Coconut Flour Pumpkin Bread
- 3/4 cup coconut flour
- 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder (optional, makes a lighter loaf)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 7 eggs, separated
- 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup palm oil or coconut oil
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Combine all dry ingredients and set aside.
2. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites and sea salt together until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
3. Mix egg yolks, pumpkin puree, palm oil and vanilla together.
4. Mix dry ingredients with pumpkin mixture until well combined. Fold in egg whites.
5. Pour bread batter into a well greased bread loaf pan. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Take foil off and continue to bake until cooked through, another 15-30 minutes. Turn off oven and leave bread in the oven for 30 minutes (this will allow the middle to finish cooking).
