Autumn Pumpkin Spice Loaf

Pumpkin. It’s a Fall staple in households everywhere. I know it is in mine, anyways, When I say Mike loves all things pumpkin, that would be a bit of an under statement. Obsessed would be a better description of how he feels towards the large, orange treat.

This recipe is perfect for those crisp, fall days. Enjoy!

Autumn Pumpkin Spice Loaf PumpkinSpiceBread-850x400

(Vegan & Gluten Free!)

Dry Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill All-Purpose GF Flour
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 can Farmer’s Market Organic pureed pumpkin
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1/3 cup refined coconut oil, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Optional: 1/2 cup chocolate chips (vegan)

What to do:

Preheat oven to 350º. Lightly oil the bottom of your loaf pan. In a medium-size bowl, sift together the dry ingredients.

 In a separate bowl, combine all of the wet ingredients together.

 Add the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and stir together.

 Pour the batter into the pan. Bake in the center of oven for 45-60 minutes. Bread is done when you stick a toothpick in the center and it comes out squeaky clean!

 Let the loaf cool for 20 minutes before removing from pan and enjoy your lovely treat 😉

Oh man

Oh gosh! Oh no! Oh my. Etc…

I haven’t blogged in like, a million years guys. Ok, that may be slightly dramatic. But it’s been at LEAST a million days. And I am sowwie.

So much has been happening. You guys don’t even know. (Really, you don’t. Because I haven’t blogged in a MILLION DAYS!)

Well, I finished my Hatha yoga teacher training (as most of you know) and it was amazing. I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. Not even a ride in the Batmobile. Well… Yea no. Not even that.

Now, I’m proud to say that I’m a certified prenatal/postnatal yoga teacher as well! I took a fabulous course with the same great teacher that taught the first training course and I think I found my new hero. Clare (my teach) is amazing. She’s not only a great teacher, but a fabulous mentor and a lovely friend now. And I couldn’t speak more highly of her. Plus, she got me hooked on these new amazing yoga pants that have galaxies and Starwars stuff on them! Oh man. She’s wonderful.

I’mma make this short and sweet, but I wanted to say hi and thank you for your comments and support regarding all things that I post 🙂

I’m still vegan, still gluten free, still a redhead and still use sarcasm as a defense mechanism. So, I’m pretty much the whole package. Oh, and modest. I’m also that 😉

Take care! I shall be posting an amazing fall recipe soon, so keep watching for that!
