Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Bread


§ Ingredients

  • One (1) cup cooked and mashed pumpkin (canned or fresh).

  • Three (3) eggs.

  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest.

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil.

  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon.

  • 3 tablespoons honey.

  • 1 12 cup almond flour or almond meal.

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder.

  • 2 tablespoons cocoa.

§ Procedure

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In one bowl combine the almond flour or meal with the baking powder. In a second bowl mix the remaining ingredients with a hand whisk. First mix the contents of the two bowls in a single bowl, and then separate the batter into two bowls mixing the cocoa into the second one. Line an 8.5 X 4 inch loaf pan with parchment. Alternately add spoonfuls of batter with and without the cocoa to the loaf pan achieving a marble pattern. Place in preheated oven and bake approximately 38 – 45 minutes or until done as indicated by a clean toothpick. Allow to cool before slicing.

§ Notes from Joan

  • I prefer to use almond meal which is very reasonable at Trader Joe’s and is also available at Wegman’s.

  • Bars are incredibly moist and satisfying. People would never guess that they are so healthy!
