Healthy Pumpkin Einkorn and Oatmeal Bread

img_20160911_111223

It’s that time again. Yep! Pumpkin everything! So to honor the upcoming season I have made a pumpkin bread. This bread uses einkorn flour and whole rolled oats to achieve a moist and perfect bread.

Healthy Pumpkin Einkorn and Oatmeal Bread

Wet:

1 can pumpkin (I used aldi this time)

3/4 cup sugar (I found a great brand called Morena that is $2 for 4lbs of non-gmo sugar)

2 eggs

1/3 cup nutiva refined coconut oil, melted and cooled

2 tsp vanilla

Dry:

2 cups einkorn flour

1 cup whole rolled oats

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp himalayan salt

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg (freshly ground is prefered)

In the kitchenaid mixer or a large bowl blend the wet ingredients well, add the dry and blend until smooth. Heat oven to 350. Spray a bread pan with coconut oil spray. Pour batter in the pan and smooth the top out.  I like to top the bread with some rolled oats or shelled pumpkin seeds ( the green parts)

Bake for 1hr 10 to 1hr 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Scrumptious Pumpkin Pie with Einkorn Crust

 

This recipe is so good and so healthy IMO you could eat it anytime of day or night. And believe me I have! I have no qualms about eating a slice of two of this pie at 2am and I think you might agree.

 

Einkorn Crust

1 ⅓ cup all purpose einkorn flour

¼  tsp Himalayan salt

6 tablespoons very cold Kerrygold Salted butter (Leaf lard will also work for my Paleo peeps)

A few tablespoons very very cold water

 

In your food processor add flour salt and butter. Pulse until you get a sandy texture add in the water and blend until a dough forms about a minute or two. You use very little water so absolutely no more than ¼ cup. Probably 3 tbsp should do.

 

Note* I have a Ninja blender with food processor attachment, I use the plastic blade for this and mix my dough on the dough setting.

 

When the crust dough is done roll it out into a circle on a floured board. Lay it over a buttered glass pyrex pie dish (9.5in). Then just press the dough into the dish gently.

 

Filling

2 whole eggs and 1 yolk, beaten.

1 can Libby’s pumpkin (other brands have not produced as consistent of results as Libby’s for me)

½ to ¾ cup organic sugar (I use ¾ and it’s pretty sweet)

1 cup of the thick portion of Thai Kitchen full fat coconut milk. You can refrigerate the can to get it to separate

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp ground ginger

¼ tsp ground nutmeg (I grind mine fresh using a micro grater)

½ tsp Himalayan salt

 

Beat the eggs, then add all other ingredients and mix until smooth. Pour into unbaked pie crust.

 

Place the pie into a 425 degree oven for 15 minutes then reduce the temperature to 350 and continue baking for 1 hour. A toothpick should come out clean on the edges and mostly clean in the center of the pie. Allow to cool completely before cutting. I like to refrigerate the pie for about three hours before eating.

*I am going to make another pie this weekend so stay tuned for photos!

Fluffy Einkorn Pancakes

Who doesn’t love pancakes. Seriously…

I love pancakes they make a quick and easy breakfast, lunch, or my favorite dinner. LOL These Einkorn pancakes take the cake for ease and health. As some of you know I am allergic to wheat. Like literally I ate a granola bar and wheat was the last ingredient listed (which was why I missed it). So within 20 minutes I had the most terrible stomach and lower back pains. The attack lasted for a few hours. That sucks! I hate being allergic to wheat. It feels unfair. That’s where einkorn comes in! For some reason I am not allergic to this ancient wheat. I was so happy to find it. Though substituting it for regular flour is a little tricky. So here it is my einkorn pancake recipe!
