Last fall my sister sent me a recipe for a paleo pumpkin bread that sounded pretty good, but when we both made it that week, we quickly learned that it was really good, something that’s not easy with paleo baked goods. Each of us baked it multiple times last fall, so when she reminded me of it again last week, I got so excited!
It’s maybe the easiest baking recipe of all time (mix everything and one bowl and bake) and has absolutely no grains or white sugar (only honey). It’s made with pretty much just nut butter, pumpkin, butter, eggs and spices. You would think it wouldn’t taste bread-y and delicious, but it magically does.
Trust me, and try it for yourself! We like to eat it with ghee and drizzled honey as a treat, or toasted with butter for breakfast.
Recipe originally found here.
– 1 cup of nut butter (I use almond)
– 3 large eggs
– ½ cup roasted pureed pumpkin (I use canned)
– ¼ cup honey (I tried using maple syrup once and the texture got totally messed up)
– 4 tbsp butter or ghee
– 1 tsp baking soda
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– ½ tsp nutmeg
– ½ tsp ground ginger
– Shelled pumpkin seeds for decoration (optional)
– Coconut oil or butter for loaf pan
– Preheat oven to 325
– Using a hand mixer, combine all ingredients at room temperature in a large mixing bowl.
– Pour the batter into your greased loaf pan
– Sprinkle the top with pumpkin seeds, nuts, or chocolate chips. Don’t mix them in!
– Bake for about 40 minutes, making sure the middle is just barely dry. (Paleo breads tend to either be very dry or very gooey)
– Let sit to cool, or eat warm with butter or coconut oil. Enjoy!
Oh my goodness, this recipe sounds amazing! I love pumpkin bread so I will definitely have to try this out!
looks amazing! definitely making this weekend 🙂
This looks delicious! I meant to comment on yesterday’s post but forgot! Just want you to know that I love your blog and the content. I read so many blogs, some that are hip and up with technology and some that are not as much. I love yours because it is real, and while I am not close to having a baby, I still find your posts (baby content or not) incredibly relatable. You talk about the good but are also not afraid to be real…like when you said that you didn’t want to posts pictures of your face in the last few weeks of your pregnancy. Or in yesterday’s post, talking about how it seems like everyone just pops back into their pre-baby bodies which is definitely not the norm. I just really appreciate your honesty and that you touch on all aspects of what it feels like to be a new mom.
As you keep popping back into post pregnancy life, I would love to see posts on what your workouts look like…how many times you go a week that is realistic. And if you and your husband split baby duties or if you guys adjusted who does what when it comes to household chores and just random stuff like that. So curious what home life looks like once you have a baby!!
Yay, I can’t wait to make this! I just found out I have to eat GF, so I’m pretty excited to see this recipe. Pumpkin bread is one of my favs.
You will love it. Let me know how it goes!
Yum! This looks amazing and has ingredients I can actually eat (well, sometimes anyway). Can’t wait to try it this fall!
Ahh yay! Enjoy it lady!
I don’t know what I was more drawn to, the butter of the bread 🙂 So excited for all the fall flavors to return!
Ha! I feel you on that. It’s even better with ghee!
that looks sooo yummy! thanks for sharing!
It’s the yummiest 🙂
This looks absolutely delicious, thank you for sharing the recipe.
Oooh just came across this and definitely going to make it ASAP!
I made it and it was delicious. However, last minute I realized I was out of honey so substituted honey with one ripened banana. Delicious!
Thank you for sharing.
That’s awesome! I will have to try that next time.
