So my To Do lists are thorough, detailed, and thoughtfully crafted. My execution of the To Do lists is subpar. Ok, not even subpar. Like nonexistent. I haven’t done anything to prepare for my trip. Maybe I’m a bit overwhelmed by my To Do list. Maybe I don’t even know where to start.

Packing for Cali is nowhere near done. Unless casually thinking about it counts (it doesn’t). Tomorrow is the day. Things will be done tomorrow. Preparatory packing piles will be created. Costumes will be sewed. Eyebrows will be waxed. Items will WILL be crossed off.

Well, pumpkin bread was on my list, so I suppose I can go check that one off! canigetawhoopwhoop.

Pumpkin Bread

I have a hard time with pumpkin bread. Probably because I’ve had some seriously delicious pumpkin bread and muffins in my life and so to make a gluten free one that measures up is quite the feat. My goal was to make it moist and have that iconic pumpkin flavor. You know those breads that you scarf down with your coffee can eat for breakfast? The ones that are perfect with a glass of cold milk or coffee or almond milk? Yep. That’s what this is. A perfect breakfast, lunch, snack, dessert, any time of day bread. 

True test: Jaryd just came home from work. Went straight to the kitchen. Ate it the pumpkin bread and exclaimed with delight about its deliciousness. No joke, this just happened. He exclaimed.

If your autumn spirit is vibing hard this year, mine is in FULL SWING!! You have to try these pumpkin roll cookies, these pumpkin blondies, and these pumpkin truffles. You won’t regret it. 

Here’s how you make this perfect Pumpkin Bread:

Using a standing electric mixer, mix together the pumpkin, eggs, 1/2 cup coconut sugar, coconut oil, agave nectar, and vanilla until smooth. Add the almond flour, cassava flour, baking soda, baking powder, 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, ginger, and salt to the bowl. Turn on the electric mixer to mix in the dry ingredients for about 1 minute until combined. 

Pumpkin Bread

Line a 9×5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper. Transfer the batter into the bread pan and smooth it out into an even layer. Sprinkle the top with 1 tablespoon coconut sugar, 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, and the pumpkin seeds. 

Bake for 35 minutes or until it rises and a toothpick comes out clean.
