This healthy pumpkin bread recipe is great for kids and adults alike.
Pumpkins are a staple during Halloween and provide great health benefits. Pumpkins are packed with vitamin A, which is great for our eyes, vitamin C, which is great for the immune system, and beta-carotene, which is great for our skin and eyes.
I have made muffins using pumpkin in the past but never attempted bread. This recipe could not be simpler. It’s sweet (pumpkin is so versatile!), soft, moist and scrumptious! And it will not fail you. The loaf just slides straight out of the pan and is ready for slicing (and eating) asap. Hope you enjoy making it as much as I enjoyed eating it!
Spiced Pumpkin Bread Recipe
Ingredients↬1 cup of almond meal
↬3 large eggs
↬½ cup peeled, boiled and pureed pumpkin
↬¼ cup raw honey
↬4 tbsp coconut oil
↬1 tsp baking soda
↬1 tsp cinnamon
↬½ tsp nutmeg
↬½ tsp ground ginger
Preheat your oven to 180⁰C
Using either a hand mixer or a food processor (I used the latter) – combine all ingredients at room temperature either in a large bowl or directly into food processor.
Pour the batter into a greased and lined loaf tin (I used coconut oil to grease my pan and the parchment) – guarantees no sticking!
Sprinkle the top with nuts and seeds of your choice. I used a combination of pecans and walnuts.
Bake for approximately 40 minutes – making sure the center is not dry.
Remove from oven and allow to cool before turning out from pan, and you can then slice it and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a week.
