Recipe Swap Friday–Grain Free Pumpkin Bread

Hi, Friends! So glad you’ve joined us for our Recipe Swap Friday.

For the next few weeks, we’re sharing treats that are just-sweet-enough. Mine will be sweetened with alternative sweeteners (honey, agave nectar, coconut sugar…..) but yours can be any treat that’s not-too-sweet.

Join me? As usual, you can link up to your favorite recipe below, either on your blog or in your Plan to Eat account. If linking up to your Plan to Eat account, just cut and paste the url from the recipe in your recipe book.

This week I’m bringing:

This bread was a winner in lots of ways. Foremost, it is gluten-free, and easily adapted to be dairy free (I used grapeseed oil instead of butter). Second, it has absolutely no sweetener in it. Nada. I was disappointed in this at first, but then realized it was the perfect foil for a smear of pumpkin butter, which made it just delicious.

If I was going to be making this to be served by itself as a treat, I’d consider adding some honey or agave nectar to sweeten it up just a bit. But I loved it just like it was for breakfast.

For those of you who are familiar with such things, this recipe (as written, not with my suggested adaptations) is SCD (and I think GAPS?) compliant.

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Line a 4×8″ loaf tin with parchment paper.
  3. Combine the almond flour with the baking soda and salt. In another bowl whisk the eggs with the butter and add the remaining ingredients. Combine the almond flour with the egg mixture. Pour the dough into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 1 hour, until the top of the loaf feels firm. Remove from the oven and cool completely. Store in the refrigerator.

I really want this to be easy and accessible to everyone, so leave me a comment if you have trouble. I’ll do my best to help you out.
