Paleo Pumpkin Bread

Ingredients

2 cups almond meal

½ cup coconut flour

1 tbsp baking powder

2 tsp mixed spice

1/3 cup chopped walnuts

2 tbsp pumpkin seeds

½ cup mashed or pureed pumpkin

1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla essence

3 tbsp maple syrup or honey (optional)

 

 

Method

Line a rectangular baking tin with baking paper and grease lightly. Place aside.

Combine almond meal, coconut flour, baking powder and mixed spice in a bowl and mix well.

Add walnuts to the bowl and mix well.

In a separate bowl add in eggs and beat lightly.

Add the melted coconut oil to the egg mixture and stir to combine.

Add in vanilla essence and honey or maple syrup and stir well.

Gradually add the wet ingredients to the bowl of dry ingredients and stir until combined.

Pour the ingredients into the baking tin and place in a preheated oven at 160 degrees celcius for 30 to 40 minutes. To test place a skewer in the centre of the bread. The bread is ready when the skewer comes out clean.

When cooked remove from the oven and place on a cooling tray. Leave to cool for 1 hour and slice with a serrated knife.

May be enjoyed on it’s own or with organic butter or nut butter.
