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!
