Paleo Pumpkin Bread Recipe
Yield: 1 loaf
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour and 15 minutes
Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on the sides.
Whisk the flours, spices, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk pumpkin, eggs, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla. Pour wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan and sprinkle with pumpkin seeds.
Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 20 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
