This pumpkin bread is a healthier twist on my grandmother's pumpkin bread recipe that I ate growing up. I swapped some of the ingredients for healthier alternatives, but it tastes just as good!

Instead of using white flour, I used organic unbleached all purpose flour.

Instead of using white sugar, I used coconut sugar since it's lower on the glycemic index.

I swapped the eggs for flax eggs and used avocado (or olive oil) in place of vegetable oil. I also used a lot less it.

This recipe will make 3 smaller loaves or 2 bigger ones in a normal loaf pan.

  • Preheat oven to 300° F. This batter will make 2 large loaves or 3 small loaves. Make the flax eggs first in a small bowl and set aside while you get the other ingredients in a large bowl. Add the flax eggs in last and mix everything together. 
  • Line loaf pans with parchment paper or oil them. Spread the batter evenly, filling about half way up. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Allow the bread to completely cool before serving. Store leftovers in fridge up to a week. Freeze extra for longer.
