Gluten Free Pumpkin Quick Bread
Dubbed at the best pumpkin bread, from the looks of the recipe, I can see why they set the bar so high. Made with almond flour, it has wholesome ingredients without being too heavy on the fat. Looks like a great option to try.
This recipe sounds delicious and has the versatility I absolutely love. It looks a bit more dense than other recipes, but the heartiness is to be embraced in this recipe. It’s not intended to be light and fluffy. Subbing honey or other sweetener should not be a problem in this one.
With one of the least amounts of flour I’ve seen in a bread recipe, this paleo pumpkin bread really hits the nail on the head for being nearly flour-free. With an increased egg count and boost in spices, it is a really good spin for this full of flavor bread.
As a cross between a cake and bread, this pumpkin bread is a moist slice of perfection. Heavy on the flavor, but also dairy free, it hits the spot when you crave a tender bread.
With a different twist on a recipe, this one is a ‘publisher experiment’. All that means is that the publisher has an existing recipe, but might change it up according to the reader comments. But with the spices, honey and smaller ratio of flour, it already looks like a winner.
Pumpkin and chocolate chips… need I say more? It really is a spectacular combination. According to the publisher, the chocolate chips could easily be swapped for some dried cranberries (delicious) or cherries (again, delicious). Plus this recipe is low in sugar.
The name says it all – low sugar. Because lowering our sugar intake is important for a number of reasons, this recipe gets my thumbs up for being low in sugar and loaded with delicious spices. The fact that it has coconut flour is all the more reason to give this one a try.
"Gluten free foods taste amazing... you just have to reference the right recipes."

This is an interesting recipe as it uses an ingredient called coconut manna. Described as buttery, but with a slight coconut flavor, coconut manna sounds like something I must try! The bread is moist and the cranberry is a tart addition that you will love.

This pumpkin bread is free of all the common allergens, but big on taste. The interesting thing about it is it uses all coconut flour, not a mix of other flours. A healthy dose of eggs and a touch of maple syrup and you have a pumpkin bread you might not want to let cool to room temperature!
