Recipe: Paleo Pumpkin Bread

Nothing screams “fall” like the smell of fresh pumpkin bread wafting from the oven. This lusciously moist, gluten free, grain-free and dairy free Paleo pumpkin bread is made with almond flour. Happy Halloween!

I want to enjoy pumpkin bread as much as the next person, but without a gluten bomb in my stomach. I don’t know about you, but when I eat gluten, I feel like I ate a brick. Solve that gluten sensitivity problem with a loaf of Paleo pumpkin bread made with high protein almond flour!

Canned pumpkin puree often lends a raw, metallic flavor to pumpkin bread. I prefer using all fresh ingredients and roasting fresh pumpkin. Yes, it doubles the time it takes to make the bread, but it will taste so much better! And you can roast some extra pumpkin and eat it for dinner.
