Baking bread can be such a challenge when you are not using all purpose flours (wheat) or if you are using gluten free or grain free ingredients.

    My girls ate this loaf up. My oldest said “Mama, why don’t you make this more often?” It is a hit in my family :)

  2. Rick says:

    Would you consider posting the P/F/C totals for those of us on the DSP? It would be appreciated!

    1. Halle Cottis says:

      I wish I could, but that would just take to much time. One recipe can take me about a half hour to input all the ingredients and instructions. You might want to suggest that on Isabel’s website :)

  3. Stuart Pierce says:

    Love you for posting this!

  4. Jane Symington says:

    Halle, would oat flour or brown rice flour work instead of almound flour. I need to replace it.

  5. Jennifer Toepfer says:

    As a taste tester, I must say…It was AWESOME!!!!

  6. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    I think it would work just fine Jane. Brown rice flour is a little sweeter. Give it a try and see :) Let us know how it works! Also, the batter should be very thick.

  7. Sue McCloud says:

    My, my, my.

  8. Jan Martin Whitlinger says:

    Halle, did you try any versions testing coconut flour in conjunction with (or in lieu of) the almond flour alone?

  9. Rhonda Harader Cain says:

    Yum! Can’t wait to try this!

  10. Gerry Dellinger Wolfe says:

    Stephanie made some and is was asume

  11. Gerry Dellinger Wolfe says:

    sorry for the spelling

  12. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Hey Jan, I have another pumpkin bread out there with coconut flour…I was trying for a different texture with this bread. Coconut flour can get dry, with the almond flour it is super moist. I bet it would work out nicely to use a combination. I tried to make some pumpkin pancakes tonight with coconut flour and although they had great flavor, they were a huge flop…will try again maybe with the coconut flour and almond flour…will keep you posted :)

    1. Marion says:

      Try sifting the coconut flour twice. Then measuring the flour.

  13. Barbara Dodson says:

    Halle ~~~ Thinks looks incredibly delicious!!!

  14. Amita R Kapadia says:

    should we use the raw pumpkin or shall we boil it and then smash it?hope i am not sounding stupid.

  15. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    I roasted mine and then mashed it. Cut in half, take seeds out and roast face down in about 1/4″ water in a 375F oven for about 40-50 minutes or until soft

  16. Amita R Kapadia says:

    ok thanks will surly try it soon and tell yaa,,,,,,,,,,,,,its been a long that i have not had a bread,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,lost 16 pounds feels great.

  17. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    GREAT JOB Amita!

  18. Debbie Banks says:

    I want to make this today but I don’t have almond flour. I see that you said oat flour would be okay and I have brown rice too. Which would you suggest, a combination of the two?…Then, any changes to the recipe? Also, do you have a pie crust recipe Halle?

  19. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Hey Debbie, keep in mind…I have not experimented with either of those flours, so it would be an experiment :) I would try either, brown rice flour might be a little sweeter. Let us know how it turns out. What kind of pie crust are you looking for sweet or traditional pie crust?

  20. Debbie Banks says:

    Traditional, something to make a T-day fresh pumpkin pie with.

  21. Deborah Talamantez says:

    Mmmm. I made this tonight. Move over pumpkin pie!

  22. Songbird9 says:

    Made this yesterday. Used agave nectar instead of honey, and it worked great. Cannot believe how moist it is. I am going to try butter instead of coconut oil next time, as I prefer not to have any coconut flavor. Has anyone tried to add raisins to this?

  23. Songbird9 says:

    Made this with butter, and will go back to the coconut oil. It does seem to bring out more flavor. I do miss raisins and pecans in pumpkin bread, so may make an agave nectar syrup with raisins, pecans and?

    1. hallecottis says:

      @Songbird9 Change your coconut oil to refined and it won’t have the coconut flavor but will still be super moist.  Go right ahead and add raisins (organic if possible) and pecans (chopped)!  Sounds delicious!

