Paleo Pumpkin Bread

Can’t get enough pumpkin recipes this fall? I know! October is pumpkin month around here.

This bread is a special paleo version. And for those new to paleo, this may not taste very sweet or like the classic pumpkin bread you are used to! But it is delicious served hot with butter or with a bowl of soup, such as Chicken Chili! 🙂Blog Paleo Pumpkin Bread

    I would love to make this pumpkin bread but my son has a tree nut allergy. Do you suppose this would work with coconut flour instead?

      Hi Sigrid! You certainly can use coconut flour instead, however the ratios are going to be different. I would not substitute coconut flour for almond flour 1:1. I recommend using this pumpkin bread bars recipe as your basis omitting nuts/raisins (or adding more!) depending on your preference as it’s a good basic wheat/nut-free pumpkin bread recipe. Good luck! 🙂
