This pumpkin bread recipe is the reason I bought my Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind cookbook. I saw a picture of this bread on Instagram and followed the links back to the cookbook author’s page. I scrolled through her pictures for a few minutes, then clicked on the link in her profile and bought the book on Amazon. It came a few days later, and this recipe was the first one I tried.
The first time I made this recipe, I didn’t have the proper ingredients. I made it with regular almond flour instead of fine ground, and I used regular sugar instead of coconut sugar (because I just wanted to make something out of this cookbook so bad and I couldn’t find the ingredients without making a special trip to the “fancy” grocery store in town). Obviously, the bread didn’t turn out as well as it could since I was subbing ingredients, but it was pretty good.
This time, I followed the recipe exactly. You will need a food processor for this recipe, so make sure that you have all the correct equipment before you begin. I would definitely recommend getting the fine ground almond flour, because it makes the texture of the bread better.
The bread is still a little heavy and dense, but overall it is really good. I don’t think this one could trick someone into believing it was not Paleo, though (the cookies I made last week were THAT GOOD!).
