Paleo Pumpkin Bread

If you’re looking for an easy holiday bread that’s Paleo friendly, this Paleo Pumpkin Bread recipe is perfect. This dessert is filled with everything that we’ve all grown up loving—cinnamon, nutmeg and, of course, pumpkin. Made with almond butter, arrowroot, and pure pumpkin, it’s perfectly seasoned, deliciously moist, and easy to whip up. The best flour substitution is tapioca flour.

Bake an extra loaf of our Paleo Pumpkin Bread – it makes a great gift for someone living a grain-free lifestyle (or not) as well. Or bake several loaves to keep around as a snack, or serve it as a special dessert idea.  You can substitute any nut butter (such as cashew butter) for the almond butter; just make sure it’s natural with no added sugars. One bite of this pumpkin bread and you’ll be amazed at how much this tastes just like your favorite non-Paleo version!
