Is Pumpkin Good for you?
Pumpkins are absolutely good for you and a great choice to add to your diet. They are very high in fiber but low in calories, so they will keep you full without adding a lot to your food intake each day. Pumpkins are also rich in vitamins A, B2, C and E as well as having a high amount of antioxidants. They are also nutrient rich, so you really can’t go wrong with eating pumpkin, and your new favorite way to eat it will be in a thick slice of this easy paleo pumpkin bread!

How to make Paleo Pumpkin Bread with Coconut Flour
Preheat your oven and line the bottom of a loaf pan with parchment paper, rubbing the sides well with oil.
In a medium bowl, add the flour, spice, baking powder, salt and baking soda and use a wire whisk to combine. In a larger bowl, add the eggs, coconut oil and maple syrup and beat with an electric hand mixer until well combined. Add in the pumpkin and beat the mixture again. Add in the dry ingredients to the wet and mix thoroughly to combine. Let the mixture sit for a bit so that the coconut flour can absorb some moisture.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and place the chopped pecans on top, gently pressing them in. Place the pan in the oven and bake until a toothpick comes out clean and the top is golden brown.
Let the pumpkin bread cool COMPLETELY in the pan, then slice and enjoy!
Top Tips for making Paleo Pumpkin Bread Recipe
- Mix Well: For some loaf recipes, I recommend stirring until the batter is JUST mixed. However, for this pumpkin bread, it is important to mix everything thoroughly as coconut flour takes time to soak up moisture.
- Let is Sit: This goes along with the first tip in that coconut flour needs more time than many other flours to absorb moisture. It’s important to let your batter sit for about 10 minutes before pouring it into the loaf pan to bake.
How to serve Paleo Pumpkin Bread
I recommend serving this pumpkin bread in THICK slices, with whatever butter or nut butter you desire! I love some pecan butter on top, but you could go with cashew, almond or peanut butter and any of them would be delicious! You could also use grass fed butter or ghee as a topping, or even take it to the next level and make it into french toast!
How to store Pumpkin Bread
This pumpkin bread will last up to a week when stored, wrapped in plastic wrap tightly, in the fridge. To freeze it, I would suggest slicing it into portions, wrapping each slice individually in plastic wrap, and then placing them in a freezer style ziploc bag. Label them and they will last for up to 3 months in the freezer!
