I've gone from making this blog private to public to private and back to public again.
I struggle with sharing my thoughts with the world as opposed to locking them up tight.
My Dad likes to tell this joke..."I'm a wigwam, I'm a tepee, I'm a wigwam, I'm a tepee. Relax man you're too tense (two tents.)" That's me. Too tense and wishy washy about my blog, but lately I have felt a real pull back to the words and the pictures and the thoughts. I've sat down several times and read old posts and have been so glad I got it all down. So many things I've written about would have been forgotten if not for this blog. So, for now, I'm back. I think. No seriously, I'm back...really I am.
Ready for an amazing Paleo Pumpkin Bread recipe? I posted a picture of this on my FB page the other day and several people asked for the recipe so I thought what better way to bring my blog out of hibernation than with this scrumptious treat.
1 Cup blanched Almond Flour (I use the Honeyville Farms brand)
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Pumpkin Spice
1/2 tsp Cloves
1/2 Cup Canned Pumpkin
1 tsp Vanilla (I use the Danncy brand, it's so good!)
4 Tbsp Honey
3 Lg Eggs
In a food processor combine almond flour, salt, baking soda, and spices.
Add pumpkin, vanilla, honey and eggs and pulse for 2 minutes.
Spray pans with nonstick spray (I use coconut oil spray)
Scoop batter in to two mini loaf pans (mine measure 3 1/2" x 6")
Bake at 350 for 35 - 45 minutes
Cool for 1 hour
K and I were wanting to bake something the other day and with it being "pumpkin everything" season we decided we would try to find a gluten free recipe for pumpkin bread. Ok, I decided we would find a gluten free pumpkin bread recipe. She just wanted to make something. :) So I came across Elana's Pantry a site with too many wonderful gluten free recipes to count. We didn't follow the directions (I never do ~ maybe that's why I've had some messes in the kitchen...hmmm?) Anyway, the above recipe is how I made the bread. You can find the original recipe here
Let me know if you try this bread and what you think.
