Blog Post/Carrot Banana "k.r.a.c.n.o.l.a" Loaf

This was an easy recipe for Carrot & Banana Loaf. I decided to add a bag of K.r.a.c.n.o.l.a on top of the cake batter, after I placed it in my loaf pan.This one's a keeper,the crunchy bits of almonds,cashews, rasins,& cranberries really took this already delicious recipe to the next level.I love incorporating k.r.a.c.n.o.l.a into other recipes.So stay tuned as I create/share more fun things to make with K.r.a.c.n.o.l.a.....This is the recipe that i used.I omitted the pecans since k.r.a.c.n.o.l.a has an abundance of nuts.I love tweaking recipes,feel free to substitute applesauce for the eggs,no worries the applesauce will keep the cake moist.Enjoy!
