Paleo Pumpkin Bread
Makes 1 small loaf, a dozen muffins, or 8 little cakes

Ingredients
  • A little shy of 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 of a very ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup raw honey (or omit & add 2 more dates for sugar free)
  • 1/2 cup cashew butter (or any other nut or seed butter)
  • 4 dates, pitted
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • A dash of sea salt
  • Pumpkin seeds, to top
Preparation

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. 

In a blender, combine pumpkin, banana, honey, nut butter, dates, eggs, and vanilla. Blend until very smooth. (You may need to unstick the dates from the blade a couple times.) 

Next, add the remaining ingredients and blend until a semi-thick batter forms. 

Pour into the greased pan or dish or tin that you’re using, top with a few pumpkin seeds, and bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. 

Enjoy with butter, ghee, coconut spread, or just plain Jane.
