Healthy Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread

Who doesn't love pumpkin? What about pumpkin bread?

You've probably had many versions over the years. I had a craving so the other week, I set out to develop a gluten free recipe that used more natural sweeteners like maple syrup and coconut sugar. The flour mixture includes both coconut and almond flours, studded with spices.

I added walnuts once and that was a nice touch, but they're not required. The bread is moist and delicious, makes your kitchen smell heavenly while it bakes, and it's filling and delicious.

I heartily recommend eating your slice with grassfed butter.

Don't skimp on the butter.

Lots of butter.

Healthy Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread
Makes one loaf
Baking time: one hour
Gluten Free; dairy free (contains eggs)

1 cup all purpose gluten free flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup pumpkin puree (organic canned is what I used)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut sugar (plus more to sprinkle on top)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
chopped walnuts (optional)

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the GF flour, almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and salt. Stir to combine well & set aside.

3. Then in another mixing bowl, combine the eggs, pumpkin puree, olive oil, maple syrup, coconut sugar and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and stir to combine (don't over beat). Fold in the walnuts if desired.

4. Transfer the mixture to a greased bread loaf pan. Smooth to distribute evenly and sprinkle the top with coconut sugar. Back for about fifty minutes to one hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Serve warm with grassfed butter. Enjoy!
