It's that time of year for all the pumpkin things! I look forward to making pumpkin bread every year. This year I googled what was the most popular pumpkin bread and the top recipe has 3 cups of sugar - I repeat THREE cups in ONE loaf of bread! Why oh WHY on earth would you ever want something with that much sugar? There is NO reason ever to have 3 cups of sugar in one loaf of bread. That's absurd and quite possibly, what is wrong with today's weight issues. This recipe is gluten-free (if you want it to be), low on sugar and absolutely delicious! Please see notes below.*
7 oz cup of Buckwheat Flour
8 oz of Oat Flour * (see notes)
2 teas baking powder
3 heaping teas of pumpkin spice
1 teas of Ceylon Cinnamon
4 oz brown sugar
15 oz - Pumpkin
4 oz grass fed butter - room temp
2 oz almond milk (no additives)
Chocolate Chips or Chunks - 1 cup and extra for topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix dry ingredients
Mix eggs, sugar, pumpkin and butter together
Add-in dry ingredients into wet
Mix until fluffy
Add-in 2 oz of almond milk
Mix - batter should be fluffy
Add-in Chocolate Chips/Chunks
Top with Chocolate Chips
Pour into your bread loaf pan. I use unbleached parchment with mine.
Bake for 35-40 minutes until knife comes out clean.
Cool slightly but then feel free to grab a coffee and enjoy!
I do not normally post recipes until I have pictures I am happy with. However, I have had so many emails for this and DMs from my Insta-Story Sneak Peak that I'm posting now. Pictures will be replaced when ready. You're welcome! ;)
I am obsessed with Buckwheat Flour right now, which is not wheat, but a fruit seed relating to rhubarb. I also love oat flour, which is gluten-free, as well as buckwheat. If you don't want or need gluten-free - spelt flour is my favorite flour to bake with. Spelt is very gentle on your system, digests well and is delicious!
As always - Ingredients Matter! Never think your ingredients do not matter. Food matters more than your new 'improved' iPhone or anything else!
I use organic and non-GMO ingredients - always!
