I love pumpkin bread!! Traditional pumpkin bread is loaded with grains, high in sugar, and contains a LOT of calories. I began to ponder how I could possibly change the ingredients of pumpkin bread to make it healthier without sacrificing flavor. Luckily my experiment worked and I have gotten everyone around me addicted to this delicious and (almost completely guilt free) pumpkin bread.
|Gather your ingredients before you begin to mix|
ingredients. It will be easier and help you
mix together ingredients quicker.
2 cups Almond Flour
1/2 cup Pumpkin Puree
1/4 cup Organic Agave Nectar (can substitute 1/4 cup honey but it will add more sugar)
2 Organic Eggs
2 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
3/4 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/3 cup Chocolate chips
|Mix the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients|
separately and then carefully combine them.
In a separate mixing bowl mix together 2 cups almond flour, 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, 3/4 tsp. baking soda, and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Lightly stir all ingredients together making sure they are well blended.
|1/3 cup of chocolate chips will add additional|
flavor and sweetness for all of those who
suffer from a chronic sweet tooth.
Gently fold the wet ingredients together with the dry ingredients and do not over mix.
Once the wet and dry ingredients have been thoroughly combined, but not over mixed you can add in 1/3 cup of chocolate chips if you desire to. Fold the chocolate chips into the batter without excessively stirring.
|Evening out the dough is important|
to ensure that the bread cooks evenly
all the way through.
|Nothing beats fresh homemade bread!!|
