Just as a preface to any baking recipes that I post, I am the kind of baker who mixes up teaspoons and tablespoons and occasionally uses baking soda, instead of baking powder. If you ask my mom, she will tell you I have been ruining Christmas cookie recipes for 20 years.

Why is this relevant? It means that any recipe I do is SUPER simple and if I can do it, I’m pretty sure anyone can do it!

This will be my third fall season making this bread. I think the fall is the worst season to have a gluten/dairy allergy because you really miss out on the best breads and pies. However, thanks to this recipe I have a little less food FOMO (fear of missing out)!

Definitely worth trying!

Supplies Needed:

  • Greased Mini Loaf Pan (9x5)  (Can also try making them into muffins!)
  • Hand Mixer if you have one, I usually go without.


3/4 cup pumpkin puree (cooked) (NOT THE SWEETENED PIE FILLING)
1 ripe banana
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup Almond Flour
1 tbsp Maple Syrup
4 pastured eggs
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (if not available, use cinnamon and nutmeg)

Optional Add-ins: Chocolate Chips, Walnuts

4.     In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients together

5.     Add the wet and dry ingredients and blend together with hand mixer
