Ingredients

  • Avocado oil spray for the pan
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 (15oz can) pure pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup honey*
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse kosher salt (not fine salt)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a small loaf pan (8.5 X 4.5 inches) with parchment. Here's a good video that shows how. Lightly spray the lined pan with oil.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin puree, honey, vanilla and cinnamon.
  • Add the almond flour, kosher salt and baking soda. Whisk until smooth.
  • Using a rubber spatula, transfer the batter to the prepared pan. Gently tap the pan on the counter top to evenly distribute the batter.
  • Bake the bread until browned and set, and a toothpick inserted in its center comes out clean, 50-60 minutes.
  • Using the excess parchment paper strips as handles, carefully remove the bread from the pan and transfer it to a wire rack. Carefully remove the parchment, to allow air to circulate.
  • Cool the bread completely on the cooling rack, about 2 hours. Slice into 10 slices, and spread the slices on the rack, allowing them to cool for an additional 10 minutes or so.

A few readers have emailed me to say that this paleo pumpkin bread is not sweet enough for their taste. If you suspect this might be the case for you too, add an extra 1/4 cup of any granulated sweetener (sugar, coconut sugar, Swerve), or the equivalent in stevia.
