cup finely chopped walnuts
125g (½ cup) melted Olive Grove light spread
2 eggs, lightly beaten
125ml (½ cup) low fat milk
½ teaspoon vanilla essence

Preheat oven to 180°C and line a loaf tin with baking paper.

Sift flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a bowl. Add brown sugar, carrot, walnuts, melted Olive Grove , eggs, milk and vanilla.Mix all ingrdients until well combined. Pour mixture into prepared tin.

Bake for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool in tin for a couple of minutes before cooling on wire rack.

(Of course I love it spread with Laughing Cow Light Cream Cheese spread!)
