How to make Pumpkin Bread Loaf

 


It’s Fall and each morning I get up the air seems crisper and colder. Cold enough for me to want to stay inside, wrap myself up in blankets, and just enjoy a warm treat. This was so much the fact this morning that I ended up making some warm and delicious pumpkin bread to start my day off. It’s almost like a protein bar for us keto-ers that seem to have little to no time in the morning.

Grab a slice or two, a slab of butter, and walk out the door while chomping on bliss! It’s very dense, so that means it’s extremely filling too. You just need a slice or two and you’re set for the day ahead of you.


THE PREPARATION

1 ½ cup almond flour

3 large egg whites

½ cup pumpkin puree

½ cup coconut milk (from the carton)

¼ cup psyllium husk powder

¼ cup Swerve sweetener

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (recipe here)

½ teaspoon kosher salt


THE EXECUTION

1. Measure out all dry ingredients into a sifter. If you don’t have a sifter, you can grab one on the cheap from Amazon.

2. Sift all ingredients into a large bowl. Preheat your oven to 350F. Fill a 9×9 baking dish with about 1 cup of water and place on the bottom rack of the oven.

3. Add pumpkin puree and coconut milk and mix together well. You should have a pretty resistant dough by the time you finish mixing.

4. Whip the egg whites in a second bowl. If needed, add some cream of tartar to the egg whites to keep them stable.

5. Aggressively fold in 1/3 of the egg whites to the dough so that some of the moisture is absorbed. Then, add the rest of the egg whites and gently fold into the dough.

6. Grease a standard bread loaf pan well (with either butter or coconut oil). Then, spread the dough into the bread pan.

 

7. Bake the bread for 75 minutes. Optionally add 1/4 cup pistachios (I prefer it without the pistachios, so I left them out of the recipe)

8. Remove loaf from the oven and let cool.

9. Slice and serve!