  24. Songbird9 says:

    Refined coconut oil is much better. Used raisins and pecans, and next time think I’ll just use the pecans. My friends have gone nuts for this!

    1. hallecottis says:

      @Songbird9 Sounds delicious!  Can’t wait to try it with your adaptations :)

  25. SabrinaBales says:

    I made this tonight! Baked my first pumpkin and I thought i was going to mess it but but how exactly do you do that? Right? So i used rice flour instead of the almond, I couldn’t find the other. It turned out pretty good! I think maybe it could be a little sweeter, i might try adding a little more vanilla next time, it was a little bland, but non the less, it tastes REALLY good! For  my first organic recipe I have to say I think it turned out pretty good! I also might try cheating next time and put a sweet glaze over the top and see how it turns out. Thank you for sharing this, I will definitely be trying more of your recipes!

  26. Sally says:

    I used to make just a regular pumpkin bread recipe (unorganic) and I would add a box of dried instant french vanilla pudding mix in it and everyone loved it. Now I am cooking organically and want to make this recipe for my children and grandchildren but I cant use the vanilla pudding. Can i substitute it with Vanilla powder? If so, do you know how much i should add?

    1. Halle Cottis says:

      I am not sure how you would substitute for that. If you do try to substitute please let us know how it turns out.

  27. Sarah says:

    This is very moist, but mine came out sort of flavorless and not sweet at all. I would definitely add some sweetener to the mix. Too bad because it would have been delicious if it weren’t bland.

  28. Bohemia says:

    Love this recipe, it is chock full of goodness! I used 2 c coconut flour and added 1 cup of whole milk. Added 25 minutes of baking time and voila! Will make this again and again…thank you so much!

  29. agave is bad says:

    FYI, agave nectar is as bad or worse than high fructose corn syrup and will give you a fatty liver. Just because it doesn’t increase blood sugar or insulin (because it is not glucose, but fructose) doesn’t make it healthy.

    1. Jill says:

      Yes! it is …. No Agave!

  30. DJ says:

    I agree that this was rather bland, however the texture/crumb/moistness was GREAT! I’m going to make it again and try increasing the amount of spice and use 1/2 cup honey instead of just 1/4 cup. I don’t like things that are overly sweet at all but do feel this could use a tad bit more sweetness. Will also try adding some chopped nuts and mini chocolate chips at some point because I love the addition of chocolate to almost any baked good. Great recipe, Halle, thanks so much for sharing!

  31. Giovina says:

    I like how moist this is and I think the sweetness is just right. However, It was a little bland for my taste so I will double the cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice amounts next time. Thanks for posting this recipe and helping those of us who are new to the Paleo way of life.

  32. Kris says:

    These comments were helpful. I doubled the pumpkin pie spice and added a bit more honey (seemed to be more tasty, not more sweet) – really, really good recipe!

  33. watchmom3 says:

    Hey Sarah, when that happens to me, I make a quick cream cheese, or conf sugar icing and just drizzle over it. Just for emergency rescue! (:

  34. Nicole says:

    Could you substitute Coconut floor for almond? Blanched Almond is hard to find..just almond meal..which I’m trying today..fingers crossed…i have also used once frozen organic bananas( no way I’m throwing them out because they get ‘past ‘what I would eat raw) with the pumpkin a similar recipe and it came out even moister and deli-sh!

  35. Tk says:

    Hello my son is allergic to coconut so I was wondering what I could substitute and how much for the coconut oil. THANK YOU!

  36. Allison says:

    Followed instructions to a T and this just came out of the oven. It’s like a brick of bland bread. Moist, yes. Made with healthy ingredients? Yes. But oh so not worth it.

  37. emily says:

    I just made this. I substituted 3/4 cup of King Arthur Gluten free flour to mix up the almond texture. Then I used organic cane sugar and a TSP molasses. Added walnuts. Great texture but VERY BITTER. Please tll me what happened.
    I have use Simple mix with almond flour base and it turns out wonderful and not overly sweet.
