- Makes 1 loaf
- 1 cup (92 grams) finely ground blanched almond flour
- 1/4 cup (35 grams) coconut flour
- 1 teaspoon (3 grams) ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon (3 grams) baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon (2 grams) fine sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon homemade pumpkin pie spice, or store-bought
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 cup (150 grams) coconut sugar
- 1/2 cup (120 ml) canned pumpkin purée
- 1/3 cup (80 ml) coconut oil, melted
- 3 tablespoons (45 ml) canned full-fat coconut milk
- 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and seeds scraped, or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 large eggs
- Coconut whipped cream, for serving (optional)
- 1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (162°C). Adjust an oven rack to the middle position. Line a 9-by-5-inch (23-by-13-cm) glass or metal loaf pan with parchment paper.
- 2. In the bowl of a large food processor, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice, cloves, and coconut sugar. Pulse 10 times or until mixed. Add the pumpkin, coconut oil, coconut milk, vanilla bean seeds or extract, and eggs. Process until combined, 20 to 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides and process again if needed.
- 3. Use a rubber spatula to scrape the mixture into the parchment-lined loaf pan. If using a metal loaf pan, bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. If using a glass loaf pan, bake for 70 to 75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- 4. Let the pumpkin bread cool in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Then run a knife around the sides of the pan to loosen the bread. Remove the loaf from the pan by lifting the parchment paper. Let cool completely on the wire rack before slicing. Serve each slice with a dollop of coconut whipped cream, if desired. The pumpkin bread will keep beautifully when wrapped in plastic wrap at room temperature for up to 3 days.
