Paleo Pumpkin Bread

Updated January 9, 2021

Y’all, let’s talk Pumpkin Bread! Because, if I was a Spice Girl, my name would be Pumpkin Spice. I’ve been living the pumpkin spice life since WAY before it became a thing. When I lived in Nashville in the late 90s, I would stop by Fido Coffee Shop on my way to work and pick up a large coffee with Splenda and a Skinny Pumpkin Chip Muffin. (I was at the height of my low-fat, fake sugar, ruin my health phase. Someone go slap some sense into that girl with the bad highlights and over plucked eyebrows. Sigh. I can’t even.) 

Anyway. Seriously EVERY MORNING. I don’t care if the weather is hot or cold or what. Give me all the pumpkin stuff. And I’ve forced my children to love all things pumpkin as well. 

Sorry guys, this is how it is. We eat pumpkin pie and pumpkin loaf and pumpkin cheesecake and pumpkin soup. These boys have been able to order their own pumpkin loaf at Starbucks since the age of 2. I’m totally winning at this parenting gig. 

So now we just do our pumpkin spice life a bit healthier — all the fat, none of the grains, and just cleaner ingredients. But there is absolutely NO sacrificing that flavor. Because that’s what I want. What I really really want. #pumpkinspicegirl #poshspiceforever

Y’all are going to love how easy and versatile this recipe is.
