  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • ¼ cup flaxseed meal
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Make the batter

Heat the oven to 350°F.
  • Grease a loaf pan with coconut oil.
In a mixing bowl, add the almond flour, flaxseed meal, salt, baking soda, and spices. Mix until well combined. In another bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, eggs, vanilla extract, and maple syrup. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix until smooth.


Bake the bread
