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 preferred)

In the kitchen-aid 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 1 hr 10 to 1 hr 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
