PUMPKIN BREAD (WFPB)
Updated: May 28
A simple whole food plant based loaf with minimal ingredients. It's a one-bowl fall classic that's good any time of the year!
Serve for a snack, healthy dessert or toast some for breakfast with nut-butter and fresh berries for a delicious breakfast!
Serves: 1 loaf, about 8-10 slices - you decide how thick you want it, don't put that shit on me.
2 cups of flour (whole wheat or 1:1 gluten-free blend)
1/2 cup coconut or cane sugar
1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice (or 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp allspice, pinch of cloves)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1-2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened plant milk (almond is what I use)
1/3 cup applesauce
1 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin filling)
handful of pumpkin seeds
Preheat your oven to 350 F, lightly grease loaf pan or prep a silicon pan.
In a medium bowl combine flour, sugar, spices and salt. Whisk that shit together - no bullshit lumps or anything.
In a large measuring cup mix together the vanilla, almond milk, applesauce, and pumpkin puree. Mix that all together till it's smooth-as-fuck.
Combine the wet and dry - mix well, but DON'T over mix anymore than you have to if you wanna keep it light and fucking beautiful. Pour it into a loaf pan and SMACK that shit against the counter to knock out all the bubbles.
Top the loaf with pumpkin seeds. Bake for 55-60 minutes. Let it cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from the pan. Once removed let it cool slightly on a wire rack before slicing.
Eat it for breakfast, a snack, or a dessert. However you do it SMASH IT into your mouth.
Cool before storing. Keep covered on a counter for 2-3 days, otherwise freeze.
Feel free to also add some chopped walnuts or pecans if you'd like. Hell, sprinkle a little extra coconut sugar on top if you wanna make it a little more treaty.
Can also add a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips if you want to make it more of a dessert.
