AuthorDesireeCategory, , , DifficultyIntermediate

This loaf will definitely get you in the fall spirit. It's low in sugar, easy to digest and can be served for breakfast, as a snack or for dessert. Pair a slice with some maple butter to increase the sweetness and maple flavor.

 1 cup cooked pumpkin
  cup coconut oil
 2 flax eggs (2 Tablespoons of ground flax seed & 6 Tablespoons of filtered water)
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
 ½ tsp ginger
 ¼ tsp sea salt
 2 packages of maple syrup leaf candies from TJs melted
 150 g einkorn sourdough starter
 1 ½ cups einkorn flour
 1 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1

In a bowl place 1 cup of cooked pumpkin, vanilla extract, coconut oil, flax eggs, spices and sea salt. Mix all together.

2

In a small pot, melt 2 packages of trader joe's maple leaf candies or you can sub 1/4 cup of maple syrup for the candies.

3

Add the melted maple candies to the pumpkin mixture and stir all together.

4

Stir in the sourdough starter and add the flour and baking soda. Mix till all is incorporated.

5

Grease a loaf pan (Mine was 10 x 5 x 3) with a light brushing of coconut oil. To make the bread easier to remove after baking, I also lined a strip of parchment paper in the pan.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven. You will know it's done when you stick a toothpick or cake tester in the middle and it comes out clean.

You will also know it's done when the loaf turns a nice golden brown and the whole kitchen starts to smell like cinnamon and pumpkin.

If you're using a 9x5x3 loaf pan, it might take up to 15 more minutes to bake.

What's so great about this loaf is that it's not very sweet. But if you want to ramp up the sweetness and maple flavor, add some of this wonderful maple butter from Trader Joes. It turns slices of pumpkin loaf into a delicious treat which reminds me of pumpkin pancakes. 🙂
