Fall Pumpkin Bread

Posted on October 16, 2019 at 6:10 PM

For all you Traditionalists (and non-traditional as well), what a great time of year to be in the Kitchen !!

I don't know about you, but baking is one of my favourite ways to keep the house cozy and save on incense (becuase really, fresh baking is the best scent!)

I thought I'd share one of my seasonal favourites.  It isn't completely gluten free as I like to share it the 'gluten-aware' or not.  You can always modify with a gluten free grain or alternative flour such as almond or potato starch.  Know that it may affect the consistancy and cooking time - and that's ok too! 

Serve warm with plenty of grassfed butter or coconut products to assimalate the fat-soluble vitamins and keep cozy from the inside :) 

1 cup melted coconut oil, cooled

2 eggs or 2 tsps soaked chia seeds

1 teaspoon vanilla powder or extract

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

1 15oz can if pumpkin pureé or fresh pureéd pumpkin or butternut squash

3 cups gluten-free baking mix such as Anita’s*

1/3 cup of local honey or maple syrup

1 Tbsp candied ginger, or raisins, or cranberries finely chopped

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

1 cups finely chopped apples such as Gala or your favourite local seasonal variety

½ teaspoon each cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, cardamon

¼ teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a  9x5-inch loaf pans or a muffin tin. 

In the bowl of a stand mixer, add sweetener, pumpkin puree, eggs, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil. Then beat together on low speed or in a large bowl with a spatula.

In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients.Carefully mix the dry mixture (preferably through a sifter to break up clumps) in small batches in to the wet ingredients.

Fold in the diced apples.

Pour into the two greased loaf pans.

Bake for 50-65 minutes, or until a toothpick stuck in the center comes out dry with out crumbs sticking. Let cool then place on a wire rack to finish cooling down to room temperature.

Cut in to portions and enjoy. Freezes well too for portion control.

Enjoy :)
