GF Coconut Pumpkin Loaf

You can make this harvest pumpkin bread with the canned pumpkin puree, but I really recommend using fresh roasted ones. Roasting a pumpkin is super easy. Cut the pumpkin in half, scoop out the seeds and clean, place in the oven, and bake until soft (30-60 minutes depending on the size of the pumpkin). This creates a beautiful sweetness which the canned ones cannot replicate. Of course, it is healthier for you too. I had no bread at all for years since I started having trouble with gluten, but now I can bake my own creation at home (sometimes fail though >.<) and enjoy a slice or more everyday. This bread is naturally sweet from pumpkin, aromatic from the spices, has a good amount of healthy fat from almond flour and chia seeds and very filling thanks to fibres in coconut flour. You can sprinkle some more pumpkin seeds on top to make more pumpkin-y or cinnamon spiced cream cheese frosting if you have a sweet tooth.
